Big Whoopin' Deal: Twitter

Yeah. Kicking and screaming, today I signed up. I am now a part of the Twitter marketing cattle yard. Call it paranoia, but I have a vague uneasiness about Twitter, like flu shots or that creepy chick at the party who keeps passing me shooters she mixed herself, saying don't be such a baby. Man, this shit keeps up we're going to be communicating to each other like dolphins, a bunch of whirrs and clicks. I hope Twitter will allow me to reach out to those I dig and cherish, if not I'm bailing and dropping the whole deal like a sack full of rabid cats. Let's see. I need to blame somebody for pushing me over the edge and joining this crap. Bardsley. Yeah, that friggin' guy.
