Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Janie, I keep closing down more and more of Facebook. But in a leap of technological optimism, I signed up for Twitter. I don't know anyone who does it, but I know that the Diane Rehm show uses it, so I set up to "watch" there. And while I was at it, I looked around and another NPR personality has an account. So I set that up to "watch" as well--and this morning I found that person is watching back! Now what on earth could I say that this person would find interesting? "I just washed my car" or "My son missed the school bus so I had to drive him over and he was soaking wet" or other mundane stuff.

It really is bizarre.

John In Kansas started a thread (there is only the one post and it's well down the page) about how to quit various online site, in case you're interested. He posted a link from one of the journals--PC Magazine or CNet, one of those. I just glanced at it but I did trace it to find again later. In case I want to quit Tweeting. :)

MOM wants to tweet, though. She's been tweeting non-stop to try to reach Rap's cel phone, but he's in Ireland. I think he left his phone on and plugged in at his house, so when he gets home he's going to find about 275 text messages tweeted by MOM to his "device."
