For various reasons, mostly involving health care reform, I explored Twitter this afternoon.

And, old, old, old as I may be, I'm not old enough that I can't do it.

Understand it immediately, of course, is another thing entirely.
I get the fluidity of conversations, the amazing voyeuristic "I'm watching all these people" aspect of it.
But there are lots of things about the mechanics of it that aren't immediately obvious --- and the site has one of the poorest "let us explain it so that great great grandparents can understand it" intros around.

I've hardly tweeted, of course. That may or may not come --- if not soon, then perhaps not at all --- we shall see.

Yours, only slightly atwitter so far...
