Despite writing two blogs, managing three Facebook pages, posting occasional youtube videos and updating my Flickr account with a steady stream of photos, I had always avoided the dreaded Twitter. I had no idea how to use it, why I’d want to use it, and no inclination to ever use it. . . . until this weekend. Spurred on by my inability to understand what the heck happened in the Twitter-related incidents that have been reported of late (yes, I’m referring to the situation surrounding a certain Rep. Weiner), I finally decided that I needed to learn about Twitter.
And guess what, it’s actually really fun! I just subscribed to about 30 new Twitter feeds, and the best part about it is that I can go highbrow (the Economist and the World Economic Forum feeds) to lowbrow (TMZ and Perez Hilton), all in one little application. I’m still in awe of people who can maintain posts on their own Twitter accounts, but at least I’m dipping my toe in the Twitter pool.
That leads me to a request to all of my readers: I want to hear from you! May I please follow you on Twitter? Post your Twitter handles in the comments below, and I promise I’ll subscribe! Also, if you have any pet-related Twitter feeds that you think are particularly fun, feel free to suggest them. I’m a Twitter newbie. I need all the help I can get.
