After some mulling over social networks and other various tools – I’ve decided to experiment with Twitter.
Now, if I’m honest I feel a little reticent with all this. Not being one to be easily swayed – some friends have raised some valid points in me creating a Twitter account. Some aspects to it I find absolutely bizarre – why would anyone want to know if you’ve just left the house for work or how much you just enjoyed a meal and more?
But I can see it’s merits when it comes to sharing aspects of a trip out in the hills. If I’m up on a summit and catch a beautiful sunrise, I tend to take a snap on my phone and then send that with some brief description to a number of friends.
On reflection, that’s what I’ll be doing on Twitter. Any outdoors related stuff – I’ll ‘twitter’ it (is that grammatically correct?).
So, don’t expect me to talk about what I had for breakfast – unless I’m on a wild camp – or tell you all which pub I’m about to visit. This will purely be a way to share with you any impulsive thoughts and moments to do with the great outdoors.
It could be a passing thought on the new Rab Exodus I’m testing (I could forget little details and Twitter could be useful for that), a picture of my camp for the night and so on and on. It’s only stuff I share with friends as when I can when out on the hills, anyway. We’ll see eh?
When do I start?
