We're having a meeting at work about social media on Tuesday. I'm curious if MySpace or Facebook will come up but there's rumor that Twitter will be discussed as a legitimate journalistic tool.
I have passionately avoided Twitter up until now. Just one more thing to be addicted to and one more way for me to electronically put my foot in my mouth.
I didn't realize how truly behind the times I was until yesterday. The conversation went something like this:
me: I can't decide between the U and BYU for law school.
Emilie: You should talk to graduates from both programs.
me: That would be nice. Huh. I think I might know someone that graduated from the Y?
Emilie: If I found people would you be interested in talking to them?
me: Do you really have time for that?
Emilie: I'll send it out on Twitter.
I've been thinking about really complex ways to run into law school graduates. Thought about some old-fashioned ways like calling their alumni associations. All it really takes, however, is for Emilie to press send on her cell phone. And putting out a plea for help on my Facebook status probably won't hurt either. Oh, this brave, new world.
