It's really true. I ignored Twitter initially because it was described as micro-blogging. As a macro-blogger I assumed it wasn't for me. By the time I realized it was actually a new messaging protocol, all variants of my name were taken.

This sounds like a fixable problem. What would some acceptable variants of your name be? If you email me (avi@twitter.com) I will see what we can do. I'd certainly love to see you on Twitter.
