Ellipses Are Magical…

One day I was asked as to why I use ellipses so much when use social media (gchat, twitter, facebook, google+, blog posts, and so forth).  It is something that started when AIM was the fancy, shiny new toy in the toy box.  I ended every statement with a simple “…”  I still end each of my blog post titles with them.

Maybe it drives/drove people crazy…  I have seen some people adopt it over time…  I like using ellipses…  They have multiple roles…  It could mean that I have more to say…  It could mean that my thoughts have trailed off…  It could mean that I walked away…  It is something that has just stuck with me over time…  Twelve years later, ellipses are still here with me and probably will always be…
