Yes, I'm On Twitter

OK, I did it. I'm now on Twitter. You can follow me at http://twitter.com/RonSBM.
Why did I join the latest social networking craze? Well, two reasons. One, I wanted to upset my 18-year-old nephew, and what better way than for his 40-year-old uncle to set up a Twitter account. He's now feeling very uncoooool. Wait until I show him my FaceBook page.
Lastly, I really wanted to see who the hell would want to follow me. I've been on Twitter now for a week or so and I have four people following me. That's four more than I thought I'd have. Trust me, it's not my wife and family (they could care less about what I'm doing).
I don't even know these people (followers). I don't know if I should send them a sympathy card or call them up, thank them and beg them to keep following me. Who would want to follow me? I mean, buying a new t-shirt is usually the highlight of my month.
Maybe I can start my own cult.
