why i (don't) twitter

when twitter came to be, i had already been living away from nyc, where its dynamic updates would have been useful to keep up with friends moving about the city (much like the original dodgeball intended).

nonetheless, i liked twitter's simple interface, and most importantly, ability to access it using sms, at a time when my phone was just that, a phone.

so, i used it primarily as a notebook, keeping reminders and notes. my life and interests moved at a slower pace, and i recorded them elsewhere, in more detailed form.

now, my phone is more than a phone, and powers more sophisticated ways of keeping notes and reminders, which raises the question: why twitter?
