…and they call it “Twitter”!

I just discovered Twitter.

More specifically, I just discovered that I love Twitter.

I had created a Twitter account or two in years past, but I didn’t know anyone who Tweeted and I didn’t really see the point. It felt like Facebook without any friends/stalkees… snore.

Until I realized that not only can you use Twitter to stalk the people you know… you can stalk the people you only WISH you knew! Like Charlie Sheen! That’s right. I’m following Charlie Sheen, or (as I prefer to think of it) I’m Twitter-friends with Charlie Sheen.

The whole Twitter/tweet thing just didn’t make sense; it didn’t seem self-explanatory like Facebook or Google. Like, what the heck is a re-tweet? And why would you want to do it? And why are there pound signs next to random words at the end of every status update? I mean.. tweet. And what is the past-tense form of the word “tweet”? Twat?? THAT SEEMS INAPPROPRIATE.

So I Googled it, learned a couple of tips and tricks, and now look at me… I’m following Charlie Sheen. And I just tweeted, not twat, about American Idol.

If you would like to follow me, which I highly recommend, I am aka @amieandco. I will try not to tweet too often about my cats. Though I will make no such promise about American Idol. That stuff is serious.
