As part of my never-ending quest to waste as much time as possible, I’ve signed up for a new Internet toy — Twitter. It started as a cell-phone thing, giving registered users the ability to post short updates — 140 characters, max — about what they’re doing right freaking now:
“Picking my nose.”
“Wishing I had a copy of the Dead’s new vault release.”
“Buying beer for this weekend’s moe. show.”
“Pondering existentialism. And, uh, bottle caps.”
Stuff like that.
Twitter’s since been ported to the Internets, giving people like me — the ones whose cell service plans don’t include unlimited texts — the ability to take part in all the fun.
I’ve seen some content that’s surprisingly creative, especially with the 140-character limit. And much of the content is completely inane — which means Uncle Crappy should fit in just fine.
So. If for some reason you want to see what Uncle Crappy is doing at any given moment, you can go here to find out. And if it looks like I’m going to make this a semi-regular thing, I may even post a Twitter badge on this here page, giving you the ability to check both the blog and the Twitter posts with one convenient click.
I make no promises about how regularly I’ll update the thing — but that’s part of the fun, boys and girls.
