About a week ago, actually last Tuesday- August 4th, I became an uncle for the first time. Riley Mason was born, and as Nate (my bro-in-law) twittered his excitement, I suddenly realized my desire to do the same.
Up until this point, I thought of twitter as a slightly amusing, really kinda stupid technological annoyance that I decided to avoid. While I still hold most of those same feelings, I've realized that to send a twitter every day or two literally takes seconds, and I could spare a few seconds everyday to keep those who may be interested (or pretend to be interested) up to date. And as forgetful as I am, it may help me remember what I was doing yesterday...
So, the point is, I've converted. I'm a daily twitterer. Weird.
My recent tweets are on the left side over there <-- and there's a link to follow me if you care to. We'll see how long this lasts.
