All right, all right...
Now I am going to rant about something I SO DO NOT GET: TWITTER!
What is so fun about Twitter? Why do YOU Twitter (if you Twitter)? I am so curious since I do NOT get it.
A twitter writes a few words? And then? Are people supposed to comment on that? I have been to quite a few Twitter pages and my QUESTION MARK is growing BIGGER and BIGGER. WHY?
Please inform me, because I so don’t get it.
I get that it is supposed to be some kind of mini-blog, but what can you really say in a few words? Twitter posts are shorter than your regular text message.
Why twitter when you can post more on Facebook, or on a regular blog!
I am not a member of Facebook (yet), but I do GET the whole Facebook idea now! It is fun to look up old friends, maybe write a line or two, add a comment, and, not the least, look at your friends’ pictures. I am quite sure that I will join FB very, very soon.
Right now, I am just lurking around in FB-land over Peter’s account, but that will end soon. Peter can have his own account in privacy once I get my own.
But Twitter? I don’t ever think I will get and understand that forum. I would be more than darned if I ever got an account on Twitter.
And, I cannot help but wonder; why do we feel like putting our lives out in cyber space constantly? Yes, who am I to open my mouth, I have this blog that I have zero intentions on giving up.
BUT, I get blogs; you write something that is on your mind in as MANY words as you like, you post pictures, and you get feedback from your commentators. You start building a community! Heck, look at me! How many people have I not met thru my blog!? AND, thru other blogs that I read on a regular basis.
I love it. But even I can admit that it is a tad bit narcissistic to have a page on the net. Narcissistic but FUN!
Why is it fun to micro-blog? Why not open a regular blog account instead? There one can write as much, or as little, as one wants + post pictures.
Maybe I am totally wrong and in the dark. Maybe. Maybe I just need to find the interesting aspect behind Twitter before I open my mouth.
I am very curious.
Do you Twitter?
If you do----why??
I am not trying to be ironic, nor sarcastic, I would just like to know.
All right, I am off to the hair stylist for a cut and highlights.
Have a wonderful Tuesday all Twitters and all non-twitters!!
