It’s a little hard even for me to get my head around it, but I’m now officially on Twitter, I guess. At least I think I am. It’s difficult to be sure since I don’t know what I’m doing!
For me, it all started innocently enough, more or less, back in October of 2005, when Paul Amundson of INFORM called and said something like, "I think the Dullum File needs a blog." To which I, of course, replied, "What the hell is a blog?"
Blogging has gone pretty well and, for the most part, reader comments have been civil. In the past year or so we’ve added Dullum File video clips.
Then awhile ago, engineer Mike Aguillar said, "You should be on Facebook." Positive, upbeat person that I am, I said, "I don’t think so." But following the lives of friends (some of them long lost) and perfect strangers has been a hoot.
Now comes Twitter. I’ve actually known about Twitter for over a year. I’ve been following a comedy writer by the name chumworth that long. He writes for David Letterman and others. His "tweets" about his family and job (mostly) are great.
Mine will be infrequent at first. Again, because I don’t know what I’m doing. Also, I read somewhere that sixty per cent of the people who start twittering drop it after a month.
I’m not sure I’m up for this, but here we go again. Follow me on Twitter.
