Twittero, ergo sum
Had René Descartes been living today – I am sure he would have a philosophical view on Twitter. Maybe even doubting its existence or his own. How trivial can twitter really become?
I had a great laugh yesterday checking out this video.
The cartoon guy in the video says:
“Twittering is just randomly bragging about your unexceptional life.”

Twitter for birders
I am sure most of my birding friends have seen my two manuals on Twitter for birders. If not here they are again:
- Twitter for birders, part 1. An introduction
- Twitter for birders, part 2. Hashtags, RSS and Twitter can be used as a mobile Rare Bird Alert
There is yet another Twitter-like application in Beta version called Chirp-tracker. It is more directed to birders. The big advatage for a birder is that there is less noice. Only birders are participating and chirping about birds. It will most likely become a huge success among birders. I hope it will become more like a proper Twitter-client in the future, so I can use it instead of Tweetdeck also for my non-birding tweeting. To try out the beta version. Get on Twitter and follow @chirptracker and ask to try out the beta version.
