GoGo Gadget: Conformity!

A random act of events occurred in the last 12 hours which ultimately ended in my submission to the internet's newest fad, twitter. I don't feel tooooo hypocritical here because I don't think I ever bashed it outright. But I do admit I thought it was a bit crazy in the beginning.

The act of events went as follows: As I was making dinner I was listening to my favorite podcast[Penny Arcade] as our heroes discussed Gabe's obsession with being a techy slut and jumping on the Twitter bandwagon as soon as possible, WTMJ4 ran a special on Twitter in big business, and the final step was yesterdays episode of South Park. Kanye West has had a history of quickly responding to media via twitter. I was curious about what he thought of last night's South Park where he was bent over and made their bitch, or gay fish, rather. My answer? Sign up for twitter and find out. Sadly, further research shows that Kanye's account was fake and response to Colbert therefore meaningless.

Bottom line, if anyone wants to tool it up with me, join up. I linked my twitter account to my facebook status though, so odds are following my twitter would be redundant.

Thank you, that is all.

Not that I really feel it necessary to defend myself ;-) But to get down to the real reason I was submitted is that the TMJ4 article is right. It is another form of social networking, just like signing up for my favorite websites and people's RSS Feeds, I can follow their twitters to keep up to date on whats happening in the world. So there! (/me runs into room and crys)

I will stand strong and resist the urge to join the twitter cult! Mainly because most of my friends are twitter whores and I could care less about how my friend just ordered food at Dennys... oh now he got the food.. now he's eating it and it tastes good... now he is finished... now he's wondering how much to tip because the waitress was totally hitting on him... now he is depressed because he didn't get a number.. now he's driving home.. now he's-- I'll stop.

Assailant9: Haha, Yes I agree, I think I will use this more to follow Penny Arcade and my buddies Vince Vitrano and Susan Kim: Milwaukee's, if not America's, best news anchors.

Greg: The truth comes out.

I will go down as a hypocritical slut on this subject. I bashed to outright... but I will probably start 'twittering' when I get my iPhone in July...

Yeah Greg... sorry, It just seems to be the new facebook... 24/7 updates...

Oh and Blaze... you can hook up your twitter account and vice versa.

I'll join you in 3 months.

... I'm fucking dyslexic... you can hook up your twitter account to your facebook updates and vice versa.
