I finally joined twitter yesterday. And I am not yet sure how I feel about it.
I gather that this form of social media is a must for bloggers. But it feels very, very alien to me. I know that is
possibly, probably (oh ok then is) because it is new (to me). But it really does feel strange and uncomfortable. All those #tags somehow remind of algebra from my long ago school days. My brain panics, my heart races and me no definitely likey. 😦
But it’s not just me. My computer is uncomfortable with twitter too. I know this because when my twitter account is open and signed into, anything else I want to do on the computer “flies out the window”. My cursor won’t work, I get no respond white-out screens and more “script running” messages than is probably healthy (for me or the computer). My stress levels rise and although I am not normally an angry violent Slizzy, I do have a great urge to throw the computer out of the window, (no wonder my computer is uncomfortable).
But don’t worry I won’t get that desperate. There has been enough flying debris over the last few hours with all those horrific winds.
So at the moment I am logged out of twitter and me and my computer are getting along just fine.
The positive thing I have noticed though, since starting this twitter malarkey, is that my followers on my face-book page have increased by 3. And my commentators and status liker’s went up by an astonishing 30% overnight too. Although of course I can’t be sure that twitter is responsible. I would like to think my quirky personality, wit, humour and life-stance have a lot to do with that.
So I will battle on with tweeting. At least for a while. I would be a twit not too really.
Tell me what gets up your nose and makes you go into panic mode. I would love to know.
Anyway bye for now I am off to tweet this post to the gaspingly waiting world.
Love ‘n’ Hugs from Slizzy
