POST-SUMMARY-HERE


Okay, so some of us are addicted to Twitter. Let's admit it. I have friends that have four different accounts to disperse information about different subjects. Sometimes we get caught up in the fact that it's just sending 140 characters at a time when we prepare our latest tweet.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Social technology. It's is great! But like all things, sometimes we get caught up just a bit too much in this realm of life.

That includes myself.

That's why this week's web pick of the Week has to do with finding out how much you actually spend a day tweeting. The website is called Tweetwasters, and it calculates how much time a day you spend tweeting.

I spend about an hour a day on that darn social networking! That doesn't even include time looking around and finding information! Check it out- http://www.tweetwasters.com.

It's Tuesday and that means another update in the Country Music Twittersphere! This week's Tweet of the week goes to the hilarious Brad Paisley who is not only pumped up that his West Virginia Mountaineers are in the Final Four, but that his tour name is set in stone. His series of tweets of the top ten names that were considered for the new tour name is our tweet of the week.

Here is a list of Tweets you might of missed that are must see:
