I still don't 'get' Twitter, but I did subscribe to Merlin Mann's Twitter RSS feed, and I have to say, I'm enjoying it. Here is today's:
"Every time you sniff and say somebody has "too much free time," the part of you that used to love making things for pure joy dies a little."
Some of my recent favorites:
"SEO advice that doesn't begin with "1. Don't rely on horseshit tricks" is -- well, frankly -- very probably horseshit."
"Making a plausible-looking fake email from Admiral Ackbar. For a talk. For my job."
"I think traces of a Baltimore accent are creeping into my vowels. I'm like an impressionable 14-year-old girl. It's tree-ew."
"Developing a rash whenever you shave more than twice in five days seems like a sure sign of chronic hobo-ism."
"Local TV news is like a refrigerator that I know is empty, but which I inexplicably keep checking anyhow."
"Emo boys are a little like Jenga; remove the spikey belt and key ring, and everything falls apart in a sad little pile."
"Just insinuated an adorable stuffed bear into the crook of Ellie's right arm. Crazy-cute, but admittedly a bit "Weekend at Bernie's." (Ellie is his infant daughter)
"The Grammy awards must be what it's like when boring people do mushrooms."
"Just referred to a limo as "The Hoopty Noir." Why am I even allowed to type?"
So I'm digging Merlin's 'twits', but I can't imagine following more than one or two people and I REALLY can't imagine getting updates via SMS.
