so, last year at the beginning of april i moved back to CAlifornia from COlorado. while i was living in the wild i worked for a start-up social networking site (www.iggli.com) and i met some fabulous friends but i was also exposed to ALL KINDS of crazy social networks. one of those [which seemed completely worthless at the time] was www.twitter.com
we all did it! ...but we were only "tweeting" to each other and other tech-nerds. keep in mind, this was more than a YEAR ago! so now, it is hilarious that twitter has completely blown up! it is insane! everrrryone is on twitter now! wts?
it's cool if you use it how @theellenshow does. she always has silly contests and show ticket giveaways. it's hilarious. but ellen is mostly awesome anyway, so it's always funny. @jimmyeatworld do similar give-aways and tweet live songs, pictures from shows, etc. they did a giveaway that i loved once... they left 2 tickets at will-call for one of their shows under the name "Twitter"!!! unfortch, no one picked them up and they said they're not going to do that again :(
of couuuurse one of my all-time favorite twitter-ers is @311_nick. it's awesome to see him on there right now, because 311 is currently on tour and he is always twittering. it's really awesome to be SO up to speed on everything they are doing! off days, tour dates, setlists, announcements, pictures, gossip... we get it all on there! he announced that he and his wife are expecting their first child there and even that one of the bands' tour buses had broken down! sooo exciting to be in the loop like that! they have a new album coming out on JUNE2 called Uplifter and all of the news is popping out there. it's awesome.
anyway, enough twitter-chat. if you're on there, follow me if you like @rosiita
