Rachel Hiles comments on her twitter reluctance over at Tricycle in a post called  A Buddhist’s Guide to Twitter.

As someone slow to embrace the Twitter phenomenon, I’ve approached the site with great caution, and perhaps a touch of suspicion. I often wondered if I could use Twitter without falling victim to my ego and shamelessly indulging in detailing the ins-and-outs of my day, giving a digital voice to my inner monologue. Determined not to be the last person on earth who wasn’t “tweeting,” I did some research and found the advice of Soren Gordhamer especially helpful.

Of course you can read on, but make sure you give Gordhamer’s post a read as well.
