I’m on Twitter!

March 23, 2009 | By | Comments (5)

I’ve tittered, tottered, and often been tattered, but never before have I Twittered! Until today. My first tweets are up on twitter.com, a site whose function I have yet to fully understand, but people insist is essential to meaningful interpersonal communication. Kinda like beer.

The only question Twitter asks is, “What are you doing?” Then you’re supposed to tell the world, expecting of course that the entire world puts itself on hold until it receives your latest mote of intelligence, which must not exceed 140 characters in length. Hey, maybe Einstein can stun the world with something succinct like “E=mc2″, but my brilliant observations cannot be thus abbreviated, lest their profound meaning be obscured.

Do you people really want to know what I’m doing all day? Some of it will be interesting, some of it will be boring, and some of it will be downright disgusting.

But hey, I know some of you already Twitter, so if you want to take a chance, look for random thoughts from the Grumpy Gardener.

Are you Twittering with excitement?

    YES! I’ve arrived. @grumpy_gardener is following me on Twitter @GWConfidence Yeah, baby!
    Who knew, there would be ANOTHER Grumpy Gardener. I started the nasty rumor you were @GrumpyGardener – sorry for that. I corrected it to be @grumpy_gardener. After I fixed my mistake, I sent out a shout out.
    Some how, I don’t think Katie will follow you;~} Keep us posted on that.
    P.S. I wonder how many followers the other @GrumpyGardener generated with my shout out!

    Gimme a break here. I just started tweeting today, I don’t know how it works or why I should do it, so I guess I should be running AIG instead.
