I signed up for Twitter a couple of months ago, made a few posts, and pretty much abandoned it. If you’re not familiar with it, Twitter is a micro-blog. You make posts of 140 characters or less. I don’t follow many people and I’m not sure what value this whole idea has. I know that NASA used it recently to keep people up-to-date on Mars/Phoenix. That seems like a pretty interesting use. I have to believe that an interplanetary mission is far more interesting that most people’s day.
Last week I decided I was going to write down what I did all day for five straight days. Every 1/2 hour, or so, I will jot down a note about what I’m doing or what I’ve done over the last half hour. I think I have a good idea what I do all day, but I want some objective evidence to see if my perceptions match reality. I was thinking I need a little program that popped up a userform every 1/2 hour for me to type my note. Then I thought that Twitter might work well for this. It won’t pop up a reminder, but at least I could make my notes from anywhere.
I’m not encouraging you to follow me on Twitter. It will be excruciatingly boring, I can assure you. However, if you ever wondered it what you’re day would be like if you had chosen accountancy as a career, well this should be right up your alley. http://twitter.com/dkusleika
