Apparently, I am contactless- or close to it

So I've joined Linked In and Twitter, all excited about the networking potential of both sites.  I uploaded contacts from my mail email address, and . . .  apparently I don't know anyone.

Well that's not entirely true.  I had about 6 people on 'Linked In' who I actually knew.  On Twitter, however, only one of my contacts came up- some woman with a ridiculous name like Elvira Candyton or something.  I have no idea in what context I apparently emailed this woman at one time or another.  I did not request to follow her.

So now I am just Twittering to myself.  And that's really not any fun.  I find it hard to believe that I know NO ONE who uses Twitter.  So, friends, if you're reading this and you're on Twitter (or Linked In, for that matter) please do add me (my Twitter is, pretty predictably, SarahGuy).  I look forward to knowing your every move.
And if you aren't my friend- you've just stumbled upon this randomly- well go ahead and Twitter me too, I won't mind.  I want to network, especially with other writers.  Also, it's nice to have lots of small, quick distractions to look at when I'm experiencing a moment of writer's block.  In fact, perhaps I'll go follow Elvira Candyton afterall.  Maybe she's up to something interesting!
