If you're on Twitter, I just wanted to let you know that @donseymour, @joshnovotney and I have started using a hashtag, #va08 to identify tweets specifically relating to Virginia's Eighth District. This will enable us to organize our thoughts in one place, and to identify other "tweeple" who are interested in VA-8. So if you're on Twitter, be sure to add #va08 every time you tweet about the goings on in the Eighth!

As a "late adopter," I'm dragging my feet about getting on Twitter. I'm still grappling with Facebook and MySpace and every other blog and website on the damn internet. Will Twitter only add to my workload as I scramble to keep tabs on things, or will it eliminate redundancy, or what?
It really depends on how you use it. It's good for blasting out short thoughts, links to articles or announcements to a large number of people (I have about 1500 followers), and those various "tweets" from different people can be organized by topic with the hashtag. Then people can respond with their own thoughts. One nice thing is since you aren't posting anything beyond those 140-character tweets (as opposed to a bunch of personal info) you don't have to be hesitant to connect with people you don't know in real life, unlike on Facebook. Some people also coordinate their tweets with their Facebook status messages so that they reach even more people. Twitter is one of the few places on the Internet where conservatives are ahead.

My personal advice: if you're still getting comfortable with Facebook and MySpace you don't need to be in any hurry to get on Twitter. It will still be there when you're ready!
Thanks. I'm way comfortable already on other sites, it's just that I'm wary of winding up spending even more time sifting through the unending barrage of information. Maybe Twitter is a better "clearinghouse" than the others, though. Thanks again.

If you see someone considering switching parties, put your twitter down and back away from it slowly.
