tweet tweet

just when i was beginning to get excited at the prospect of starting a twitter account, the "no" votes on the poll started to take the lead.  as i am writing this, they are tied at 7.

thanks to all of you who have voted. 

i think there is still a day left to vote so please keep voting.  i appreciate your advice, and i have a burning curiosity as to where people stand on certain, let's call them issues...

but i have a confession to make... i already started an account.  it happened last night.  i was doing some research for this post before i fell into a comatose-like sleep... i wanted to pull up some of the twitter accounts that i occasionally follow:
overheard newsroom
douglas coupland
whitegrlproblems
shitmydadsays (i wish this never became a book or a show, can you say too much of a good thing?)

while searching around i found a couple other funny accounts... so i thought, well heck, i don't want to have to do this searching every time, so i created an account and hit "follow" . . . then it suggested all kinds of accounts i might want to follow, including: blogto, cbc, cp24.  now i can have two of my favourite things [funnies and news], right at the tip of my fingers.

i don't know if i will produce anything funny or interesting in 140 characters or less.  but i've been known to have a good one-liner here and there... so i'll let you know if anything comes tweeting out of my mouth.  for now the account is being used simply to follow other people.

tweeter?

have to admit it was i who ties the no votes at 7. i don't really think my vote should be counted as mia and i started twitter accounts last year and really just never got the hang of them. also we never really followed anyone but the hostel....so i reverse my no to a yes because i think you will know better what to do and get a lot more out of it.

our accounts were oranginafajita and litchen (i think that was hers).

so tweet tweet away,
