Bill Gates Is on Twitter...When It's Working

The former Microsoft employee has given in to the wicked 140-word (or fewer) temptations of the vile social networking site (where, of course, you can follow RCPU at twitter.com/leepender). Apparently, he's got some odd following preferences and some annoying new online friends.

The good news about Twitter this week is that it went down again for a while on Wednesday morning. Your editor is an ardent opponent of the whole concept of Twitter and would love to see (with apologies to the folks who work there) the whole operation silenced forever. Until that happens, though, that link again for following RCPU on Twitter is twitter.com/leepender.
