Daily Twitter Notes

Sometimes the day does not allow a blog post let alone write about things on my mind or I hear about like economic, political, local news (sports too).

With Twitter, you at least get some of the flavor, a flash moment during the day, of what I am thinking about. You can follow during the day or see the digest below.

Here are the highlights of my recent Twitter activity. If you want to see the full version click MN Headhunter on Twitter

August 4, 2008

  • Twins: dude from Seattle gets 6 RBI in one inning? Surely that will get on SportsCenter.
  • Twins: now given up 8 runs in the 7th.
  • Twins: been a while since they have fallen part. The 7th has not been a lucky number this evening.
  • @researchgoddess I have had some success with Twithire. Like other sites (CL), depends on location and number of people using a site.
  • Oil: Dropping $5 so far, under $120
