Two years ago Nate sent me a link to something called "Twitter" and he said it was going to be a big deal. It's not that I doubted him, I just thought it seemed unnecessary for me. I definitely wasn't in the market for another social media site to have to maintain. So Nate signed up and I didn't.
Now I am coming to the realization that he was very smart. Not so much because I regret not having a twitter account all of this time, but because I finally went on to start an account and there are no names left. Seriously. Nada.
I keep finding people I am interested in following, but in order to follow I need my own account. I'm afraid I'm going to have to use one of those corny AIM user names like mclovesyou or something. That would be embarrassing if my kids ever found out. I just can't risk it.
I even googled "how to choose a name for twitter." People kept advising me to use my name or my business name -- but both were taken so no dice. Who are all of these people who all of the sudden have the name "Mary Carol"? Where have they been all my life?
So the moral of this rambling is that if you snooze you lose with social media (just ask the Winklevoss twins). Also, listen to your husband.
Oh, and I think everyone should leave their suggestions for my twitter name in the comments section. Hit me with your best shot. If it's genius or completely ridiculous or still available, chances are I'll use it.
