Twitter badge now permanent.

I've been fiddling around with a twitter badge of some sort for this blog. I've gone back and forth for a few reasons. Mostly, I couldn't find any to fit on my page, but I'm taken aback by the fact that a lot of people are adamantly anti-twitter. These people are probably also the assholes that were anti-cell phones five years ago. Instead of realizing they're unable to overcome their hatred of anything new in order to properly determine the usefulness of a new product or service, they continue to bash everything.

Wow, was that defensive or offensive? I CONTINUE:

Another reason I hesitated to install a twitter badge is because I'm on twitter mainly to follow a few people, who know things before I do or are very entertaining. Twitter is a nesting/proving ground for memes. That's why I use it. So true, I mainly post boring daily shit--hey, that's what it's for, but at the very least when I go through a dry spell on this blog people can use it to see I'm still alive.

Hear that people? I'm still alive!!!

And for people who say twitter won't be around in a few years, that may be true. But that's beside the point. How many people use AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) anymore? But millions of people still use instant messaging, be it Google, MSN, Yahoo, etc. Same with twitter. Sure, some people may use Facebook's updates, or some generic twitter knock off, and a lot of people are using themes to make their blog more twitter-like. Perhaps someday some new app will de-throne twitter. It's almost certain, I guess. That doesn't discredit the idea--so many people are ripping it off it's already officially a success. Officially.
