Why I am such a twit

I have succumbed to social networking -- specifically, Twitter.

By Mehdi Hasan

It’s official. I am a twit. Sorry, twitterer. No, tweeter. Oh, I give up. I’m on Twitter.

Having harangued, condemned, mocked, abused, vilified and laughed out loud at friends and relatives who enthusiastically signed up to the plethora of curiously named social networking sites that sprang up in recent years — MySpace, Facebook, Bebo (?!!) et al — I have reluctantly, and with the appropriate level of feigned disdain, signed up to Twitter.
