Twitter-pated

-1 for the obvious lame joke title, but it fits, and its the only one I could think of. Yay me.

So yeah, four days on Twitter, and I'm already addicted. It's a nifty little service, really. So far, I've kept up on what Wil Wheaton (@wilw) is reading, Brent Spiner's (@BrentSpiner) adventures in - well, I don't know if its rehab or just a sort of psychotherapy, he hasn't been too clear on that one, and Weird Al Yankovic's (@alyankovic) down payment on his Tesla Model S, which he says will arrive in 3-5 years (much like Verizon FiOS in my neck of the woods). I also caught the tweet announcing the name of Alyson Hannigan's (@alysonhannigan) newborn baby: Satyana.

PS: Alyson and Alexis - Congratulations, and that has to be one of the most unique and beautiful baby names I've ever heard!

I was going to write in this post about a new Twitter-related quest, to get a celebrity response. But, as of this writing, that's already happened! Turns out that there's a bug on Twitter which causes your personal icon to go either totally gray or totally black, which some figure is a result of switching your icon image. A tweet came in from author Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) on the subject, and I tweeted in reply that the same thing had happened to author John Scalzi (@scalzi) and is still happening to author Corey Doctorow (@doctorow). Scalzi replied to both Neil and me! How awesome is that? Quest achieved even before I announced it!

A screencap before it goes the way of the digital dodo...

Awesomeness!

So yeah, I'll be adding I've added a Follow Me on Twitter link to the sidebar sometime soon. Everyone can thank Twitter for forcing my return to the blogosphere, and making it fun to blog again!

Addendum: After I posted this, I checked out my Clustermaps archive. With a hit last week from Africa, The Lost Prophyt Blog has been officially read on six of seven continents, the only exception being (not surprisingly) Antarctica. Thanks to everyone who has ever stopped (or will stop) by: You helped me go global, and for that, you have my thanks!

In response to Spiner's 'rehab' tweets, that's just fun and not to be taken seriously. He suddenly just busted into a, 'I have to go into rehab for 'nothing'' tweet groove the other day. I tweeted him already that it could be taken 'too seriously', haha. Or at least might be a tad confusing.

Indeed. He does make it believable, doesn't he... But that's what makes Brent a great actor then, isn't it.

Spiner FTW!
