It's 4AM and I am entering the Twitter world......

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.


  1. Welcome to Twitter! I still haven't completely taken advantage of everything that Twitter has to offer, but the more I push myself to use it, the more helpful I find it professionally.

  2. WELCOME TO THE TWITTER SPHERE! I have to same issue of not having engaged in actual dialogue on social media yet. I used to love the 140 character limit but somewhere along the way I forgot that people don't just want updates they want conversation.

    I look forward to seeing how you use twitter and start dialogues so that I can mimic you!
