I’ve been doing a lot of tweeting lately. It is a phenomenon that is somewhat an anathema to my generation, but I have found that I am so much better informed than I was a week ago. Originally I had started doing it to get the word out about One Village and that still remains the focus. However, as those of you who know me, I have opinions on just about everything and Twitter gives you the opportunity to put it out there. I can retweet a story about breaking up with a friend, or scold the Kenya Google chief. In fact I find it rather addicting.
I turn 65 tomorrow. It’s a good thing. What saddens me is that my generation avoids Twitter, barely uses FB and according to the Huffington Post (yay tweets) they are becoming more and more conservative. Where did the fight go? We were the ones who demonstrated against the war, burned our bras and rocked Woodstock. Does fear and money take over for audacity and hope (thanks Barak)? Perhaps this is so. But for me, I’ll be fighting till the day I die, and probably tweeting as well.
Keep the faith y’all
