Twitter and Thinking, Writing, Speaking
I believe Twitter has changed the way I think, improved my writing skills, and influences my speech patterns. I find myself leaving out words in speaking and blog posts, writing incomplete sentences, misspelling, and assuming the reader knows what I’m talking about as if we were in a tweet conversation.
I asked this question on Twitter: Does Twitter make you think and speak in short, incomplete sentences?
My responses were as different as my tweethearts. Oh yes. Twitter words invade my conversations and writings.
This is what my followers had to say.
No, it makes me rethink what I want to write. If anything I am better at summarizing.

I often say, “OMG, that was . . .” When I shockingly realize that I’ve just spoken in text speak, I forget what I was saying.
It makes us realize Prince was seeing the future when he gave his songs short-hand titles. #twitterspeak #textese

PhoneBoy no. I had problems speaking long before Twitter 🙂
