Several months ago, I began writing a post titled Social Media Migration, in which I was outlining why I have begun engaging more with folks on Twitter and less with those on Facebook. Among the first reasons listed were a simple & clean interface, focused functionality, content control, and speed.
As yesterday came to a close, I realized that one of the main reasons I now turn to Twitter is the diversity of insights gleaned, interests exercised, and resources presented. In its purest form, Twitter is about simple conversation. Just yesterday and today, I was able to carry on the following mini-conversations: (click the Tweet date to view the full conversation)

@UaMV wow dude! Had no idea. Blessing that it all happened during warmer weather. Am I right?

@UaMV @ericdodds @saddington Good to remember Gandalf's line, "Despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not."

When this tool is stewarded well, you can see micro-communication at its best. So, what do you say? Ready to escape the noise of Facebook? Come join me on Twitter.
Many thanks to my tweeps!
I love twitter for very similar reasons. G+ seems a bit too congested to my linking. Twitter means more living and short and sweet conversations. It can be addictive with links and articles, but much easier to control and maintain.
Yeah, maybe a bit addictive. Before maybe a year ago, I was solely active on Facebook … I’ve definitely migrated. Toyed with G+, but that’s about it. Thankful to have a job that allows and encourages me to explore various avenues of engagement online.
