The old Genesis song "Follow You, Follow Me" has new meaning with the advent of Twitter. I've just noticed that my employer, Grand Valley State University, has an account. So I signed up and 'follow' GVSU. I also follow a close friend, some national media, and my U.S. Representative, which has been interesting this week in particular. A few are now following me and I've sent a few messages, or "tweets" as they are known, this week.
I'm experimenting to see if this is just a game or has practical utility for me. So, why don't you join the experiment. October 3 I leave for France to teach for a week in Angers, at a GVSU partner institution called ESSCA. I will have access to a computer occasionally and hope to 'tweet' from France as I'm able. Go to Twitter.com and sign up for a free account. Look me up (penningink) and "follow" me.
And in keeping with the old rock ballad, I may follow you as well.
