Latest Updates on Hunt The West
Hunt The West on Twitter
April 27, 2009.
I'm a 40-something-year-old man who drives a truck, shoots guns, and goes a couple weeks every year without bathing. Like most guys who share that combination of demographic attributes, I don't really know what the hell Twitter is.
I'm pretty technically savvy — I edit this website, and I work in the software industry, for example.
I have a cell phone, but I use it so little that I keep forgetting how to make outbound calls on it. I've sent a total of one text message in my life. I definitely don't use Facebook or MySpace. Overall, I suspect I don't have enough of a "connected" mentality to be Twitter's target market.
But, I like hunting, and if you poke around on Twitter there's certainly very, very little hunting-related content.
So I thought I'd give it a try and see if it goes anywhere, even if I don't totally get it.
I'll avoid talking about what I ate for lunch or other inane personal stuff. Might be a good forum to follow the western big game draws, or give advance notice of breaking hunting-related news.
And it should definitely be a fun channel to report updates from the field when I'm out hunting.
This is my Twitter address (or whatever you call it) in case you'd like to watch the experiment unfold:
