This is SO not adding to my enthusiasm about Twitter…

First there was the breathless blog post from Karon Thackston (Marketing Words Copywriting Blog):  “Let’s tweet!  I’ve set up a Twitter account and have already been having tons of fun.  You can follow me at @karonthackston.  Pop over and say, ‘Hi!'”  …Then an old classmate, Steve, from my University of Puget Sound days, told me I should get on it – and he’d follow me if I started tweeting.

But today, I read this post – from a blog I find very useful, SEOptimise:  “Lately more and more people follow me who I have never heard of before. As I follow roughly 400 people myself I can’t follow everybody ‘back’ in order not to lose track of my many virtual Twitter friends. There already is some serious information overload bugging me.” 

Uh, that scares me a little.  Just thought I’d pass along “the dark side” of Twittering, even though I am still firmly committed to getting out there and playing in traffic.  Plus, I promised Steve I’d do it!
