Her first tweet was:
“Hi, everyone, and thanks for the warm welcome. Look forward to staying in touch with you here. — mo.”
Even the first lady is ahead of me on the technology curve.
It takes some of us longer than others.
Samuel L. Jackson just sent his first tweet in October.
He had set up an account two years ago, but never used it.
Then he went on Late Night, and Jimmy Fallon helped him tweet.
I can’t reprint Samuel L. Jackson’s first tweet here.
There are children reading this column.
I have a Twitter account.
I opened it about two years ago.
Well, my husband made me open it about two years ago.
I have only posted one tweet, on Nov. 12, 2009.
“You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make her tweet.”
Trying to follow a conversation on Twitter makes my head hurt.
It’s hard for me to write short.
Although I do like labeling things with ironic hashtags.
I have nine followers.
I know eight of them.
Feel free to follow me. @ByLisaDavis.
Just know that we’re not going to go anywhere.
I fear, however, that technology is about to overtake me.
There are now five computers in our household of four people.
Well, six computers if you count my husband’s iPhone.
You can’t count my cell phone.
It’s the dinkiest cell phone in the world.
It barely has a camera.
Having all these computers is all the more astounding because we only have one TV.
I fear I am being left behind.
It’s like that video of the 1-year-old little girl trying to make a magazine work like an iPad.
My daughter is three operating systems ahead of me.
On a road trip recently, we were listening to the car radio, and my son asked what was wrong with the music.
It kept getting scratchy in parts.
He is a child of the iPod.
He had never heard radio static.
A few days later, he was reading the comics page and couldn’t figure out one of the jokes because he didn’t know what the Yellow Pages were.
I couldn’t do without my Yellow Pages.
I choose a plumber based on the size of his ad.
I once needed to look up local businesses that began with S-P-A.
I don’t remember why I needed to do this.
But I couldn’t do it on Google.
Besides, the cover of the Yellow Pages is where I scribble down frequently used phone numbers.
I really should learn how to program my cell phone.
