Twitter twitter

Okay, this is a quick one though I did have dinner at my daughter's new digs last night and yes, I took photos so I'll be back to post about that later.

In the meantime...help me. I recently joined Twitter, started adding friends and people I wish were my friends (ha), and have absolutely no clue how to interact there. So I'm guessing if any of you twitter and add me to your list, then maybe I won't be talking to an empty black hole?



You can find me over there under my real name...and yes, my real name is Robin Slick, but for some reason I had to use RobinSlick as my actual user name.

Help a girl out, please. If anyone can give me a further tutorial as to how the hell it works, I would greatly appreciate it.

I did figure out how to put the widget on my blog, though...you can't miss it. But it's not a cool widget like I've seen on other blogs...it just lists my comments. I guess I need to switch to the new blogger template? Arghh...I wanted to do that, but I'm afraid I'll end up deleting the entire contents of this blog.

But it figures. I finally master MySpace, then everyone flees to Facebook. I sign up for Facebook and find it even a worse disaster than MySpace - people are poking me, sending me good karma, flowers...wtf? I go to Facebook and start to worry I have ADD because I so, so totally cannot follow what's happening there. So then I see everyone is now twittering and I think to myself, Wow, it's just blurbs. How hard can that be?

Erm...apparently when you are technology challenged...difficult as hell.

Help!

Later,
xo

Twitter is for sending people who are in your Twitter neighborhood, 160-character updates about yourself at any time... these are called "Tweets." Cute, eh? You can even tell Twitter to send certain people's Tweets directly to your cell phone as a text message. Or vice-versa.

I couldn't find you on Twitter (I searched for RobinSlick)... Hmm... look me up as MightyBoognish.

Twitter On!

i agree, although i am digging facebook right now. I signed up for twitter a month ago-couldn't figure it out, and haven't touched it since. I'll go have a look...seeing how it's -11 degrees outside and I'm not going anywhere.
