Now even tweeter than before

Posted by andrea tomkins in: technical stuff

I’ve done it! I finally got myself a Twitter account!

I hope to keep it updated with the best family-related activites for kids in Ottawa and various other bits and bobs which strike my fancy. :)

p.s. Recent updates (otherwise known as tweets) will automatically appear in the sidebar. So you can follow along that way too.

Andrea, you’ll have to let us know how you are liking Twitter! I have been going back and forth on whether or not to sign up for the store, but I just can’t wrap my brain around it. I think it is something I will have to actually do before I “get it”!

I’m liking it. And although many use it for personal kinds of communication I can definitely see the business applications. There are lots of good articles on this topic. Here’s one: 50 ways to use Twitter for business by Chris Brogan.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human offspring: Emma (23) and Sarah (21). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.

If you'd like to contact me, please use this form. If you're so inclined, you can read more about me here. Thank you for visiting!

All hail the mighty Twitter
