Twitter Recap

Ah, Twitter.

I, like many people (I hope), still don’t know everything about it and am treating it with the same mixed amount of faux interest and curiosity as I do the H1N1 virus. People tell me it’s addicting and fun, so I listen to how they ‘tweeted’ about how good their Thanksgiving dinner was and all the silence the acticin to buy online. family endured at their dinner table because everyone was looking down at their laps texting.

It was a very…interesting story.

Although it may be a long time before I sign up for an account with which I can ‘tweet’ all day, UFC has a great web page dedicated to Twitter that keeps fans in the know with up-coming events.A� With Thanksgiving, the goings-on in the MMA world were limited, but still alive. UFC 107 preparations, Thanksgiving plans and UFC 106 recaps were most prevalent, but don’t take my word for it; check it out here.

Again, not a whole lot of news for this week, but it’s worth checking out the link above to see Jenna Jameson sitting Octagon-side at UFC 106. Pique your interest yet? No? Oh well…what do I know? I’m still a non-tweeter.
