Yeah, I got a Twitter account. Part of my continuing plan to take over all forms of modern social media. And besides, if I am struck by a deep thought while sitting in an airport waiting for a delayed flight, don't you deserve to know about it right away? Of course you do. And emails like this make it all worthwhile:

Hi, Sean Carroll (seanmcarroll). Karl Rove (KarlRove) is now following your updates on Twitter. Check out Karl Rove's profile here: http://twitter.com/KarlRove Best, Twitter

Now if I could get Shaq to follow me, I'd hit the big time. (Note that Rove has 13,373 followers, and is himself following 13,369 feeds. Clearly there are four Twitterers out there who really pissed him off.) p.s. I am a lagging indicator, so if you're not already using Twitter, you are hopelessly backwards.
