  1. I should be following. I was able to follow by clicking to tweet this post. Maybe that will help others. Anyway, I’m not good with twitter either, but I’m game.

  2. It will feel horribly weird for a while, then it will feel like you’re talking to yourself. It gets easier. I’m a little concerned that your kids are saying it’s for old folks … why are we learning this then? Only half kidding.

    Do yourself a favor and start by following a few favorite celebrities to get a feel for what a good tweet even is … I like Neil deGrasse Tyson ‏@neiltyson & Roger Ebert @ebertchicago for example.

    I think most people are doing it wrong … especially folks who came to it thinking of it as a way to build platform (like me.) It’s impossible to keep up with the number of people that a good platform would demand.The problem, as I see it, is that folks are too busy trying to get followers and get their links passed around. I don’t want it to be about pimping everyone’s links, but rather a place to catch bits of wit and snippits of cool stuff.

    I’ll be curious to know what you think after you mess with it for a while. And yes, the ID is the @ sign, followed by the twitter handle the person chose. In my case: @RRudeParanormalist in your case @VampireMaman

    • Thanks Renae. It will take a while (time restraints). I’ve just forwarded a few links – but like you said, I don’t want to just pimp and throw stuff out there. Thanks for the suggestion of following Neil deGrasse Tyson and Roger Ebert. I did find a few interesting twitter people with common interests. A friend of mind has had several celebrities tweet him back. Of course he is exceptionally funny and I’m sure they’re following him now. I’ll keep you posted on what happens and follow your twitters!
