I had heard of Twitter quite a while ago when the people at RBJ began tweeting--I think that's the verb--with each other. I resisted. I swore that I have enough sites to my name at places like Blogger, Hotmail, Aim, LiveJournal, Flickr, MySpace, etc. I figure that it was enough. I even have a Jaiku account which is I think similar to Twitter, so I thought, "Why bother?"

Well, it seems that everyone on TV is talking about Twitter. It's like the Facebook for 2009. So what did I do the other day? I registered.

Unfortunately.... Someone already is using my screen name. I mean seriously, my name is so unique--riceball man--why would anyone want to use it? Worse, I don't think this person is using it because s/he has no updates, no followings, no followers. What's up with that?

Anyway, I don't know when I'll be tweeting, but I've come to the conclusion this is a good way to maintain a presence/relationship with former students, provided they have a Tweeter account. So if you do and you want to keep in touch, follow me and I'll follow you back.
