I admit, most of the reason I signed up for twitter is because Stephen Fry is on, and I thought, what the hey. If I don’t like it, I can always remove myself from the august peerage of the Twitting hoi polloi.
Hmm. A thought just occurred to me – are people who use Twitter Twitterers, or would it be a better phrase, a mot juste, to simply call them Twits? Must think on it.
In my defense, I am as fascinated by new shiny toys as the rest… And I adore cats, as well. Like with cats, however, I prefer that my new shiny be as debugged as possible before it comes into my house.
For those of you on the frontiers of technology who have already passed the edges of light expanding past the universe, and who look back on late adopters like me with a sort of fond disdain, I say this: It is a far wiser man who lets evolution do its work before dipping his dainty toes into the genetic murk. And that stands true especially for technology.
