    Do you tweet? It can be pretty addictive; kind of a stand-alone status page similar to Facebook’s. The fun is in trying to stay within the 140-word limit.

    No, no tweeting here…I have a hard enough time staying off blogs and facebook (hence my haiku about fb!) so I haven’t even tempted myself with Twitter:)
