To be fair, I'm working daily toward a world where most communication could fit into the space allocated to cookie fortunes, so maybe I should have seen the usefulness of a 140 character limit sooner. It's not just that, though. There's considerably less of the "here's what I'm eating, reading, buying" flow that makes Facebook difficult for me. Here's my life, from which you are largely excluded. Stand on the porch and look inside through the peephole at the tiny cluster of people inside. Now log off. Twitter is funnier, more direct, to the point. I feel a sense of place in the midst of it. I would not have thought such a thing possible.
I've tried twice to upload my tiny feed to this website, but it doesn't want to go. In the meantime, I am a human being named Heather Seggel who would rather have friends than a social network, but I'm also @HeatherSeggel, should you want to follow me.
