Better late then never.
There's a scene in Dumb and Dumber where Lloyd is leaving the bar and notices a framed newspaper clipping on the wall. The headline reads, "Man Walks on the Moon." Confused and excited, he shakes his head in boyish amazement. Then, with a pleasing smile, he kicks open the swinging bar door and jubilantly exults to a lobby full of people, "We landed on the Mooooon!!!"
Poor Lloyd was clearly a little behind the times. I felt a little behind the times myself today. Although I've had Twitter for the last year or so, I've probably made more trips to the proctologist than I have to my Twitter home page. Most, as in all, of my friends don't have a ticket to the Twitter Express. Its been a very boring and voyeuristic experience for me.

Well, that's all about to change. No more will the trivial day-to-day transactions of the rich and famous fill the spaces of my Blackberry Twitter feed. My CreComm classmates and I, an army of about 25 strong, have joined Twitter with guns blazing.
