There are people in real life or online who will be in the moment with their interactions. For example, I had a nice 28 tweet exchange with @rvxn about a week ago.
It was a fleeting conversation with no guarantee of anything more.
These fleeting interactions are the only promise of this art form. It has no celebration of accomplishment. Even if it turns into friendship or whatever sort of relationship, it is what it is in the moment. Barring a photograph or recording, there is no physical evidence for that interaction happening except in your own mind.
But we need to take advantage of fleeting moments. They’re the bridges to different worlds of people. There’s something mystical about that.
Twitter is simply one of the many enablers and recorders in this highly connective human era, so why not use it?
