Toss me a loincloth and meet my friend, Wilson May 8, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — aggieonboard @ 12:14 pm

I don’t care if I’m the last holdout on Earth, I refuse to go anywhere near the clusterf*ck that is Twitter. I will never type the address or follow someone like a misguided lemming. And I absolutely REFUSE to add to my vernacular the inane term that I believe denotes the actual post someone makes to their page or whatever-I-don’t-know-but-I-heard-Diane-Sawyer-say-it-and-that’s-just-wrong (hint: it’s the sound a bird makes). Shudder.

I know this might offend some of my Twitter-happy readers, but how freaking narcissistic do you have to be to think people need a constant play-by-play of the daily minutiae that is your life? I myself am guilty of the occasional status update on Facebook, but that’s different. I’m not sure how, but it is. Also, I’ m aware that I have to be pretty self-centered to have a blog,  but people tell me all the time that I should and that’s it’s funny and that I have nice shiny hair.

If you need me, Wilson the volleyball and I will be surfing blogs (including yours) on my Google Reader which I just learned how to use.  Yeah, I know that’s pathetic. Shut your face. *

*I was going to say “why don’t you go ____ about it” but honestly, internets, I couldn’t even bring myself to type it. I HATE THAT WORD. Besides, there’s always room for more well-played ‘shut your face’ directives in the world.

    I like Twitter. I use it less for things like “I am now eating a sandwich” than for thoughts and weird stuff that’s way too short to justify a blog post. It’s not that much different from facebook statuses, except that people would remove me from their feeds if I updated on facebook as much as I do on Twitter.

    Sometimes I look at the Twitter of a guy who writes a webcomic, and it looks like he and his friends can have these big, multi-way conversations. I think that would be the ideal way to use it, but I don’t have enough friends on Twitter for that to happen.

    I am one of those who thinks you are hilarious. I love reading your blog and find myself feeling giddy when I discover you’ve updated. And you do have shiny hair. I’m certain of it.

    I’m with you! I don’t get Twitter. I do have FB and I update my status a lot but Twitter seems a little too much. At least I’m not the only one not loving Twitter! LOL

    You made me laugh. No chance you live in Alabama and want to be my friend?

    Interesting Twitter pages do not have “the constant play-by-play of the daily minutiae” which you described. I post things I find funny, and I am fine going days between posting a tweet. A far cry from being narcissistic.

    But hey, way to take a stand!
