TWITTER*pated

Have any of you heard of Twitter?

Well, a certain family member, who shall remain nameless, received an invitation to join this up and coming Next Big Thing.

I don’t like my kids to sign up for stuff like this using any of their information. So I went and checked it out and then used my info to sign up for it. This way I can go in every once in a while and check to make sure that things are still safe for my kids. If after awhile things check out fine, I let my kids switch my info for theirs, but still keep the same password so I can continue to check in from time to time.

One caution about Twitter:

Once you sign up, it pulls ALL the addys in your email address book into their system.

ALL OF THEM.

And if you aren’t careful a certain nameless family member whose computer skillz know no bounds may wind up sending Twitter invites to EACH AND EVERY MEMBER OF YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS BOOK.

Give or take a few.

And this just might lead to some mighty embarrassing moments.

Like explaining to Parker’s surgeon why he too received a Twitter invitation.

I’m just saying.

Anybody in the market for a certain nameless 12 year old?

So, if you happen to be one of the 90 bajillion people to receive a Twitter invite from us……..

Opps.

And please know we will be shutting down our Twitter account ASAP.
