Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The ads and trackers of outrageous Facebook
Or dive into a raging sea of Tweeters,
And by partaking, join them?
(With apologies to William Shakespeare!)
I don't want to go on Facebook. I've written many times before about how that company's cynical disregard for its users' privacy and security makes it beyond the pale in my book. However, I come across several articles each day that I like, or which intrigue me, but about which I don't have time to write on this blog. I also come across books that strike a chord, or YouTube video clips that interest me, or articles on other blogs that catch my eye. (I used to address the latter in regular "Around The Blogs" articles, but again, those take a lot of time to prepare; and when I'm working to a book deadline, it's hard to keep them up.)
I'm trying to decide whether to open a Twitter account, where I can provide links to things like that. Would you be interested in following it? Is this something you'd find useful or valuable? Or would I simply be lost in the background noise? I'd be grateful for your feedback. Please let me know in Comments what you think.
Thanks in advance.
