I Love Twitter

I love Twitter, and I might be addicted. Fortunately – or unfortunately – I have to work all day and so can’t access Twitter until I get home around six.  Even then, I don’t dwell on Twitter Lane as many people seem to do; I just love to walk up and down the Twittersphere and … [Read more]

CBS Sunday Morning's Two Takes On Blogging
