Twitter - Titillation
They say any business today must be on twitter to connect with its customers. Sole practitioners in law especially need to get their message out. Yet my observation of Twitter these days is that in 140 characters, people make, break, or bore. Trump is an embarrassment with his idiocracy being most tellingly trumpeted from the 5 am toilet hour. Prominent figures have been outed as frauds or racists due to one too many or too honest tweets. And it has been made into the pulpit of bullies. Some heralded for castigating the 'right' target, others vilified for picking on the vulnerable.
In 140 characters the stakes are high. So it is with trepidation that I joined the ranks. And Lord knows I'm more scared to tweet than I am driven to speak my mind. Each time, I wonder, will it come back to make me look stupid? boring? politically incorrect?
No, I am not the general charging ahead of his troops in this battlefield. I have yet to find the direction Twitter will take me, or I it.
It is a window for now that I only occasionally peer out of, and usually with some fear of who might be looking in. But as time moves forward, I hope that I can contribute some pithy bits of wisdom; perhaps some well chosen wit to skewer a villain of the day. So far, I think I've only managed to be middle of the road, with nobody taking any notice. That's a little disheartening, but in a medium that can supercharge your 5 am thought and send it scurrying around the world before you finish your shower, I think I'll stick with caution until I find a feel for what Twitter can be for Forstner Law.
