I may be the last person in the world to come to the table, but I’ve bitten the bullet and joined Twitter.

Although I’ll admit to being off-put by the 140 character limit, most of my reluctance to do it had nothing to do with Twitter itself, but was a symptom of a wider manifestation.

I have a finite amount of time, unless I’m to give up the day job (unlikely at the moment) or to stop writing, which is the whole point of blogging for me — I have the anthology Future Bristol to promote– so I have to ration that time.

I’m already on LJ, Facebook, MySpace, WordPress, LinkedIn, and GoodReads, as well various forums such as Interzone‘s, EPIC, and multiple other groups. Admittedly I can import LJ into WordPress, but until I work out how to transfer more of the posts, I have a significant duplication of work.

But that said, so many people recommended it that I felt I had to join up, and so far I’m finding Twitter to be less work than I envisaged, so maybe my reluctance was misplaced.

Time will tell.
