It’s official, I’m a twit
Or a tweep. Or whatever the hell you call people on Twitter. Yes, I have given up my resistance and joined.
Why? Not because I feel like I’m all that fascinating. Not because I want to announce how extra crunchy and wonderful my morning cereal was, or some such crap like that. For one thing, I have a lot of friends on there and I’d like to follow them. I’ve been doing that anyway, but it will be much easier now that I’m a member. And for another, I thought it would be a good idea to tweet about my upcoming book as things progress.
So, I have lots and lots to learn. Hashtags, retweets, posting to and connecting with others. I’m following 15 friends so far and want to find many more. Also Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon, ’cause I like them. I just posted my first tweet. I have tried twice to post a profile picture — I made sure it was the correct size and all. I tried two different photos. Both ended up with my head partially cut off. Oh well, I’ll figure it out later.
I am @EricaScottOTK on there. EricaScott was already taken and I didn’t want to be EricaScott5 as they suggested. Five what? Stupid. Anyway, I figured out how to put a Follow Me whatchamacallit on my blog page — it’s at the top of the right column. Please, if you would like me to follow you, just let me know your name there.
I will probably get ridiculously addicted to this, unless I can’t figure it out and then I will be intensely frustrated. But I do promise I will not post inanity. If I’m not talking book or video stuff, I will probably do what I do best and post mini-rants. Perhaps I’ll rant about how stupid it is to try saying anything significant in 140 characters.
Anyway. Do follow me, will ya? Don’t leave me floating around there feeling like a lonely bird.
Speaking of the book — as promised, I did not go overboard and other than five minor changes, I left it alone. The interior has been resubmitted, so it’s now back in their hands!
