Gallifrey Tweets No More

I have decided to stop the aggregate Tweets posts to LJ. It turns out I almost never go back to look at them, and it was getting kind of discouraging to look at my LJ and see "My Tweets, My Tweets, My Tweets" all the time. I think it was producing more noise than signal.

I do miss the days of a vibrant LJ community, tho. Where have all the comments gone? Say what you want about life in 140 characters, there is at least a lot of conversation going on over there!

I'll try to make a point of putting more cool stuff here tho. :)

EDIT: Hmm. Maybe I'm being too hasty here. You folks tell me, yes Tweets, or no? I'd like to know what people think. :)

I've wondered whether to carry on with that too. Originally I wanted to have the "My tweets" posts be private, and was intending to regularly look back at them, make a proper LJ post summarising anything worth summarising, and delete the auto-posts. That has never happened, of course... but I have had a few positive replies to the auto-posts from people who aren't on twitter.

I'm not really sure which is best. I'm not all that in favour of making Twitter be the be-all and end-all of my online communications, but it does dominate. I wish I had more time (and inclination) to write LJ posts, but I doubt many would read them. Even when I post a link to Twitter (or have LJ do so) I suspect hardly anyone actually follows the link, given that most won't even spot the tweet in amongst the torrent. (Well, I suppose some will; I probably just follow far too many people.)

I've found a few gems among your links, too, Pippin.
