catecumen: (improve the silence)
Wikipedia definition of "woofer":

Woofer is the term commonly used for a loudspeaker driver designed to produce low frequency sounds, typically from around 40 hertz up to about a kilohertz or higher. The name is from the onomatopoeic English word for a dog's bark, "woof" (in contrast to the name used for speakers designed to reproduce high-frequency sounds, tweeter).

A novelty site called Woofer requires a minimum of 1400 characters, and uses people's existing Twitter identities. It's an amusing concept, and I was playing with it today.

I am well-known as a long-winded person who will never use a few words when many will do, so I have been finding it an interesting experiment for me to use Twitter and text messaging. It has been teaching me at least a few basic lessons in the art of brevity.

So, are you a "woofer" who uses lots of words, or a "tweeter" who uses few? :-)
