  1. My blog-buddy over at http://www.mysuitcasefulloftricks.com/ has been on me to Twitter, and I'm not sure how it works. I thought you needed a Twitter machine to do this. A Twitter device? Is there a Twitter language? I'm completely in the dark. Let me know what you decide and how to do it if you proceed. Thanks!

  2. I do. At first I didn't get it and felt...silly, I guess. But I have to say I kind of love it. i
    Ike following people who are clever, and it's great to follow local places, events, etc. I always know what's going on with people I'm interested in! No special equipment needed! @sofriedchildren is my handle, find me if you sign up! i don't know if handle is the right terminology. I kind of feel like a trucker saying that. 10-4, good buddy.

  3. Try it. It's perfect for your razor wit and gift of observation. Seriously. Do it. Go ahead. Don't be scared.

  4. It is against the law in China so I have no knowledge of how to do it or what it is, however you could follow Alec.

  5. I did it for a while then got bored with it.
    Then out of the silence I started getting spam e-mail from it.
    So I killed my account.
    I invented something like it with a blog post that I would sequentially keep my MySpace and then Facebook status. Then as soon as I got a hundred of them I posted it to my blog. I didn't even know Twitter eXisted at that time because it wasn't widely known.

  6. I have to admit I have NO IDEA how to twitter. I look at all those hash tags and at-symbols and I am at a complete loss to what is happening.

  7. I'm @MotakiFirefang on Twitter. The fact that I have a twitter account is sufficient for you to join.
    Go along, now. Chop-chop.

  8. marianne-- I also thought you needed a magical twitter machine, or at least an iPhone........

    kelly-- how do you keep it down to 140 characters? I can't even keep my answering maching message down to two minutes.....

    terry-- you make me blush. I need more friends like you, puffing up my ego and all! thanks for that!!!! (will you be there to buy me new hats when my old ones are way too small now?)

    nola-- ah, alec. something to consider......

    esbboston--so are you saying you are way behind the twitter times or that you invented it and didn't know it? I am so confused (either way, I think you are genius)........

    michael-- the hash tags and at-symbols are very disorienting to me as well. for a Virgo, it should read like this:

    "Virgo twitter: I am brilliant, and so is everyone who reads this. Okay, go buy my book."

    Ah, perfection!!

    taki-- chop-chop. I so love it that you wrote chop-chop.

    best,

  9. Do it. I sort of think it's like writing jokes. It does take awhile to assimilate everything that goes on there; I had my acct for months before I really started having some fun with it. Like texting for bloggers.

When you write a comment, it makes me feel like I won the lottery or at the very least like I ate an ice-cream sundae. (This has nothing to do with the fact that I did just eat an ice-cream sundae.)
