To tweet is sweet

I’m still struggling to master the social networking that is Twitter, but the one thing I do know is that it has become a very important method of driving traffic to websites.  I’d therefore appreciate it very much if those of you with Twitter accounts would consider hitting the new embedded Tweet button on my posts — provided, of course, that you think any given post is tweet-worthy.  I can’t hide the fact that I’ve got a lot of my intellectual ego tied up in this blog, and I find traffic gratifying.

Be Sociable, Share!

    I don’t tweet. You really have to draw the line _somewhere_!!

    Additionally, I see that on Terry’s note, there’s also a “retweet”. Which reminds me of the old joke … “tweet and retweet were out on a boat. The boat sank, and tweet drowned…who was left? Retweet!

    Tweet and retweet….(you know how it goes…!)

    Also, I need to clean out my Yahoo mailbox. Yahoo gives you so much space – and I haven’t cleaned it out for years. So I need to do that – starting with the earliest stuff and moving right along… Some of the “stuff” I have saved is jokes emailed to me by various folks. And I sort of hate to part with some of it – but the fact is, it’s a bit stale. Nevertheless, when we have “open” threads, I think I’ll just plant a piece or two…

    Which is a lead in for the following:
    (bear in mind – this is old and dated stuff…but I got a laugh out it when it was new!)

    “Due to the popularity of the Survivor shows, Texas is planning to do its
    own, entitled Survivor – Texas Style.

    The contestants will start in Dallas, travel to Waco, Austin, San Antonio,
    over to Houston and down to Brownsville. They will then proceed up to Del
    Rio, on to El Paso, then to Midland, Odessa, Lubbock and Amarillo. From
    there, they’ll proceed to Abilene, Ft. Worth and finally back to Dallas.

    Each will be driving a pink Volvo with a bumper sticker that reads: “I’m
    gay, I’m a vegetarian, I voted for Al Gore, George Strait Sucks, Hillary in
    2004, and I’m here to confiscate your guns!

    The first one to make it back to Dallas alive wins.”

    I would be happy to retweet. I can’t find your Twitter ID to follow you.

    Now I feel silly and I am laughing at myself for missing how easy you made it.

    Thank you, Bookworm!
