We all get holiday newsletters, but how many of those single-spaced, four-page epics do you actually read? Wouldn't it be easier if people used Twitter instead? With tweets limited to 140 characters, we'd have to keep it short and sweet. Here are 10 examples of what some holi-tweets might look like:
@NWflyboys: Wow. 2009 just flew by. So did MSP. Hoping for a GPS under tree. (Already have a laptop.) No direct messages, please. No time to reply.
@SeeYouAtChurch: If you only know what we've done for the year based on our annual newsletter, you're not close enough for either of us to care more than this.
@SkolVikings: Jolly Old St. Brett has been kind to us this year. But really jealous of Twins and Gophers. We want a stadium, too. But all we get is coal.
@IOUaletter: Tom's still happy in IT. I've retrained as an EMT. Timmy aced the SAT. Suzy's in LUV. Her wedding will be in NYC. Don't forget to RSVP.
@BestFamilyEver: What a great year for the Bakers! Where do we begin? New home, new car, big job promotion. And that lottery win! Maybe you saw us on TV when (That's as much as you were going to read from that one anyway.)
@TooMuchEggnog: Things are much quieter now that Grandma's gone. We thought Santa wasn't real. But after she got pasted by that reindeer, we believe.
@PettersDirect: Please send $1 to sender c/o MN prison. $1! Retweet & ask followers to do the same! We'll be rich! Trust me! Wishing you a profitable Xmas!
@TCFstadium: Huge debut! Now, get ready for the greatest show on turf. Not the Gophers of the U. But the guys from U2: Bono, the Edge and the other 2.
@TigerBaby: Tough year. Putting my, uh, putter away for a while, if you know what I mean. Hope Nike doesn't dump me, but hey -- hello, Hooters! :-D
@OurWitsEnd: Print this. With Tom out of work and our house near foreclosure, this is the closest to a Christmas card you'll get. Twitter's still free.
