Learning to Tweet

Yes, it has taken me this long to really sit down and learn how to tweet. It’s been an interesting experiment using Twitter, trying to fit everything that I want to say in under 140 characters, including spaces! It reminds me of a class I took years ago. My professor would not allow our "thesis statement" to be more than 30 words. Sounds easy, until you try it. It’s hard to communicate big ideas in little bitty chunks. Some things simply are not meant to be said in under 140 characters. But I have to say that sometimes having that kind of limit can help to focus what is really important in what I am trying to share. Tweeting is my reminder that sometimes less is more, and that simplicity can help to move a discussion or an idea one step further. Of course, it’s taken me 817 characters to share that thought!
