Hey, Twitterers, here's your chance to leave little messages for fellow readers, without the hassle of counting your characters.

On Chirps, our new page, you can leave short messages on ANY topic (at the discretion of the moderator).

I've started a few topics, but am happy to take suggestions and expand in any way you like.

If the big, heavy issues are getting you down and you just want to offer a word of support to someone, share a recipe you've just invented, tell a joke, pass along a helpful tip, or boast about a milestone in your life, go to Chirps and leave a comment. 

I'm working on ways to make it more flexible but until then, please use the Open Season post for anything that doesn't fit a category.
