Tweets and the city

Do you tweet?
Most the time I dont even know where my cell phone is so, go figure. It has been months that buddies have asked me (and a few recent emails) to get into the twit-mode. Is that what the cool kids are doing?
Here is me: @meligrosa

This comes a few minutes after I had just read that twittering is as cool as blue velvet ‹LaughingSquid|David Lynch Confirms Twitter Account›

In the meantime, here is a gorgeous photo with an interesting article. H/T:Ratta

I Tweet, Therefore I Am
By Owen Thomas
‟Why do people Tweet? Even the company's CEO,
Ev Williams | @ev can't answer that question. Perhaps he
is embarrassed by the true reason: We Twitter to
reassure ourselves that we are alive.
But the narcissism of today's overcommunicators transcends
one little startup, and goes far beyond the makers of media...

  1. You know I Tweet!

  2. I don't tweet Meli, old school is the new school. I'm ready to ditch my mobile phone altogether. Ride/blog on!

  3. I do not tweet unless I am dressed like a Cheep for Easter.

  4. I barely understood what tweeting was until last week ~ H started doing it. I think it is for people with ADD. Not that there is anything wrong with it...

  5. Oops! I thought it said Tweeds in the City. I thought Meli had become a Tweedy. ;)

  6. Sigh. I tried facebook recently. So time consuming and what's the point if you have a blog? So I pass on twitter and hope that blogging stays around even if it is old skool :)

  7. cool, thanks for the tweets, tweetsters

    cyclingTeacherGuy/ right?! okay, Im not alone!

    adrienne/ you crack me up!! we should dress up as pink peeps on bikes OMG...

    sigrid/ LOL - yeah, I had no idea til 'hack the debate' from current tv seeing all these people sending tweets, recently it's gotten a tremendous amount of media. oh well

    spiderLegGreen/ ha haaa!! :D

    maryJo/ yes thank you! I agree with you –wait bloggin is old school!? no wonder I really like it :D

  8. I still don't really understand tweeting. I think this means I'm getting old :(

  9. @ Meligrosa- I am so right there! We could be a giant bicycle, pink Cheep Halloween line!!!!!!!! Oh the glory it would be!

  10. Meli - are you using the swobo basket? and if so what have you thought of it so far?

  11. hey Ryan C, no-Im not sure what brand/basket if any at all. I got it at AmericanCyclery sometime ago, so. but yes, love the basket :)

  12. I tweet and am addicted (I'm RMetalBroad on twitter). It's great for those small thoughts that strike when you are either not in front of a computer (like out on your bike) or when you need to jot something down to blog about later (and like me, will likely forget otherwise).
