Closed for Business

I went to a media conference at Gettysburg College a few months ago. All the journalists there were a twitter about twitter. I went home that night and opened up my account. So far, it hasn't had much action.  To my knowledge, not many of my college classmates are on Twitter; most prefer facebook. (Myspace is totally out.) 

I love things from the internet that hark back to an earlier time (like YOU ARE REMARKABLE that coordinates people sending strangers snail mail -- not emails! -- telling them how remarkable they are). Incorporating the new with the old seems to be a growing trend, which is why I was disappointed that I missed the deadline (by mere hours) for: the Twitter on Paper Project. Twitter on paper was a service that allowed people to request custom paper versions of Sam Pott's tweets to be mailed to them for free.
