So, I just joined Twitter - I know, I know, I'm the last person on the planet to get on this bandwagon. Welcome to 2006, Rachel! But since blogs and Facebook suck up enough of my time, I figured I didn't need yet another distraction. And also, who cares what I have to say? Anyway, the girls at Sunday's blogging brunch kept talking it up, and curiosity got the best of me.
Problem is, I'm pretty clueless with this Twitter thing - somebody help me! What's all this # business? How do I respond to someone? Retweet? HUH? Is there a handbook somewhere to help an old lady out?
Also, I just did a search for some of my favorite bloggers and followed them. Is that cool...or stalkerish? How does that all work? I followed @BryanVoltaggio and @RichardBlais, too. That might be stalkerish. I don't know the etiquette for this thing. Who else should I be following?
Still trying to figure out what the fascination is with Twitter, but I'll give it a whirl. How is it different than a Facebook status update? If it ends up being a huge time suck and I'm just tweeting into space (how do people get 10,000 followers anyway?), I'm out. But for now...@FunnelcloudRach
