All A-Twitter

With a mixture of ambivalence, curiosity, and concern for the battery life of my iPhone, I’ve dipped a toe into the next frontier of social media blah-de-blah by signing up for a Twitter account. It’s handy for disseminating tidbits of information that are too tiny to merit a blog post, and I’ve found the ability to carry on instant message-length discussions with my BP colleagues and fellow writers during the playoffs to rise to the level of entertainment at least a few times. More importantly it’s come in handy for mundane work reasons such as getting a jump on how the Dodgers will line up their rotation for the NLCS (Kershaw, Padilla, Kuroda and Wolf, according to MLB.com beat writer Todd Zolecki) so I can meet the deadline for my Playoff Prospectus.

That said, your mileage may vary, and if Twitter ain’t your thing, there’s absolutely no need to join the rest of us twits.
