Do you have a Twitter account? Perhaps you follow your favorite baseball team, weather reporter, or newspaper, or maybe you use Twitter for your daily dose of cute puppy pictures. There are plenty of terrific sites that give you a quick blast of information and even a smile. Plus, you can read a lot of short tweets without writing or retweeting anything.
