yes, I am back on twitter.
Short answer: Too many people I do business with are also on Twitter. Being off it was impossible. My bad. My Twitter page is here.

Welcome back! I enjoyed your daily updates about Alpine, having grown up in a small country town myself.
I know there's a blog post there about the psychology of presence, absence and the paranoia of impersonation :)
That's the genius of Twitter. It makes you believe you can't do without it... but slowly reels you back in.
Welcome back. You still follow me, right? ;-)
You made the right decision Hugh--we missed you.
Good! Because you were sorely missed.
Welcome back. Loved the "hacked" joke! Man, you had everyone going.
Welcome back. The Gaping Void is no more. I missed your witticism and of course not being Followed by you.
Was it really a business networking issue or are you in need of a Twittervention?
Or perhaps Twitter is simply too vital a channel not to be integrated with.
Good to have you back.. Didn't want you disappearing into your own Pan's Labyrinth..
Welcome back. Now don't overdo it this time. Hope your dad is feeling better too.
Welcome back... so what was the post about "stealing identity" all about?
twitter is perhaps the daily 'rag' of our times - good to have you back, the sharp observations always make my day, maybe now you'll follow us? http://twitter.com/twodesign
I've found my personal solution to Twitter addiction is to limit the time spent there to the first hour of the day (Catching up on email, RSS, Twitter etc)
And then avoiding it until at least lunchtime, or the very last hour of the working day (The U.S is waking up around then!)
Occasionally I get too engrossed, particularly in conversation, but generally it works fairly well.
