So give me an extra hour to sleep in Sunday morning and what do I do? -- I get up at the designated time my pre-programmed brain wakes me at 5:30am except in this case it was an hour earlier. After making the coffee, placing 2 slices or Organic whole-grain live sprout bread in the toaster and powering up the pc, I prepare to do what every reasonable agent does at this time in the morning, I BLOG. Noticing that AR allows me to "Announce new blog posts on your Twitter feed," my inquiring mind wants to know what is this wonderful thing called TWITTER? First, I look up the word 'twit' -- yep, I did (and for those of you who know me you're shaking your head in agreement) I come to find out that 'to twit' means "to taunt, tease, ridicule, etc., with reference to anything embarrassing; gibe at." YIKES! Me? A Twitter?? NO WAY! I am NOT an annoying idiot -- most people think I'm normal actually. But just out of curiosity I'll try it out and determine if this is useful or a complete waste of my time. Twitter claims, "it provides basic updates which are meaningful to family members, friends, or colleagues-especially when they're timely." Unfortunately, this is of little use to me unless I know of these "timely updates" via a text message. Otherwise, does an agent really have time to sit in front of a pc all day to get these updates? For all of you twitterers out there please tell me who do I twit, how do I twit and where do I twit? Do I twit on my pc, twit from my cell phone, twit in text messages... WHAT? Are there twitter police that will twitter-cize my twit? And why do I get just one question? "What Are You Doing?" Huh? What if it's something personal? And what is the twitter-quette? If I block someone did I hurt their twitter feelings? Because that is not what I ever want to do. You'll either find Twitter to be tweet and twitterrific or completely terrible -- but give it it try because you don't have to be a member to follow people. Now, that's a litlle umm.. twitterfying!
Twitter-less in Lancaster, PA.
Update: I no longer twit so please don't send me invites. t/y
