For years I have intentionally resisted Twitter. Why do I need one more distraction? For reasons related to balance and Sabbath, I didn't feel it would be healthy. But under peer pressure and some protest, I have given in. My attempts at being Amish have failed. And now I tweet. "You win, Twitter. Are you happy now?!"
I want to thank Pope Benedict for making me feel completely out of touch when, at 84 years old, he began tweeting two years ago. He was the first pope to do so.
I'd also like to thank 82-year-old Warren Buffet for his inspiration. He started tweeting over a month ago. His first tweet? "Warren is in the house." I guess I am too. Check me out @jeffcloeter.
