“…And The Clocks Were Striking Thirteen”

November 16, 2010

Last weekend I joined Twitter.  Not to post anything, but to be able to follow the news feeds that come through it.  It was instantly addictive.  News headlines with the slide of a finger on my phone!  Would could be better?

Well, today I got an e-mail that my university is now following me on Twitter.  “Why?” was my first thought.  I find it a bit creepy.  Why does an organization with authority over me need to monitor any tweets I might make?  (This is in the hypothetical as I’m in receive only mode right now.)
