Twilliterate.

There's a new word for ya - go forth and spread it.

I am Twilliterate. I don't Tweet and I don't follow Tweets. Perhaps I am not as Twilliterate as some, who don't even know that one "Tweets" on "Twitter."

Perhaps Tweets are like blogs - they just need more time to catch on. Unlike blogs, the media picked up Twittering early and is, in some ways, hastening that growth. I am not sure I like the idea. Blogging already requires people to "feed the machine." I do, around twice a day. I like the outlet. Twittering 6 times or more a day with banal musings about flossings, frappes, and fritters - no, thanks. That's a chore.

So I am intentionally Twilliterate. I also don't read your Facebook status. I get it, we're all going about our daily lives. I feel no need to show you mine and am not going to bother when you show me yours. Deal?

perhaps you're just jealous that you can't blog in less than 140 characters?

I am building a site for the anti-Twitter group. I have already registered www.Twilliterate.com and I a have already created a shirt that shows the domain on the front and in large letters, "TWEETS ARE FOR TWITS" on the back. Good call!
