This morning: We now have a Twitter account! I have no clue what I'm doing, but I will persevere. To watch the madness, follow us @LostGirlsDC.
An hour later: Still have no clue what I'm doing, but am starting to like this a little too much.
Later that day: Right, so a few of us had discussed eventually getting a Twitter account, but we always hesitated because none of us really know how to use it (and we are still in our first month, so no big deal). I promised myself that I would do lots of research and ask everyone I know who "microblogs" before signing up LostGirls for an account.
But then, while reading one of my favorite blogs, A Thought for Food, I could no longer wait. I mean, check out that giveaway! Do I want a 13-cup food processor? Um...why would I not want that more than anything on earth? Let's not be silly.
Will understanding hashtags and trending make me a bad person? Will I start tweeting things irrelevant to the content on the LostGirls sites? Will I pause in the middle of conversations with friends and family to tweet something funny I thought of, heard or said? Will I insist on telling you all that when I figured out how to connect Twitter and Facebook I called a friend and sang my excitement to her voicemail?
Anything is possible now, you guys.
