(Hey, I'm not afraid to admit I want traffic. I think this blog should be required reading, especially for the Mensa type crowd. After all, as intelligent as they may be, I think this place would provide them some satisfaction in their superior intelligence. They could thank their lucky stars that they're not as stupid as me.)
So this means I'm a twit, in more ways than one. But I'm kind of getting into this whole Twitter thing.
One thing that disturbs me though is the ominous message across the top of my Twitter home page that reads:
Psst... the new version of Twitter is here. Try it now!
Well, psst.... the old version is new to me. Like any other old decrepit geezer I harbor a deep resistance to change. It's human nature, especially the older you get to be, to fear change. When I was younger, not so much fear. I boldly embraced moving on from 8-track tapes to cassettes. I then even moved on from them to CD's. I moved on from leisure suits as well with little to no mental scarring as well. Tidy whities were replaced with boxers.
(I'm still mulling that choice as a not particularly wise one though. I had a pair of boxers which were a little on the short side once and any type of "excitement" allowed a peekage event to occur. You know, kind of like a Jack-In-The-Box scenario. You get "Jack" wound up enough even he's going to pop out on you.
That probably isn't one of my prouder revelations shared here. But I take solace in the fact that there'll be others as mind numbing as that one displayed in the future.)
Anyway, back to Twitter.
So I stare at this message and recall when "new Twitter" was a trending topic. Most of the comments were unflattering. (See, even an old decrepit geezer like me investigates, and in this case to see my fear may not be unfounded.) So I haven't hit that "Try it now!" button. But I know one day I'm going to log in to Twitter and the new version is going to be the only version. I guess I'll muddle through some how.
But back to what I like about Twitter is the blogs I've found, and liked, and either added to my follower list or blogroll. This has been a great source for finding great blogs to read. I've got to tell you there are some talented and seriously funny people there. I aspire to be like them.
I don't have a huge following as of yet. I guess people haven't embraced following a stupid and needy persona, such as mine, to date. But I'm hopeful.
