Are Those Who Twitter Considered to be Twits?

MontyPythonTwits.jpgTracy and Griff, widely recognized throughout the community for having too much time on their hands, have been whiling away the hours letting the world know about their coffee consumption, personal errands, and bathroom habits, using a “must-have” technology known as Twitter. Alas, with RepJ Star Bonnie Obremski in town for less than a week, they’ve already dragged her into this slough of respond.

In yesterday’s podcast, my too old for snowboards colleagues talked about using Twitter to “twit” each other. At the risk of suggesting that all I ever learned was from Monty Python, I must say that my definition of twit is somewhat less than positive.

Tracy, Griff, and Bonnie (while there is still time), perhaps you should do a little research about twits. Hopefully, you will be sufficiently motivated to trade your twitter for a saxophone.

    We’re using Twitter fairly extensively now at the Twin Cities Red Cross as a method for amping up the readiness level of our volunteers and staff. This is especially true in times when threatening weather means we need to be at a higher state of alert and ready to respond.

    Result? Even if we see clear skies at home, we know immediately when weather is threatening another portion of our service area and can anticipate the calls to respond better by having phones, cars, etc. at the ready.

    We understand that several police agencies in California and other cities have also begun to use it as well.
