It’s one of those annoying services that becomes highly addictive when you have the time and head-space to give it some attention.
But at other times it’s either a massive distraction and productivity-killer, or else it’s ‘out of order’.
Erin sums it up nicely:
I’ve been informed of some valuable content via Twitter, but equally I’ve failed to finish some work because I’ve de-focused from my work and diverted my few remaining brain cells to its incessant tapping into the collective instant pan-global conversation.
It truly is addictive. I wonder if there is a ‘TA’ branch near me…
