Twitter was down for a while today. In order to feed the Twitter addiction, @shareski started a group Skype chat and started to drag people into it, who in turn started to drag more people into it. Pretty soon we had our very own pseudo-Twitter going, as everyone continued adding people into the chat space until there must have about 50 people in the room… easily the biggest Skype chat I’ve had.
Twitter eventually came back up, and a huge collective global sigh of relief was breathed.
Still, the Skywitter chat was a fun experiment. As Vicki Davis observed…
“It is like an Elvis impersonator — not the real thing but close enough when the real one is dead.”
That comment made my day. 🙂
