So, I got a twitter (Algeh_T)

I gave up and got a twitter account because I realized that I had no current contact info for some of my friends and it seemed less obnoxious than facebook (among other things, I generally click out of a sign-up process if it requires me to specify a gender). If you're interested, I'm on there as Algeh_T .

(I have no idea why anyone else would want the username Algeh - I use it as a nickname because it's what I got when a non-native speaker of English misunderstood and tried to write down my initials "L.J." as a name once. I'd just decided to go by my initials instead of my name because I was tired of the "Linnea. L - I - N - N - E - A. Thank you. No, it's not Hawaiian. It's Swedish and traditional in my family." speech that I have to give pretty much every time I introduce myself. Unfortunately, the first person I tried "L.J." on was a native German speaker, and I went back to the Linnea Speech after that debacle.)

Right now, I'm planning to import my tweets daily into LJ and then make those entries private a day or so later when I get around to it. I'd prefer to make them private immediately (I'm importing them for back-up reasons), but LJ doesn't seem to let you set a minimum security just for those posts. I am not impressed, but I suppose if LJ were being impressive I wouldn't have needed to get a twitter in the first place.
