Out of the closet – twitter

I’m out. Of the closet. OK. I’m a twitter user.
Omar Gallaga, Statesman blogger/writer and Rodolfo Gonzalez, photographer, caught up with me on South Congress last week and outed me as a twitter user in a story on twitter. Here I am posing for a picture above at Jo’s Coffee. He calls me “amiable”. Nice. He says my hair is “unruly under the hat”. I should have pushed harder for that haircut from Dorothy last week, darn.
Gallaga mentions Robert Scoble’s use of twitter at SXSW and it was Scoble on twitter that got me an invite to the Salt Lick for a super barbecue beerfest at SXSW. It was actually CotÃ© that turned me on to twitter about 2 weeks ago.
Gallaga really hits it on the mark when he talks about how twitter is a “springboard to new creations”. Today twittervision, which is a mashup of google maps and twitter, introduced “personal twittervision” which lets you post comments while viewing every comment posted on twitter worldwide.
