    So, Twitter has been out for a while and it's apparently here to stay. There are those that mock it (courtesy of XKCD.com):

    And those that love it. I'm not interesting enough to follow on Twitter for the most part (and I have very firm ideas on spending more of my life microblogging about my life), but I'm wondering about finding feeds that people DO find interesting?

    I've been on it for less than a month, but I enjoy more than a few tweets. Some of the gay porn actor / star tweets are cattily fun, Roger Ebert provides some fun quotes and reflections (in terms of art and politics), Andy Borowitz, I am Ozma, Sarah Silverman, and Stephen Colbert provide regular bon mots, Glenn Greenwald provides political updates and responses, and Paris Hilton provides a glimpse into the life of enjoyable wealth and perkiness.

    There are also some good LGBTQ news feeds (Joe.My.God., Towleroad, Gawker, and more).

    OOOOH! Do you know where that comic comes from?

    I've been looking for these comics for months! A friend of mine sent me one but didn't know where they came from! Pretty please? icon_redface.gif

    Issue resolved!

    They're from XKCD by Randall Munroe.

    Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif Much appreciated!

    As for Twitter... I managed to get my name in it early (a nice feat I am told) but I still haven't got to use it regularly... most of my friends are mostly on Facebook and not on Twitter so I guess I'm not too motivated. Maybe in the near future if I start a blog I might find a use to it.
