The long-awaited day has come.

Twitter, the 200 million user microblogging service, has filed for its initial public offering. Fittingly, the only public acknowledgement came in the form of a simple tweet.

"Long-awaited"? Wait, people actually waited for this?

Must not have a lot going on in their lives.

It's possible that dealing with my many grandchildren has led me to favor patient explanation rather than insults. How would they ever learn manners otherwise? ;-)

I encounter a distressingly large number of people in forums that seem to have missed the benefits of a patient grandparent. Perhaps that's why I rather like Twitter - it's hard to squeeze off a really nasty insult in 140 characters. *shrugs*
