Twitter, Twitter, Tweet, Tweet, Tweet!

Okay, how many of you out there have heard of this whole Twitter thing?

And how many of you, when you first heard about it, thought to yourself, "No, no, no, no! I'm not getting sucked into another reason to spend way too much time on the computer...blogging has already taken over my life!!"

I'm telling you, that was exactly what I said the first time I heard about it. And when I began to not even find the time to keep up with the blog, I definitely wasn't interested...until......

I actually had a few minutes this week to catch up on reading some of my favorite blogs and discovered that quite a few of my bloggy friends were Twittering. So, I clicked on their Follow Me on Twitter buttons, and low and behold...I'm Twittering too! It's like express blogging. In just a matter of seconds, I was able to catch up with some of my long lost bloggy buddies and catch them up with me as well. It's TURBO blogging baby!!!

And you know what makes it even better? I can Twitter from my cell phone!!! Now, I have a SmartPhone with real web browsing, so I don't have to worry about text message charges, but those of you with unlimited texting can Twitter from your cell phones for free too! I love my phone, and I love that I can go and read all my favorite blogs on it, but unless the blog is on a Typepad account, I can't leave comments from my phone--a mystery that still has me stumped--so you all never know that I was there at all! But I can not only read all my friend's "Tweets" on my phone, I can "Tweet" myself!!

It's really a lot of fun, and believe it or not has not taken over every waking minute of my day. I've caught up with a lot of my old blogging friends that I haven't "talked" to in weeks all in just a few minutes!

So, I said all that to say this, (one of my favorite Keith Lamb quotes!) come follow me on Twitter! You can follow even if you don't Twitter yourself, but if you do Twitter, be sure and let me know so I can follow you too!!!

I have totally not "gotten" this. From what you are saying, it sounds like the Star Trek Borg mantra. . . "Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated."
