marriage movement

twitter-logo1Twitter is another online social network exploding into the mainstream!

People following other people they know, don’t know, want to know or hope to know in real-time someday.  Until then, the conversations are limited to 140-characters, including links to photos, websites or blogs through shrunken URL’s that look like a drunk typed on the keyboard.

I’ve been existing in experimental mode on Twitter for the last several months (follow me @marriagejunkie).  I’ve followed the messages among those I follow (feeling a bit like a grammatical voyeur).  I’ve watched how Twitter is talked about in the media (with TV reporters now begging for followers during the news).  I’ve read articles on how Twitter is revolutionizing the world.  (I’ve even corresponded with some of those doing the revolutionizing such as, Guy Kawasaki).
