I join the 21st Century

So I finally got a twitter account.

Me: (to the kid): Look.  If you had Twitter, you could follow Anne Lamott!

The Kid: (Snorting derisively): Like I need more ways to waste time!

It's sad when your 14 year old is more mature than you are.

(Here is what the kid is doing instead of twittering her time away!)

Really good talent in those cartoons. I wonder how the two-faced cat would get along with Hemingway's six-toed cats?

I had to get a Twitter account when I wrote an article for Scientific American. Social media are the worst time sinks. The good point is that after about a month on FB, LJ, TW, WhatHaveYou, the novelty palls and you sort of drop them like old toys.

Twitter's a very cool toy right now though!

dorki, thanks! She works hard on it. She read about the janus cat mutation about a year ago and has been working up the story since. She's done piles of research.
