Lurker Exposed 2: Giving Twitter a shot

Despite my rant, I'm giving Twitter a shot, due to peer pressure and sketchy coercion from a man with ties to the intelligence community.

My thinking:

  • Don't knock it till you've tried it (though that generally doesn't stop me)
  • Who's kidding? When it comes to blog hits, I'll prostitute myself as much as the next person.
  • Since I am genuinely interested in others' status, it should be more efficient than being a lurker.
  • Dopamine rushes and other biochemical reactions aren't a bad thing
Fear not, non-tweeters (especially those for whom the rant may have resonated) !

I am only visiting the dark side, and will fight assimilation.

Give in to the power of the dark side.

Also, you can set your blog up so new posts get tweeted! Go to and set up an account to read your blog feed, and it will post your new blog posts to twitter every 6 hours or so.

Just embrace it. It is the way.
