I love Twitter, and I might be addicted.
Fortunately – or unfortunately – I have to work all day and so can’t access Twitter until I get home around six. Even then, I don’t dwell on Twitter Lane as many people seem to do; I just love to walk up and down the Twittersphere and look into people’s windows every chance I get.
I think we choose our Twitter friends as we choose our blogroll; someone interests us in some way, so we add him/her. Oh, sure, there are people who add and follow anybody and everybody, but I’m not that girl, either. I have to be interested in the potential Twitter friend, and the potential Twitter friend must have a blog. MySpace doesn’t count.
That’s right, that’s right, you read it right: I don’t follow anyone who doesn’t have a personal blog.
I also don’t follow anyone who uses a lot of profanity or too much text code.
Perhaps I’m an odd Twitterer, but I don’t really think so. But, just what’s the Twitter attraction for someone like me? Answer: many things!!!
There are some really nice people following me, and BEING followed by me. I find their tweets interesting, and I like to join in when I can. I also discovered that people on Twitter are helpful and knowledgeable: a lovely combination indeed. I asked a techie question (sort of) last night, and a whole lot of people were kind enough to tell me what to do. I appreciated that a lot. A WHOLE lot! I took their advice and my problem was solved, too.
To sum up: Twitter is cool. The people there are nice. I like Twitter.
Oh, I’m sorry, did you say something? I was looking at these really sweet pictures a Twitter friend sent me; they’re fascinating.
Mmm, Twitter. Love it.
