Twitterdee, Twitterdum

November 26th, 2010  |  7 Comments

I finally did the unthinkable. I joined Twitter. This, after some prodding from you guys, and a word of encouragement from Elizabeth at Guilty Kitchen. I’ve been dragging my feet because I don’t really get how it works, nor do I understand the subculture that’s simmered up over there. Nevertheless, it’s Thanksgiving month, and since I’ve been lulled into a sense of security by an overabundance of carbs, I figured now’s as good a time as any.

So, consider me a member of modern times, and follow me over there. You can only begin to imagine all the can’t-miss snippets that we’ll conjure up in 140 characters or less.

If you have any tips on how to make the most of Twitter, then do share. In any case, I hope to see you there. I’ve added a button on my side bar, or you can click THIS BIG TWITTER-TRAVELING TEXT.

And I do hope you and your families have had a great, satisfying, gut-busting Thanksgiving. I can barely move an overstuffed muscle. Only my tweeting thumbs.

    Hi Irina, I find Tweetdeck really handy. It’s an application where you can see the timeline of the people you follow, and the tweets that mention you, and the direct messages you get. It comes handy too if you’re using facebook as well. You can do crossposting (meaning one post can be posted to different accounts).
    Hope to hear more often from you on twitter :).
    Btw: tweetdeck comes in mobile apps as well, so you can post some pics easily.

    Hehe…I think I understand what you mean. It all seems so simple, yet I feel old and confuzzled when I want to do something really simple >.<

    Bakinggeek — Thanks for the tip about Tweetdeck. I’m looking into it now. Sounds like it can save valuable time, and I need every spare second I can get. And hope to see you over there!

    Zo — I’m completely lost over there. I know it’s only 140 characters, but you’ve got the hash tag and the @ tag and short links and retweets, and it’s all so confusing. I’m thinking if I spend enough time over there, I’ll get it.

  4. Your post seems to give me a kick to join Twitter too. Sounds simple and yet I, as you, are dragging my feet. Maybe I will jump start Facebook first…

    Keep in touch :-) (Who knows maybe someday in Twitter :-))

    Bake In Paris — Well, if you join, we can both try and figure it out together :)

  6. Congrats :). I’m holding out still but we’ll see how long that lasts. I simply know I’d get sooo addicted 8).

    Xiaolu — I’m trying to make myself get addicted but I still don’t see the appeal. Maybe in a few weeks I’ll get hooked. I’m told I need more of a group in there, and then it’ll get more fun.
