I’m Now on Twitter (crankyflier)

Damn you, Twitter. I always hated you because I didn’t see the point. I signed up long ago when my friends encouraged me to check it out. There were too many tweets about washing hair, going to the bathroom, or other completely uninteresting and useless drivel. I walked away.

But now I’m back. I was asked by someone if I would post notifications for my blog posts on Twitter so others could follow me. I figured that would be easy enough. And now I’m hooked. So if you’d like to follow me, my username is crankyflier. I have a new widget at right that shows my recent tweets. Here’s what I’m planning to do with the account.

  • Notifications when a new blog post is ready on Cranky and BNET Travel (this will include other BNET Travel bloggers).
  • Airline news when it happens, generally followed by some brief snark
  • Responses to those who send me tweets

This may change as time goes by. If you have anything you’d like me to talk about, let me know. Oh, and if you don’t use Twitter, you can follow my Twitter RSS feed through any RSS reader. If you have no idea what Twitter is, I’d recommend running as fast as possible and not looking back. But if you’re really curious, try this Twitter explanation.

Thanks for making us one of the first people you were following then.


Welcome to Twitter. Be careful though – it can become a productivity killer.

I have compiled a list of airlines that Twitter, which I’m updating as they become known.

Cranky.. A request that I’d make.. I’d love your snark, but I DESPISE twitters letting people know that a new entry is posted… Could you split the “entry posting” tweets out into a different UID from the snarkiness?
