Twits on Twitter

As our regular readers know, we don't post much while we are on Red Cross jobs. The work is rather all-consuming and doesn't leave us much energy at the end of the day to compose full sentences, much less paragraphs. We plan to go back to our regular blogging schedule after our Red Cross stint is done this year, but in the meantime we have been using Twitter for the last several months as a way to sort of "micro blog."

Twitter is a social networking site that invites you to answer the question, "What are you doing?" in 140 characters or fewer. It allows us to post quick updates of what we are thinking, feeling or doing. We like it, and have been sharing it with my family and a handful of friends.

My updates are available here, and Sean's quick tweets are here. You can also read our latest stuff in the boxes in the upper right corner of this blog. You'll need a Flash player to see those.

If you want to join in the fun and post your own tweets, it is easy to sign up for Twitter. The site will ask you to choose a user name and password, and give them an email address. We have received absolutely no spam or other unwanted emails from Twitter.

I hope you'll enjoy this additional way to read about our adventures!

  1. Seems that you two are quite busy. I miss the near daily updates. Tweets just aren't the same.

    Now that I'm living the lifestyle, I have to say that it's not nearly as easy as you two make it seem, but it's at least as much fun!


Share your comments on this post! We currently allow anyone to comment without registering. If you choose to use the "anonymous" option, please add your name or nickname to the bottom of your comment, within the main comment box. Getting feedback signed simply "anonymous" is kind of like having strangers shout things at us on the street: a bit disconcerting. Thanks!
