"rockin' robin"

To tweet or not to tweet? That is the question today. I'm definitely not an early adopter when it comes to technology. Being a spendthrift at heart ("coupons" is one my favorite strategy games), I usually wait until the price comes down and the hoopla is over. For example, I didn't get an iPhone until AT&T started offering refurb models for $100 on their site.

And so my curiosity turns to Twitter. I recently found out that A-State's football head coach Hugh Freeze has started a Twitter feed. Let me pause for a moment and tell you how incredibly excited I am that this man has taken the pigskin helm at my alma mater. Without trying to sound like a crazy stalker lunatic, I think he's freakin' genius. He possesses the right attitude, the right plan and is coming in at the right time. I don't propose that we'll ever be that relevant in the world of football, but it's my team and I love 'em just as much as any fan loves their own. Freeze has a Twitter feed and I've looked at it a few days online. I'm always interested in what the man has to say. But I haven't decided if it's worth it to set up an account to follow. I honestly don't know a whole lot about Twitter except that a ton of celebrities use it and a good handful of them get really bad press when they exercise their First Amendment rights with it. (Otherwise known as diarrhea of the mouth.)

So anyone with a strong opinion or references to a good place to begin Twitter U, please speak up!

Eh, I have pretty mixed emotions about Twitter. I only follow well known folk (aka, no one I know personally) and never post (ok, I've posted twice, but found it to be a let down as you can only post a really limited amount at a time) so I find it not very informative. I follow folks like Rainn Wilson, Chelsea Handler, Craig Ferguson, some random UK folk, Google Sightseeing, etc... It's entertaining a few times a month. If I had it on my phone or something that I could check more frequently like when I'm bored at work, I might have more use for it. But hey, it's free... so I feel why not.
