Yep, I've taken the plunge and am now on Twitter. I did this even before Erik Marcus wrote a couple of posts outlining why it's a good idea, and I think the shift for me took place when it occurred to me that instead of just being a silly social networking site (yes, I've done my share of mocking!), Twitter could also be used as a tool for social justice. I mean, nobody cares about the daily minutiae of our lives I hope, but using Twitter to keep abreast of vegan happenings and to spread the word of awesome posts and videos by other bloggers is pretty cool. I haven't tweeted much myself yet and am still learning how it all works, but I can see the potential now. It's been fascinating recently to see ordinary folk around the globe standing up to dictatorial governments, and if a media mechanism like Twitter can be used to make our world more vegan even faster, than why not?
