Late adopter

I'm often late to the party, whether with sewing patterns, or with social media. I swear I set up my Facebook account nearly two years after all my friends did. 

I was chatting to a colleague the other day on the eve of an event about how we would use Twitter. We both realised that, despite knowing the terminology, we didn't really know much about it. "I need to get with the 21st Century" my colleagues cried, "I prefer late adopter" I responded. 

So now I am trying to live up to that name. I've actually begun to tweet. I'm dipping my toes in the water at the moment but if you would like to say hello you can find me @iwanttobeturtle Unfortunately Twitter set the character length at 15 which means I had to drop the "a" from iwanttobeaturtle. I'll eventually get used to small numbers of characters...

And I'll be sharing my late adoption of the Victoria Blazer as soon as I have photos.

  1. I set up a twitter account years ago, and a facebook account - and use neither!! I will, perhaps, eventually...I'm also a late adopter (and in any case, the new media is probably just around the corner..)

    1. So true about new media. I just can't keep up, hence being late to the party!

  2. I've had a twitter account for several years and haven't even looked at it in over a year! I don't really know what to do with it to be honest, and none of my friends are on it, so it always seems a bit pointless.

    1. I've heard twitter is the place where you connect with people that you don't know but have something in common with. Seems to be the case with me at the moment anyway...

  3. I have a Facebook account - which I don't use :P and I really have no idea what twitter does (but I like the little bird icon :)). But you are very brave to dive into that world. Enjoy and maybe you can share your experience here on your blog with the ones that don't have a twitter account ;)

    1. Thanks, we'll see what happens. I hope it doesn't become as addictive as I'm told it can be.

  4. I do love twitter, but I find I can either blog, tweet or facebook - attempting to keep up with all 3 takes far more time than I have to spare! Will come to find you on twitter.

    1. Indeed, I do worry about trying to keep up with them all!
