I Think I Have a Stalker

Seriously, doesn't this guy have better things to do than reading my Twitter Tweets?

For those of you in the know about Twitter, I relented to peer pressure and have been trying to figure out how the dang thing works. If you want to follow me on Twitter, my screen name is Shamalamamama... all one word.

That's hysterical! (even though I am not a twitter-ite!)

yeah. I don't get twitter either. KPBS is the only twitterer to actually use the system for anything relevant-- they tweeted through the wildfires, which meant that folks only on cell phones could receive up-to-date information via SMS feeds, but other than that. useless. a novelty, nothing more.

Actually, some American guy who was arrested somewhere in the middle east twittered his way to freedom, but I don't understand why he just couldn't have left a voicemail with a trusted friend to get the American Embassy to negoitate his release

I think the novelty is the point. Its not a chat room as far as I can tell. Its just a way to share the minutia in your life. Stuff your mom would love to hear about.

Hey Mom! Wanna sign up?

I heard that that guy was hiding his phone when he sent out the twitter message that just said "arrested" and his friends knew how bad that would be. I suppose he could have texted, though, but a voice mail would have been right out.

Ok, I bent to pressure and signed up but I still don't know how to work it. I'm under Snowbird2

Wow,Snowbird, good for you -- I'm all for novelty, but was too intimidated to try! :-/
