fudgegraphics is on twitter

It took some self-convincing but I finally gave in and joined Twitter. I’m not sure how much I will use it and whether it’s really worth it or just another social site to waste time on. If I believed what I read about it I’ll be hooked in about 2 weeks time. Only time will tell. Anyways, you can follow me here.
