Lead Me on Twitter

Jerry Seinfeld had a great bit on standing ovations:

“There's always a few people who don't really want to do it. I've seen those people, they're always like [pantomimes sitting, looks glumly left and right], 'Are we doing this now?' [reluctantly stands, slowly applauds].”

That's me with new tech. I'll look around glumly. “Are we doing this? Really?” Then I'll go. I'm the last man standing. The uncool version.

Which is a roundabout way of letting you know I've finally joined Twitter.

When I first heard about Twitter with its 140 characters and dweeby name that recalled “Monty Pythons” skits, I assumed it would go the way of Laser Discs and MySpace. Instead it's thrived, and people keep telling me I should get an account. “If you're going to have a website,” they say, “you need...”

Unfortunately being last means playing catch up, which is what I'm doing now. Twitter calls them followers but to me they're leaders: folks who can show me the way. So if you'd like to be one of my leaders, please follow me on Twitter.

Because apparently we're all doing this.
