A short note on my tweeting

Marc Comtois

As Justin mentioned earlier this week, I'm now on Twitter. I've long toyed with the idea because, frankly, I often think that sometimes all I need to say on something can be done in a pithy sentence or two and not paragraphs of well thought out prose. So if it seems I have been mum on this or that over the years, its mostly because my thoughts on it weren't, in my opinion, "expoundable", so to speak. (Maybe it's the engineer in me that likes all that efficiency...) However, I have expanded upon a couple of my tweets already (ie; I tweeted about Bastiat's broken windows and that idea inspired a blog post). Anyway, if you're interested in my tweets ranging on subjects far and wide, head on over to my Twitter page. After the jump is a sample of some of my recent tweets to give you an idea....

Yes, even disasters are political with these fools.
