Calling Attention to Twitter Micro-Blogging in my Sidebar


I’ve changed the color and increased the font size on my Twitter posts on the right. I’ve done this for a clear reason: to highlight the fact that Twitter being in my sidebar is part of my actual blogging platform, as opposed to supplemental or peripheral content.

In other words, in terms of my own Twitter content, Twitter is blogging.

This is part of my ongoing attempt to define precisely what Twitter is to me, and to resist the temptation to let it creep into other spaces, such as chat and “place to hang out”.

If it ends up being all these things to me later that’s fine, but I do know that the primary role for Twitter, at least as it’s presented on my site, is that of a supplement to my main blog. ::
