So, I've finally given in and set up my own Twitter account. I'm not that big on it yet, but I quite like the idea of having somewhere to put up all the strange things that I am thinking all the time. I used to do this on Facebook but it seemed a little out of place, so maybe Twitter is the way to go for me. And it seems that since Twitter and related social media are seemingly the 'way of the future,' it makes sense to be on the inside, rather than the other way around.
On a related matter, it struck me the other day that I am quite stubborn when it comes to new technology. I was thinking about how old people just seem incapable of using computers and the like, and I arrogantly declared to myself that in my old age I wouldn't have such problems. But then I considered the advances in technology in the last few years and how little I have had anything to do with them. I have steadfastly refused to get an iPhone or iPad, to use the internet on a mobile, and (previously) to use sites like twitter and co.
When it comes to technology, a lot of the time I don't buy into it- literally- because it is too expensive, and I am quite a miser. But I think that is a dangerous mindset to have from the outset, so I plan to be a bit more open-minded in future. It's amazing how you don't realise things like this until it hits you in the face! So look out for me on Twitter if you're that way inclined- quite unoriginally, I am @stonygrangey. I've got a pretty cool background anyway! Let's see how it goes!
