I'm A Twit Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Fail Whale

Those birds caught a whale. Greenpeace is going to be pissed!

Ok, so when I first heard of Twitter I thought it was the most idiot thing to come down the pop culture pike since American Idol. In fact, I signed up there solely to make fun of the whole idea of Twitter. I would twit messages like "I am updating my Twitter account," or "Twitter...When you absolutely, positively MUST tell people you've never met that you'll be at Bennigan's on Tuesday night."

Then I actually started taking the idea of Twitter seriously. Before I know it, I was a twitterer...er. Now, I'm checking in a couple of times a day to let the masses know what I'm up to. I'm twittering from my cell phone while at work, or while watching tv, or while at Barnes and Noble. Yesterday, I was twittering my observations of the latest episode of 24 while sitting in front of my TV.

Make no mistake, I am just as disgusted with myself as you all are. Yet, I have to admit that Twitter has become my crack (which, I guess is a whole lot better than crack being my crack). For what it's worth, it's pretty fun to type silly, random observations a handful of times during the day.

One thing is certain, though. I will NEVER be "down" with Facebook
