After getting your feet wet with twitter, you will want to check out twittervision, which tracks new tweets (those would be posts to twitter) across the globe. Ease your twittering using Firefox add-ons to post from the search box or from the address bar of your browser, or from a sidebar. If you use a Mac, download twitterific, a fantastic little widget that sits on your desktop.
And as for the meatballs: 1 lb. ground chuck, a microplaned shallot, an egg, about two or three tbs matzo meal, pinches of oregano + thyme + and basil, and salt and pepper. Mix 'em up, brown 'em well, simmer in red sauce for at least half an hour, and serve with spaghetti. Don't let Mario Batali tell you not to eat meatballs with your spaghetti because that's not now how the Italians do it. This is America, baby! We eat meatballs with spaghetti here, and we gotta own it.
