I’m All a-Twitter (Yes, That’s Horribly Cliche. Sue me.)

In my shameless efforts to stay hip and current, I thought I’d let you all know I’ve joined Twitter. I’ve also joined Facebook. As I said when I joined Myspace, this probably marks the moment when both of these things become officially un-hip. Which, of course, has been an un-hip way to describe un-hip things for about two decades now.

So the truth is, I’m not that hip. But for those of you where are, here’s the scoop…

Here’s my Twitter feed, for those of you who do that sort of thing.

Here’s my public Facebook link.

I have to say, I’m liking Facebook a lot more than Myspace. Facebook seems more “adult.” (Read: mature, not racy). And I’ve re-met a ton of old friends, which has been cool. They seem to pop out of nowhere.

I stuck my Twitter feed right here on the blog sidebar, which I have to tell you is just too cool for words. It seems to be working with every platform/browser…except Internet Explorer for Windows. Which I worried about for a while. And then thought, why is anybody even using that anymore?

So, apologies to those of you who do. Why not try Firefox? Or even Safari?

In fact, if you’re a Windows user, I’d love for you to open up the blog in Safari…it’s the only Windoze browser that actually renders the pages the way they’re supposed to be. (Firefox gets it mostly)
