We're Twitterific!

Recently in the news Twitter has recieved a lot of coverage. Partly because Ashton Kutcher said that if he beat CNN to get 1 million followers first he'd 'Ding Dong Ditch' Ted Turner's house. Katie just had to tell me that that means it's like a 'Nicky Nine Door', ring the bell and run. Katie also said she's not sure if there's a bag of flaming dog shit involved, but hopefully not! But that would be entertaining... hmm.

We decided to get Twitter for our blog about a month ago after some of our friends told us we had to. I believe the conversation went like this.

KK- "What's this Twitter thing?"

Martell Bros. - "Just get it."

KK- "Well what is it?"

MarBros- "How do you have a blog and not have Twitter?!?! It's like better than a blog!"

KK- "Ya ok...maybe we'll check it out"

And then they went on to talk about how many followers they have, how many people they are following and how many times a day they are 'tweeting'. All of this was like listening to someone talk with marshmellows in their mouth. And then of course one of the presenters talked about it at GBS and then in San Fran, Chantelle and Hoan raved about it.

So we got it. And we didn't know how to use it for about 2 weeks! Katie called Dan a 'twitter slut' for the first little bit because we were hardly following anyone, but she takes that back...there are bigger twitter sluts than Dan. But it's actually REALLY easy and you can follow pretty much anyone!

For example...we are following A.C. Slater (real name Mario Lopez)- his most recent 'update'
MarioLopezExtraMaria Shriver and I are going to start taking salsa lessons together! Hope Arnold is cool with it... She loves to dance
jimmyfallonRode the elevator with David Letterman just now. How cool is that? Shout out to Eddie Brill....
JonathanRKnightFor Earth Day some of these Hollywood woman should give up their lip injections! Just saw the craziest lips on this woman QUACK! QUACK!

Even though we're following some of the biggest names in Hollywood, we do love to see what they're up to, but it's less about following 'them' and more about learning what they do, where they get their information and who they are affecting.

We're all human, we're all on the same level, same planet, why shouldn't we be able to communicate?

And I wanna see Ashton 'Ding Dong Ditch' Ted Turner in Atlanta....we'll keep you posted!

In the meantime, get a Twitter account to add to your already growing list of Social Networking Sites and follow us @Lost_On_Purpose :)

Happy Tweeting!
