I should know better than this by now

I promised myself I wouldn’t hang out on Twitter unless I came up with ten good reasons to justify it. I’m still not so sure about “good,” but here are ten reasons:

  1. Tired of fluttering back and forth between other people’s streams
  2. Wanted to see if anyone had had the temerity to swipe the name
  3. Fear of becoming long-winded in my old age
  4. How hard can it be if Ashton Kutcher can do it?
  5. Heard there was going to be a prize for Fewest Followers
  6. Consistency demonstrated in being once again several years behind the cool kids
  7. No other hope of snagging a girlfriend in Argentina
  8. Free extraneous links to the blogstuff
  9. Thought “hashtag” was something you played at Cracker Barrel
  10. Trini’s out of town for the weekend

So be it, then.

    At least you thought it out a bit. I swore I wouldn’t, then inexplicably, I jumped in.

    My fourth- or fifth-greatest fear is that someone will think, “Well, hell, he’s on there, I might as well give it a try.”

    As with most unreasonable fears, though, I shouldn’t hold my breath waiting for it to come to fruition.

    I got there before you did, but only after hearing about its involvement with the Iranian deal. It was a good source of news about that, until Jacko overdosed. Now it’s all Jacko all the time.
