I am a Twitter twit


Gah. I have signed up to Twitter twice in the past, and each time I was left thinking, AND? Now what? What the hell is the point?  And anyway, I spend obscene amounts of time on the internet as it is, do I really need to find a way to use up even more?

But Facebook is so last season and Twitter is the new cool thing. Well, actually it is probably way past cool and on its way out, but that is the time when I usually decide I like things.

You know lava lamps? How they were cool in the 60's? And then they had that revival in the 90's? And then you only saw them in random shops selling dragon fountains and fake flowers? Well I got a lava lamp for Christmas this year and I freaking love it. I have always wanted one and I don't care if they are random store rejects. 

So back to Twitter. I am going to give it one last bash. Everybody who is cool and everybody who just "is", is on Twitter. And I am a sheeple and I want to become a tweeple so could some kind person please explain the point of Twitter to me? 

And could all cool people or people who think I am cool or any random bergie who wants to, please tell me how to find you and what I must do next?

I am a lost little sheeple looking for some guidance out of the rocky ravine that is my ignorance. Please shepherd me to wisdom. Or to a mental facility. Whichever you feel is more appropriate.

oohh.. i'm on Twitter.. does that make me cool, lol!!! Hope you have as much fun there as we do, it can be fun, boring, entertaining, frustrating.. all pretty 'cool' actually.

Have a good weekend!

Gah - can't help, I'm afraid. Facebook will soon be retro and that means it will be cool again...

As for lava lamps, I love them!

Grrr.

I just joined - just to protect my username, obviously.

AND? Now what? What the hell is the point? And anyway, I spend obscene amounts of time on the internet as it is, do I really need to find a way to use up even more?

Hang on - isn't that what you said?

Look for me?

No clue.

Wait ... you'll soon be hooked =)

It just takes a bit of time - slow and seemingly pointless at first but once you get enough followers and followees things get interesting.

Glad to have you in Twitterville!

So, you need to push through the useless barrier, until your brain becomes so numb that you can't see the barrier anymore? I'd rather chew on a car tyre.

Twitter is growing on me bigtime. It's like super quick blog posts, and far less hassle than Facebook.

Plus I like how you can have random chats with just about anyone, it makes for interesting convo - even if it's a bit disjointed.

Being Brazen said...

Im not on twitter - I dont see the appeal...maybe Im just ignorant too

Dash said...

less than one hour after my (Still strongly held belief) comment about chewing on a car tyre, my mate told me that for his latest web project I need to be on twitter.

Apparently friendship beats common sense, so add me, or follow me, or do what people do.
