At last night's Einstein Simplified show, I handed out a flyer inviting the audience to join Twitter before next Tuesday. It will be my turn to emcee and I want to try taking suggestions from the audience via social media. I often find it difficult to hear the people in the back of the room, which gave me the idea to have them text their various nouns, relationships, locations and Scenes From a Hat directly to my computer.

At the end of the show, I went from table to table picking up discarded flyers. It made me think that not too many of the people there last night rushed home to sign up for Twitter. Instead of trying to convert the bar crowd, maybe I can persuade some of Knoxville's active Twitterers to "tweetup" at Patrick Sullivan's on Tuesday night.

At least I can count on my lovely wife. She signed up for a Twitter account with the express purpose of using it to submit ideas on Tuesday. Earlier tonight I was her Twitter tutor. I'm no expert but I was able to explain Twitpic, hashtags and retweets. I'm sure I left out more than I included. What else should I have taught her?

If they were like me, it was that I had the hardest time spelling: EinsteinImprov. This even coming from a Recovering Nuclear Engineer where Einstein is treated like a Celebrity (and Neils Bohr is NOT a Bore).

It could stem from the fact that I am lazy, and there was no where in this post to copy and past EinsteinImprov into follow Twitter.

Perhaps, they are all following EinstienImprov?

be sure to tell her how to block creepy followers. Some "girl" started following me on twitter today who was going to give me advice about BJ's. And I don't mean the warehouse club retailer.
