Sa préface :
I will restrict myself to writing a very short piece (in the best Twitter tradition). As what the British call an ‘old fogey’ [I draw the technological line in music at the CD and do not possess an iPod or an iPad] I don’t really understand Twitter, or see the point of it. But I feel that I should have my foot in the water, and so the opening words of any posts I make to my own blog (www.brianbollen.com) are automatically Tweeted, as, it seems, are posts I make on Facebook (I don’t understand that either, but it has been instrumental in rebuilding links with old friends and family). I am very gradually building up a Twitter fan base, which is in itself very eclectic, ranging from someone claiming to be Stormborn Daenerys Targaryen to Alban Jarry, one of my latest recruits.
Although I am a financial journalist, I post musings on other subjects as they tickle my fancy (for example, on the naming of Wayne Rooney as the new captain of the England football team in August 2014:

I find the weekly summary of my Twitter activity oddly interesting. This morning, for instance (September 5 2014) I find that I have 520 total views, three new followers and three link visits. All without any additional effort on my part beyond the writing and the posting. I have even had the occasional response to Tweets and seen the even more occasional response ReTweeted, which is flattering, demonstrating that now and again some people do read what I spend my days writing.
However, I am a professional writer, and this is where I see Twitter at its least impressive. For people who write for fun, the ‘exposure’ it offers is possibly flattering. As one who pays his bills through his writing, though, Twitter and LinkedIn and Facebook and other ‘social media’ leave me stone cold. To date, none of those has generated a penny of income for me in terms of attracting business. To me, that is the step forward that Twitter must take, if it is not to remain largely a sprawling collection of inanities.
