So Far, Al Gore Is Terrible At Twitter

Five updates.

Since Al Gore announced proudly that he was becoming a member of the Twitter community, there’s been great interest in following any personal notes he might drop along the way. Unfortunately, he’s not really into tweeting — yet. The latest entry we have from November 9th says, “I’m advocating a US goal of 100% carbon-free electricity in 10 years. If you are interested in the plan, check today’s NYT op-Ed on it.” Problem is, Al doesn’t apparently know how to use TinyUrl and there’s no link. Attempting to find the informative piece through the Times is a nightmare. Google, as usual, is your best bet.

Throw us a line here, Al. And man, what’s up with the depressing black background?

Thankfully, I have high hopes that the former Veep’s tweets have nowhere to go but up. Let me just say that I sincerely hopes he uses the service to his advantage. With over 20,000 followers, there’s massive potential here to turn people on to new ideas, green products, and environmental topics. I’d be willing to bet a great majority of those followers check their ‘tweets’ every day. When Al types, the Twitter community is sure to listen.

By the way, for those that haven’t already checked it out — Al runs a blog as well. His latest entry is on a study that suggests the Mayan civilization may have collapsed due to environmental disasters.

Don’t forget — the Razz also likes to Tweet! Thanks to the beautiful efforts of our Twittering pro Alli, we update all the time on things happening on the site and beyond. Check us out here and follow along. We would love to return the favor!
