"Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into." 10th Twitter-versary

My first tweet

With those oh,so profound words, I tweeted my first tweet on 28 March 2008. In the ten years subsequent, I've tweeted 19,532 times, which works out to about 5.4 tweets per day.

For me, Twitter has been an e-bookmark for interesting stories, a news chyron, a beer travelogue, a stealthy, 'overheard' gossip, a blog teaser, a flame chamber, more recently a Trump taser, never an "I got up this morning and brushed my teeth mini-diary," but always an addictive 140/280-character waste of time. As Ollie said to Stan, "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into."

It was way cool in 2008; now, much more fuddy-duddy. But it's #MyTwitterAnniversary and I'll cry if I want to.

Yours for good fermentables,

PS. Here I go again. Since 12 April 2012, I've been 'on' Instagram (@TCizauskas), posting 362 images during that time. Only 19,170 to go. Maybe it's time for a beer. (I don't have a count on those.)
