tweeting better than blogging?

as suspected, by me – because even though i’m not young i am guilty – people are not blogging so much no more but instead hanging out in the twitter zone or facebook.
well, i’m not guilty of facebook, too much dross and very lowest common denominator, but i am a twitter hound nowadays. but mostly in order to get pointers to other online articles and news stories etc, not so much to update people on my own inane daily thoughts.

i will continue to do that on a blog, since i do like making longish essays.
well, id rather people read them, but even so i’d do it anyway. the only difference being, that online i’m more likely to watch my tongue than in a personal log or ‘diary’.

check out the NYT article on same, based on pew surveys and so on…
like here’s a quote —

The Internet and American Life Project at the Pew Research Center found that from 2006 to 2009, blogging among children ages 12 to 17 fell by half; now 14 percent of children those ages who use the Internet have blogs. Among 18-to-33-year-olds, the project said in a report last year, blogging dropped two percentage points in 2010 from two years earlier.

Former bloggers said they were too busy to write lengthy posts and were uninspired by a lack of readers. Others said they had no interest in creating a blog because social networking did a good enough job keeping them in touch with friends and family.
