Twitter is still my social network of choice for interacting

A shocking number of Twitter impression for a simple Volkswagen Beetle update I posted yesterday – well over 100,000. I do use Twitter regularly to share and comment a variety of topics, but rarely have tweets generated more than 10,000 looks or a handful of retweets and likes (on the other hand, my blog’s Google Adsense income has gone up significantly this year too, so who knows?)

Likely because I do follow Volkswagen a bit closer than most, I was early in realizing that the iconic VW Beetle would end production in 2019. This triggered more than 10 times other popular tweets. The end for the Beetle must have struck a nerve?


Another interesting post was Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey’s comment as to the meaning behind the name:



Desultory - des-uhl-tawr-ee, -tohr-ee

  1. lacking in consistency, constancy, or visible order, disconnected; fitful: desultory conversation.
  2. digressing from or unconnected with the main subject; random: a desultory remark.
