A good use for Twitter?

Ok, so I’m one of those dinosaurs that doesn’t quite get some of these new-fangled MyBook/FaceSpace social networking things that the kids are into these days.

I really don’t understand Twitter. My life is not that exciting, and I’m pretty sure nobody out there needs to be updated in 140 characters or less on what PBS Kids show I’m currently watching with my kids.

But this is kind of funny.

OK, I freely admit that this makes me not only a dork, but a newspaper-obsessed dork.

As a wise man once said, "I’m a dork, and that’s what we do."
