Do you Tweet?

So about two weeks ago, in my ongoing role of Susan Mallery cheerleader, I joined Twitter.  I figured, other cheerleaders were tweeting about her and her books, maybe I should, too.

I still don't understand the whole thing.

I mean, I blog, I facebook, I speak to people face to face.  Why do we need Twitter?  It seems to me like it is just another way to draw attention to yourself when you are doing essentially nothing.  Most people's "tweets" are just a bunch of blathering nonsense that leave me thinking "Why did anyone need to know that?"

I truly am getting old.  I suppose some people find it cool when they can say how many people are following them on Twitter but as for me, it's just one more thing for my already crazy-filled brain to have to keep up with.

And as for tweeting about my cheerleading duties?  It only helps when you actually HAVE people following you...otherwise you're just tweeting to dead space.  

I guess those first few tweets of mine were just practice...

I've been on Twitter for a while, I mostly just use it to tweet blog posts and sometimes stuff I get in my email.

I hate twitter, though I do have an account. I haven't even logged on in a while. Some contests and blog reviews I do require me to tweet something...that's the only reason I set it up in the first place.
