Twitter Links for the Tweetless: A list of great things I’ve found on the web recently.

My wife was standing there, staring at the screen with a blank look on her face. I look at the screen & am pleased to see that she’s looking at my Twitter account.

“Whoa! You’re looking at my Twitter?”
“Yeah… I don’t get it.”
“What don’t you get?”
“Twitter… I just don’t get it.”

She was scanning my tweets because I’ve been hassling her lately saying, “Did you see that article about the thingy-ma-dos? I posted it on my Twitter.” Her newest addiction is Pinterest, so I tried explaining to her that I use Twitter kind of like Pinterest; It’s a way for me to share some of the cool things I’ve found online.

Since I know she won’t be converting to Twitter any time soon, & several of you may not use it, I figured I’d share some of the stuff going on over there with you. So here ya go—a list of the random, funny, serious, and helpful things I’ve been sharing on Twitter. Enjoy! And if you’re on Twitter, don’t forget to follow @frayedparent!
