Those of you who know me realize I’m a cyberspace case. I struggle with all things techie, even the remote control. I joined Twitter a year ago and just this week learned about making lists when I read Amber West’s blog post You’ve Got Questions – Everything Twitter.
In the comments section of Amber’s post, Renee A. Schuls-Jacobson recommended we also check out this link to Nina Badzin’s five-part blog series about Twitter.
I learned some Twitter etiquette, how to make lists, and how to do a proper @ reply retweet. I had no idea a period should go in front of the @ for certain replies retweets. Either a word or a period @ should be used at the beginning of a retweet. Did you know about that? Thank you, Amber, Renee, and Nina, for helping me find my way around the Twitterverse. I’ve always struggled with it.
(NOTE: Nina Badzin left a comment regarding the above paragraph, which I got wrong. It’s RETWEETS, not REPLIES that this info applies to. I’m glad she caught that, so I changed it.)

My oldest daughter said I look like a Muppet!

Are any of you old enough to remember the television show Lost in Space? It was pretty cheesy but I was a big fan of it when I was a kid! It was on CBS from 1965 through 1968.
