Back in 5th grade I had a teacher named Mr. Raines who used to call me and my classmates "twits" (amongst other names).
I hated Mr. Raines. He was an ass, and a crappy teacher too.
He was fired after that year. Not sure what he did after that or where he went - to hell hopefully (or eventually).
Anyway, I believe because of this experience at such a young, impressionable age I have harbored a deep resentment of the word "twit" along with any and all associated linguistics, ergo, "Twitter".
Well in an attempt to bury the past and to appease the masses I am at this time "trending toward" joining Twitter.
I can no longer allow Mr. Raines 5th grade open area jargon and slurs to rule my existence, just as I can no longer hold back the growing legion of potential followers who have taken the suggestion that I become enveloped in all the Twitter is and have produced a tidal surge of social media interest in bringing my most mundane thoughts and utterances to you all, 140 characters at a time.
So I'll tell you what, if this movement to get me on Twitter hits 1,069, I'll do it.
If momentum tapers off and it doesn't reach that number I will continue to watch the phenomenon that is "Tweeter" and "Headbook" from afar...and Mr. Raines will have won.
Godspeed to all of you.
