Tweet, Tweet

I've started twittering or tweeting, or (however you want to say it), lately and it's been fun. I am so late to the game though. I just heard about Twitter last month when Erika Badu made the news for tweeting all through labor, which I found extremely over-the-top, but to each his/her own. I don't like Erika Badu, but I have still been meaning to check out her labor tweets... So after hearing about Badu on the news, my friend shows me his tweets and for about a  week, every time he mentions it, all I have to say is,"that is so stoooopid!" But then I tried it.  How do I like it? I think it's safe to say that Tweeting is my crack. (Who knew!?) Turns out tweeting is so popular that the site frequently becomes over-taxed with high volume issues. It makes me wonder  what the next "big thing" on the internet is going to be. I mean, who knew 5, 7 years ago that a site that lets people post silly, seemingly unimportant tidbits about what they're doing would catch the attention of major news networks, politicians and celebrities as well as every day folk. It's something you have to try to fully appreciate. One thing's for sure... it truly helps stave off boredom when out and about. I find that I tweet the most when bored waiting for someone or something - like for certain unnamed individuals to get to the friggin' car. Then there's the endless entertainment aspect of following the likes of John Mayer and Ashton Kutcher on Twitter. I have to say that I've laughed more since I started tweeting than I did before, which can't be a bad thing. I'm in the process of trying to recruit several of my friends and family members so that we can all tweet our little hearts out, but enough about Twitter, it's not like I'm getting paid for this long blogertizment!
