I’ve been using Twitter for the past few weeks and while I think there are some interesting aspects to it’s intended purpose of telling friends and the world what you are doing, the true utility is microblogging. Your “posts” are 140 characters in length and can be entered from a web browser, instant messaging client or even a mobile phone via SMS.
So I mashed up this idea in a Wine 2.0 sort of way and started to post short reviews of the wine I am drinking right now. These will be posted well before formal reviews and will sometimes have scores if my description is short enough. I invite anyone else to join me and add their Twitter feed to my friends list. If there are enough wine loving Twitter users, I might even create a community blog to aggregate all our posts. A domain has been purchased for the purpose. I think this has a lot of potential but could be just too geeky to see the truth
Will anyone else join me?
