stuck in twitter mode.

My main reason for doing this is that lately I find myself stuck in a loop that I think a lot of us are stuck in at the moment. Check facebook, check twitter, update, check in, retweet, copy & paste link, upload photo, hashtag, and repeat... again and again throughout the day. Thing is I actually enjoy this kind of social interaction. I think our generation has come to accept it as a valid form of communication, the quickest one there is, and it's hard to keep our attention for very long. Twitter, my preferred social media network has a 140 character limit. Sure, it forces us to be concise which can be a good thing, but I think the writer inside me also misses having the opportunity to be verbose. My first delve into online social networking was in the form of online diaries, which today could be considered basically the anti-twitter. So in the spirit of finding balance in all things, I'm going to kick it old school for a while, if you will, and write some full length articles. I will mainly focus on the Australian hip hop music scene: my experiences at concerts & festivals, my opinion on albums, songs, and videos, my interactions with people, and any other news or tidbits I'd like to share along the way. Hoping I can keep this twitter generation interested past the first line, don't worry there will be pictures too, so in case you get daunted by the thought of reading all those words, you can take a break and just stare at the pretty colours for a while...

On a side note I find it interesting that spell check recognises twitter as a valid word but not facebook..

Onward and upward people!
