I had sort of been sniffing around the peripheries of the idea for some time now, but after being goaded mercilessly by a friend today, I finally admitted to being Twitter-curious, held my nose, and jumped from the nest (to mix my metaphors horribly).
So now I have joined both Facebook and Twitter, after publicly swearing that I would never do either. I had no choice. I wasn't wasting nearly enough time on the internet.
It was not a promising start, I have to admit. For starters, I had to shorten my long-time user name, making me suspect that Twitter is racist against long-winded people. But I do have five followers at this point and I follow seven Twitter entities. What's the proper term for a Twitter entity? Twit? Twat?
I'll get the hang of this eventually.
Are you on the Twitter?
