I am having an adverse reaction to yesterday's flu shot and can't sleep so why not be up and work on mission #2 of the Math Twitter Blogsphere. The focus of this week's mission is Twitter so the ever helpful Rabbi Pittinsky helped me set up a Twitter account. As someone who doesn't have a Facebook account it took quite a bit of reading and explanations ( from various people) for me to understand what this whole Twitter thing is. I am not an expert now by any means but I think I am getting the hang of it. And I am liking it!
I played around with it this morning and was shocked to see that I have ten followers and even an offer from a close colleague to join a book club. Who knew?... Luckily I checked or I might have insulted people or at least look like I have no idea how to read a twitter feed. ......which technically before ten monutes ago i didn't. I have not yet had an on going 140 character dialogue but I can see the beauty of this social media. The quick shout outs and instant connections to those people you want to converse with is really cool. I will have to figure out how to add this all to an all ready busy day but I gather it will be worth it.
