I got an unexpected response to a barnlib tweet about marriage equality, where I was a tad defensive about how joyful the newlyweds seem to me when so many of my queer friends think same-sex marriage not a worthwhile fight.
The following article was originally published in The U*N*A*B*A*S*H*E*D Librarian, a magazine for which I am a Contributing Editor, though I haven't contributed very much lately. Interested in writing for us? Pitch me something!
I was a reluctant Tweeter, but thought I would stick a toe in the microblogging pool by creating a Twitter account for the Barnard Library. I want to share that experience and give you just a small amount of background on Twitter and microblogging.
I went to Blogging and Microblogging since I'm a bit curious about Twitter. It turns out there's another microblogging tool called Pownce that was also discussed. After the session, I remain curious but unconvinced. One attendee said that Twitter, rather than sucking up more time, as I fear it would, helps you do things faster (e.g. takes away the pressure to write loooong blog posts like this one).
