I Caved and Created a Twitter Account

I'm not a great fan of this particular service but I guess it is time I get dragged into the new decade before it is over. For those of you who like that particular social medium, I can now be found on Twitter ( No followers looks a bit sad so please help me get rid of that dreaded zero ;) I promise to keep it updated :P I'm afraid I haven't overcome my aversion to Facebook yet. Maybe next year.


  1. Welcome to Twitter! I think the key to enjoying yourself, as with any service, is to find ways that make it useful to _you_. For instance, I find Twitter useful because I follow a great number of people who always post interesting links. This includes people who interact with me, whether I know them online or offline, as well as celebrities, including authors. I find some of my more interesting non-book reading material through Twitter.

  2. @ Fantasynibbles: Hiya, you do pop up just about everywhere on the web, don't you ;)

    @ Ben: In some respects I really am a grumpy old man. It took ten years, a trip to hospital and a lady in Norway to convince me of the value of text messages. In that light, my conversion to Twitter is remarkably quick ;)

  3. Yay! I'll repeat what Ben's first message to me on Twitter was, "One of us! One of us!"
