Finally on Twitter

Overheard in an IRC chat room (Freenode#oracle) this morning…

[24 May 11 09:30] * cheboygan: glad to see that someone read the
  blog post though.  at least i know one person read it.
[24 May 11 09:30] * rizzo: it got re-tweeted a lot last week
[24 May 11 09:30] * rizzo: get yourself on twitter, man
[24 May 11 09:30] * cheboygan: i've been resisting...
[24 May 11 09:30] * rizzo: give in
[24 May 11 09:30] * rizzo: it calls to you
[24 May 11 09:31] * cheboygan is still fighting it
[24 May 11 09:31] * rizzo: resistance is futile
[24 May 11 09:31] * cheboygan will never be assimilated
[24 May 11 09:32] * cheboygan: is there a point to having a twitter
  acct  if it's not tied to some kind of mobile device?
[24 May 11 09:34] * rizzo: cheboygan: sure, most of my twitter
  stuff is done at my desk
[24 May 11 09:34] * rizzo: just reading and posting updates
[24 May 11 09:35] * cheboygan: hm.  i just did a search and it 
  turns out there's a twitter plugin for my chat program.  might
  give that a try actually.  wow, really didn't think i'd be so
  easily persuaded.
[24 May 11 09:49] * rizzo: Dan Norris will thank me for this
[24 May 11 09:49] * cheboygan: have to admit that i did hold out
  for an impressively long time :)

[24 May 11 09:50] * rizzo: what's your twitter handle?
[24 May 11 09:50] * cheboygan: haven't setup the account quite
  yet... give me a few more minutes :)
[24 May 11 09:50] * rizzo: heh ok
[24 May 11 09:50] * rizzo refreshes madly

[24 May 11 09:56] * rizzo: bieber4life?
[24 May 11 09:57] * cheboygan: are you kidding?  bieber4life is
  definitely taken.

[24 May 11 10:04] * cheboygan: the problem with holding out on
  something like twitter, is that the longer you wait the more
  impossible it is to have any readable kind of handle.
[24 May 11 10:06] * cheboygan: maybe i should write a blog post
  and elicit suggestions or something.  this is ridiculous.  in
  fact, even the word ridiculous is taken.
[24 May 11 10:10] * Ramen: use l33t
[24 May 11 10:11] * cheboygan: just dicovered underscore is ok.
  new possibilities.

Just a few minutes after this, I finally caved in and signed up for Twitter.  My account is @jer_s – feel free to find me over there while I try to figure out what you’re supposed to do with this Twitter thing.
