I caved in and joined Twitter.
I can't say it's a proud moment, but I do see the potential for greatness as I am "following" news organizations like NY Times. I can get super-fast news, well, super fast.
I have 2 "followers" already, and it hasn't been 24 hours. Granted one of them is a community that is seeking members who are like-mindedly interested in health, science, and technology news, and the other is Books-A-Million trying to get me to buy stuff, but they're still there. "Following" me.
That's actually kinda creepy.
