Tweet Tweet

Okay, I did it. I broke down and joined twitter. So far I still don't really "get" it though. I think I have to figure out a way to update from my phone. Otherwise I have to sign on to my computer just to let people know that, I don't know, the person sitting to my left has visible nose hairs or it's still impossible to get into Milk & Honey in NYC! (It is, by the way. Not impossible, but pretty durn close.)

The point is...THIS IS ALL KHY'S FAULT!! (Sorry, Khy...I had to shout you out.) Khy blogs over at freneticreader.blogspot.com and we were put in touch by the lovely Suzanne Young, author of the forthcoming Naughty List. (Incidentally, I woke up this morning and saw that Khy had posted something SO NICE about Before I Fall. Yay!! Thanks, Khy.) Anyway, during our correspondence she mentioned she was obsessed with twitter...so I decided to give it a shot. She has already been incredibly nice and helpful and sweet, and even taught me one of my favorite new emoticons: xD. I'm not sure exactly what this is meant to express but in my mind it is a devilish, gleeful grin.

Point is...you can blame her. And the fact that I love the word "tweet." I mean, for real. Or you can just go follow me at www.twitter.com/OliverBooks.

I'm glad you broke down thanks to Khy. :) I guess I will be seeing you on Twitter soon! And for the record, xD is probably the best emoticon. Ever. Good choice.

Ha...am I right about what xD is supposed to mean?? I know, even looking at it just makes me start giggling like a maniac.

Steph Su said...

I couldn't really explain it to you because it would involve actual facial expressions that are not quite expressable via the typed word... but I'd say "devilishly gleeful" is pretty accurate!

Lauren Oliver said...

awesome...glad I nailed it! been feeling devilishly gleeful all week so that works for me...

Khy said...

I often use "xD" in place of lol. But I suppose it could be a devilish grin.

And YAY for you being on twitter! Soon you shall be as obsessed as everyone else. =D
