Twitter -- Confusing But Cool

Do you tweet? I do, apparently. This weekend, I finally gave in to my curiosity and set up an account on Twitter. I confess I'm a bit confused about how the whole thing works. I'd heard it referred to as "mini-blogging," and I guess that's true - you're limited to 140-character posts, which I suppose forces one to be succinct and encourages frequent, real-time updates.

I also confess that I was a little freaked out when several people I don't know started "following" (watching my updates) me within a couple hours of setting up my account. But now that I've spent some time reading through others' updates and finding some people to follow myself, I think this Twitter thing is actually pretty cool! Minimal drama, maximum potential for fun. And there are a TON of Etsy peeps out there. Apparently all the cool kids are a step ahead of me... as usual.

So wanna follow me? Find me here. Fair warning - I'm a crazy liberal with a big, bold opinions on all things political, so your run-of-the-mill announcements of new Etsy listings and updates on my daily WAHM life may be interspersed with rantings of the leftist variety. If you're up for it, I'd love to have you along as I venture into this brave new voyeuristic world!
