These days – perhaps a function of my lifestyle – the mobile device is becoming my primary content reading and browsing tool. This is slowly changing my habits and I wonder if this is part of a larger trend.
With the advent of Twitter lists, I find myself dipping in and out of the stream to catch up not only on news but blog posts from friends and companies whose products and services I use or have more than a passing interest. However the changes in how I interact with media go deeper than news.
I am an avid reader. Each year I read several dozen books – exclusively nonfiction (call me boring, it’s ok).
Where I used to finish one book before picking up the next, nowadays, I keep a virtual shelf of books on my iPhone and dip in and out in Twitter-like bursts of time. This could never work for fiction but it suits me fine.
So Twitter is definitely reconditioning this 40-year-old toward a new way of living. How about you?
