Kris N wants to keep up with you on Twitter

out of desperation and frustration, i decided to invite all 950+ of my gmail contacts to twitter. 3 people actually joined up, but that wasn't the best part:

when i checked my gmail inbox 4 hours later, i almost had a heart attack when i saw 126 new emails.

my heart started beating again when i realised they were all bounce notifications for the slew of invites i sent out.

i then checked my other email addresses and realised i had invited each of my online avatars too (i have 10+ email addresses at last count).

i had also invited the managers who were responsible for hiring me (both at my current and last jobs)

i had also invited all my ex-clients from my freelance web design business.

i had also invited my mom. (that required a half an hour explanation from me about what "those bird things" are and why i sent them to her)

i had invited customer support from all the banks i have accounts with.

i had invited customer support from all the isps i had ever used.

best of all, i invited my own blog. to twitter. presumably, to tweet.

here's the post, pasted from my auto-submitted drafts:
