Bye Bye Birdie

It was perhaps December 2008 or early January 2009 when I first heard about Twitter, then described as a micro-blogging site. I remember thinking that it could never replace my blog, this blog.

140 character limit tweets? Given I would regularly have to edit blog posts down from two-to-three thousand words the idea that I would spend more time tweeting than updating this site seemed laughable when I did finally register an account and yet look at how infrequently I’ve posted here.
