Time for a Tweet

Tweet, re-Tweet....

I remember when I first became aware of Twitter in 2007.  I had just returned to acting and was working on the show, "Take Me Out."  A number of cast members, particularly those from New York, would often be typing furiously during breaks in rehearsal.  I would come to learn that they were, in fact, "tweeting."

I, myself, was just getting the hang of Facebook and texting, so trust that I was not entertaining any thoughts of joining a social networking system built upon short blurbs of 140 characters or less.  For my life and my needs at the time, Twitter would have been pointless.  Ironically, when my friends would share what they were "tweeting" about with me, I began to believe that perhaps having no point at all was the point of it in the first place.  Tempting, but no thanks.

Fast forward 4 years, and here I am: 
An avid Facebooker, an improving texter, and now a fledgling "tweeter."


Not that I've completely succumbed to the age of being "plugged in," mind you.  But for where I am in my life right now and where I'd like to go, Twitter can actually serve a purpose.

What can one expect to read should they follow me on Twitter?  Of course, I'll be "tweeting" when I add a new post, but I'll also be sharing photos of food I'm either cooking or eating (usually both), spreading the word on sales for the particular diet at local grocers, gushing about gastronomic finds at restaurants, and chirping out little canary musings and anecdotes along the way.

If you should feel so inclined, I invite you to come with me.  Not necessarily to follow, but more to stroll alongside me on the path of dietary difference.

Should be fun, and I can guarantee that I will almost always have a point. :)

  1. It's appropriate for a canary to tweet =) I don't know when or if I'll have a twitter account, but I know that you having an account for the blog will definitely open you up to a wider audience.
