Joining the 21st century

Longhorn sm

The miracle has happened, and I am finally on Twitter. If you’d like to follow along, I’m @oregonex. Fair warning: While I try to tamp down my political and other contentious personal opinions on this blog, my Twitter account is going to be fair game. I wanted an outlet for snark, sarcasm, and probably inappropriate humor, so be prepared. It’s also going to be my dumping ground for little bits of news that I come across in my daily trawling, but don’t feel inspired to write an entire blog post around. (Ratio of little bits to actual posts = approx. 89:1.)

Anyway, I’m still feeling my way around this social media thing, so bear with me as I work on getting the training wheels off.

    Clearly the apocalypse is at hand. Next you’ll be telling us to hit you up on Facebook. 😉

    Why oh why have you succumbed to that devils spawn called Twitter, you have always struck me as an extremely sensible person lol. No good will come of it, we’re all doomed ( a little homage to Dad’s Army in honour of Clive Dunn ). 🙂

    Hey ! How did I get that funny little picture next to my name?? Has it always been there? Kind of cute in a weird ectoplasmy sort of way.

      Actually I think the devil’s spawn is Facebook, isn’t it? And unless you have your own WordPress avatar or Gravatar, you get assigned a little monster automatically. I hadn’t thought of them as ectoplasmic, but — great word choice.

    You’ve got me intrigued.

    “Ratio of little bits to actual posts = approx. 89:1“

    I wonder if this is so obvious that everyone knows but me, if you did that estimation based on your own personal data, if it is a variation of the 90-9-1 rule about participation inequality, if you asked Nate Silver to build a prediction model for you… 🙂
