Okay, so I just signed on to twitter. Now what? To search for friends who may be on twitter, they use my address book. Nobody in my address book is on twitter, but a bunch of stars and news services are. I checked two news services and one charity. Couldn't care less about the stars.

I tried a few things, and I've figured out, I think, that unless you are in my address book, or unless you give me your tweet username, I can't find you.

I posted two tweets ( ? ). I guess I'll wait and see if anyone sends me anything.

My username is (I think)
Please note the " e " between the l and i is necessary to the address!
But, then, all you have to do is click on, don't you? Oh I am so lame!

You can search in Twitter. A couple of nights ago I saw that one of the top current searches was "Mosavi". When I clicked on it, I was seeing lots of messages obviously in Iranian (or is it Farsi?). It looked as though I was right in the middle of what the protesters were discussing.

I follow a couple of newspapers; you get to see headlines fairly quickly and can check out the ones you want to know more about. Oh, and public broadcasting stations likewise.

The way peoples blogrolls can lead you to blogs you want to read, other peoples list of who they follow can lead you to twitter members you want to follow.

Wow, cool. Thank you, Dean! Now if I can just get this move completed I can go play - tweet, that is.
