I was reminded today that it was my Twitter birthday. Five years ago today I signed up and created my first Twitter account.
It took me a few months to work out what was going on and what all the fuss was about. Now I tend to drift in and out of intense usage as my work schedule permits.
I love Twitter, but I’ve probably fallen out of lust with it.
Don’t get me wrong it still holds a place in my heart, the love is still there but it’s a familar, comfortable love – and I like it that way. It’s not quite become a utility, something I only notice when broken, but it’s certainly not the first thing I ‘plug into’ when I get up in the morning.
Nowadays my lust is often focused on the younger networks like Instagram or Thisismyjam (I flirted with Path and despite it’s beauty it didn’t give me enough back). However today given it’s my birthday I’m going to spend it just with Twitter, for old time sake.
