I don’t mind saying I love Twitter. Why? It helps me make contacts, leads me to good (most of the time!) information, allows me to interact with other writers and reporters in real time and find out what’s going on at the moment. It’s also fun. David Pogue, the tech columnist for the New York Times, was one of the first tweeps I followed. He started posing funny, or sometimes poignant, questions every night, then retweeting the best answers. I laughed my way to bed. I also submitted a few replies. He liked my answer to the question “What’s the weirdest job you ever had?” and that’s how I ended up as a co-author of The World According to Twitter. I’ve left this book out on our coffee table. People who don’t even like Twitter giggle their way through it!
