    Wonder if it was related to the tsunami?

    I've noticed a lot more high school kids using Twitter. I'd be curious to know if those kids are using FB less.

    The teens that I know have pretty much abandoned Facebook for twitter. They say Facebook is overran with adults now and are glad adults haven't figured out twitter.

    Spirited Away is one of those movies that I don't typically try to see. Now that enough people have told me I have to watch it, I think I'm just being stubborn and not watching it...

    Luckily, it would be awful hard to play Farmville or Mafia Wars on Twitter.

    The great thing about twitter is even if they do figure it out you don't have to follow them.

    So true. It's funny because I'll see kids complanning about their parents being on Facebook and twitter and I'm thinking why are they following me and why are they letting me follow them?
