Twitter - I've finally gone and signed up

I've finally bowed to the pressure of keeping up with the world of media and signed up to Twitter as 'FourFootTall' no idea if this is a good name or not but I couldn't bring myself to be EmmaBowler2... 2 no thanks!

As part of the signing up process I earmarked 12 people to 'Follow'. I read a few of their Tweets and quickly realised that writing them must be more of an art than it first appears. Certainly some of the Tweets make no sense whatsoever whilst others did look interesting because they had something worthwhile to say.

I'm still contemplating what on earth I'm going to say but perhaps it will all fall into place at some point, I'm still a novice after all.

What's very bizarre is that even though I haven't submitted a Tweet yet or completed my profile I have a follower, how does that work? Perhaps it is all in a name.
