Friends, Family and Twits

Jun. 11, 2010

What is a tweet? Or is it a twit? We're at the Bead & Button show, and visited with a vendor who talked about messaging hundreds of clients at a time, and following over a thousand people. I got tired just listening to him, and thought, "What a twit!" Afterwards Bill sagely informed me he was called a tweet. I'm not so sure. Apparently his company is also on Facebook, but there they have fans, not friends. I think he's a twit.

First of all, how do you begin to follow a thousand people? Second, what's wrong with friends and family? Working in my studio everyday, I look forward to seeing the friends I've met through shows. I like to hear wasup. I like to see what everyone's been making. I like to know people are okay. 

For now, blogging is mind boggling enough. And I'm happy to call you my friends. Please. Do not call me a twit.
