Those of you that don’t “get” Twitter aren’t having fun with us avid Tweeters. I could spend days on Twitter with my clever and snappy (and sometimes hilariously grumpy) crew. My “Tweeps” provide me with distraction and comfort, humor and support.

But I needed more than a break after I wrote a sentence so full of typos that it looked like I wasn’t writing in English; I needed a little encouragement. When “Introduction” came out on the screen as “Introducation,” I just stopped and realized it was time for that break and playful jab.
