Okay, I finally caved to a couple of requests that I get on Twitter. Unfortunately, because of my delay in signing up, pretty much any semblance of my name was already taken, so I went with the title of my column. I refuse to use the term “tweet” for anything I write, however.

You can sign up to follow my riveting Twitter updates at ThePowersThatBe. To a great degree I’ll point to posts here and to my columns, but I also plan to jot down random thoughts that are too short to warrant a regular blog post.

If you have a Twitter account leave a note in comments with the addy and I’ll sign up as a follower of yours as well.
