If You’re Not on Twitter, You Are Unspeakably Lame

I am in the epicenter of Twitter. And yet I am not Twittering.
Shame on me. I am embarrassed at my lack of early adopter-ness, at my absence of with-it-ness.
I am at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas, right now—this is the epicenter of indie Web hipness. Everyone here is Twittering. They Twittered during the keynote Sunday with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg, expressing their displeasure with how the interview was conducted. And they Twitter during the day to tell their “followers” that they’ve added a new video, updated their blog or are now streaming live. That’s how the Twitter-ers get the word out about their online video world.
So here’s the thing. I am on Twitter. But I don’t make such extensive use of it. Should I? Do you want my Twitter updates? Or do you prefer this blog to be unspeakably lame?
