Procrastinating and a response to Twitter vs. Plurk..
Just as the title said, I am procrastinating on the studying that is needed to be down for my XML class, and my book reviewer life.. but I was reading this from Hynavian‘s blog, and it kinda inspired me to write a little on this topic.
Now as a reflection angle.
I really like twitter though, and I can say that the people I follow, or who are following me… can fall into two categories – one are anime fans like I am – Gia, Omo, Hinano, JP, Jlist, and another group are fellow librarians…. so as a professional angle… I try to strive forth….I earnestly believe that blogging is paving the way for computer social connections…after all my MLS project was a survey on librarians who blog.
My criteria for friending on Twitter is quite broad, and as long as I can connect with you, then I’ll follow you back. I am trying to use Twitter, as a social tool as well…I twitter a lot.. well not as much as other Twitters I read, but I am getting there… currently 929 updates…
Because there are so many competitions out there, trying to conquer the micro blogging space (FaceBook vs. MySpace, PC vs. Apple… you get the picture…!) I realize that there is another social micro blogging networking that is out there… Plurk, and this is another seemingly cool social networking.. thingy. I have actually signed up with Plurk as well, so each their social niche.. so far I am testing the waters of Plurk, so who knows.. I squatted down on Plurk, so that my normal user name, will not be taken.. animemiz or anime_miz… hmm.. still…. I believe that twitter has a lead over Plurk, but as time will go on, and see how easy Plurk can do it for me… perhaps I will also adjust to using Plurk as as well as Twitter… so don’t hesitate and jump onto the micro blogging like I did. By no means am I abandoning my blogs, it just seem easier to connect and give quick thoughts on Twitter… (although there are moments when I stick my foot in my mouth far too often… but this is something I am trying to work upon…)
Here are actually additional links for reading up on the debate on Plurk vs. Twitter..
I am going to cross post this onto my professional blog…
