Twitter: So Not Gay

andyeinstein Just bought Wall E on Blu Ray. Can't wait to see the 1080 goodness. from web

If you were a member of Twitter, and more importantly one of my followers on Twitter, you would have just received that message.

But, Andy, what is Twitter? It must be pretty awesome if you are involved in it.
You are correct. It is awesome. Twitter is a micro-blogging
service that allows users to send and read other users' updates which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. Updates can be found on a user's profile page, sent to your mobile phone via text message, or through an application like Twitteriffic which can be downloaded to your computer via something called the Internet. The primary purpose of each twitter update is to answer the question: What are you doing?

Let's observe what some of my fellow twitter users are up to right now:

lilypants hold theeeeese nuuuuuuts
ginatufano showing off my clean (still) inbox...yup it is.
yngwii 非常讨厌深圳这个鬼地方!
spaulds1 Correction: Tar Heels playing in Chapel Hill....unfortunately I am in Charlotte.......... :(

Now you get it. If you were friends with any of these people you would be endlessly intrigued by the information above.

But, Andy, aren't these updates kind of pointless and...well, isn't twitter kind of gay?

That is a very immature attitude! Twitter is neither gay nor ghey. Did you even read yngwii's post above? Listen, the point of this blog entry is thus: Go to, sign up, become my follower.
