I Hardly Use Google Because of Twitter
It’s true. Most of my time is now spent being referred by a select chosen few from my list of “Twits” to the news, information, and media that they find, and I’m sure the same goes for them.
Twitter is like standing in the largest cocktail party on the planet, except that you can tune out all of the chatter you’re not interested in, and you can locate and connect with those few people that are talking about what you’re interested in. Imagine how much time you would save at a charity fund raiser if you were able to identify the people you knew were interested in the same things you were interested in without having to spend half of the evening schmoozing those you have nothing in common with just to find those who you do have something in common with (whew!)
Are we creating our own little exclusive tight knit mini-countries in cyberspace? Who knows. What I do know is that because of the proliferation of exceptional material that I am referred to through Twitter and those that I have chosen to follow, I no longer find it necessary to search Google as much. In fact, I hardly use a search engine anymore.
Twitter has become my search engine. It lets me know when someone else searches for something I’m interested in, and it points me to all of the great things that people I’m connected to recommend.
