Ok, fine. We're on Twitter.

I'll admit.  I was trying to resist.

But when visionaries the likes of Ashton Kutcher, Tom Crean and Charlie Villenueva using it how could we resist!

Kutcher of course brought the tweet to the main stream with his challenge of Larry King of who can get to a million followers first.  Unless if I m missing something, doesn t this apply to the "pick on someone your own size" mantra?  I mean, Kutcher is a young Hollywood "mogul" who has young fans who probably eat up things like Twitter for breakfast.  King on the other hand, who actually watches Larry King?  Do they even know that the internet exists?

One can only think that if Twitter existed a couple years ago Kelvin Sampson might still have a job at IU and Crean might still be at Marquette.   Well since that is not the case we are left with such nuggets as, "I can watch the NBA playoffs on tape.  The Housewives are treating each other in a nasty way." (regarding the New York Housewives reunion special on Bravo).

Villenueva, in my mind, is the best of the bunch.  What else would you do a halftime against the defending NBA champion Boston Celtics but this, "In da locker room, snuck to post my twitt. We're playing the Celtics, tie ball game at da half. Coach wants more toughness. I gotta step up."

We ll be using this emerging technology to keep everyone up to date on the happenings of WSN.  New items added to the WSN Cash-In Store, big breaking stories and reminders about events/promotions happening on   We are also very excited about potential other uses, think playoff football scores.

So become a follower.  Do it now.  We are going to tweet your socks off.  Or in the words of Charlie V, "Good morning twitterland, just waking up, mom making me some pancakes, i love mama pancakes"
