I have a habit of signing up for new web services just to check them out. I don’t really call myself an early-adopter although it would seem like it given the speed at which I sign up for these types of things. Back in April of 2007, shortly after Twitter went live as “Twitter” (it had a couple of different names before that I believe), I signed up for an account there and left it pretty dormant until that summer. That summer was when I went to Australia and really started using the service on my mobile.

Since then, I’ve tweeted over 7000 individual tweets, many of which I’m sure puzzle the 700+ followers I have and yet I still don’t quite know why I do it. I just do it and it’s almost become natural now to tweet about something I’m experiencing day in and day out.

If you’ve got a Twitter account, why not follow me here: @doobybrain. We can go on virtual adventures together!
