Turbo Twitter!

I’ve been using Twitter almost since it was started. I first came across it while listening to the Paul Boagworld Podcast when I was in primary school and was super interested in web design and web 2.0 in general.

Unfortunately, after submitting this post nearly two months ago, it has been rejected (I assume) so I thought I would post it here.
