The tweet life

twitter-hashclouds Okay parents, if you don't have a Twitter account yet, you need to get one immediately. For those unfamiliar, Twitter is, more or less, a 140-character blog that you update on a daily/hourly basis. It's blogging with a much shorter time commitment. You can follow friends, family, complete strangers, your favorite blogger, Joe the Plumber, the Times , even Time Out Kids --the list is endless. I know what you're thinking: "Huh? How is this fun? I don't get it." I know! I thought the same thing. And then as people started following me and I started following others, "tweets" became more meaningful and I realized it's a really fun (and easy) way to stay updated on the things and people you care about. It's getting big and you need to get on board! If my feeble attempts at a pitch haven't sold you, these tweets might. They are from parents all over the country and will make you LOL. Read, laugh, commiserate, then get on Twitter--STAT.
