I haven’t figured out how exactly I’m going to use Twitter for the betterment of my soul, but it already has promising entertainment value. I’m obsessed with reading and responding to Senator John McCain’s “tweets,” and I realize an ironic sense of disappointment every time I log on and find that he has not updated his home page. If only we, John and I, had been twittering during the Presidential campaign, I would have had an inspiring window at which to sit and peer into his daily routine, a trove of personal information I could’ve used as creative projectiles to lob at Sarah Palin (even though she was a pretty wide target). Either way, it’s quite obvious that Obama wouldn’t have won without my satire, so I’m happy to have done my part with or without McCain’s aides texting his one-liners for him.
So, look to your left and you’ll see my Twitter feed. Where there’s an @ symbol, I’m responding to something that person twat about (there’s really no clean way of making “tweet” past tense).
