Twitter Bites

Yes. Twitter.
The word of the year.
A networking where you have your say in 140 characters. You get to connect to a whole lot of interesting people, you are exposed to captivating thoughts, absorbing communications, compelling opinions, fascinating things most of all, connecting to beloved celebrities.

Sounds magnetic. Doesn't it?
Being addicted to Twitter is my personal experience. As one of my friends say- Hyper Tweet mode.

I had a Twitter account since a long time, but I actually started using it near October last year, when I was trying to get over a hump. And it helped me a lot. I could get involved in engrossing tweets and for the time being lose my problems.

It was fun. I started playing again with words and tweeted a lot of original quotes and other wacky one liners. I was regaining my sense of humor. Also, I came across some amazing people over there. I was so obsessed with it that I brought 2 of my closest friends over there..

But since i have a habit of getting bored with things too easily. Twitter had its own time, and now I was getting over with it.
And this isnt the only reason. The popularity of anything brings to it a variety of people. I have recently come across some tweets that are really gross. The Fraandship requests found their way to Twitter. Not just that, those 140 characters could get so gross, I could not imagine. People tweet things like

"I havent crapped in like 3 days" and other people are replying remedies like eat bananas and all..
"I just had sex with myself and it was GREATTTTTTTT" GROSS. Simply GROSS.

And with this, my journey on Twitter is almost over. Its official now. Twitter is a home for phonies and cacophonies.

Or saying it in the Tweet Lingo, The #FAILWHALE HAS ARRIVED PERMANENTLY.

If you have lots of friends, obviously some will end up below expectations. Don't let some tweets make you stay away from something that made life easier for you few months back! Just ignore or delete off those people that are not making your social networking any fun. Make it easy for yourselves. :) *Hugs*

I have a twitter account since 2 years but i was never really active there!

Sooner or later, all these networking sites suffer this syndrome, when the hype reaches maximum...But down the line, as the hype settles, all these cheap things also die down

Hope u're doing well.Take care sweets

Btw..I answered your queries on my blog..!I abhor plagiarism too and there was a little misinterpretation of ideas there ;)

sawan said...

The definition of 'GROSS' is almost always relative. I think there will always be the case when one or other will not satify your expectations be it on Twitter, in office, at home or in life, in general.

Keep Tweeting!! :)

(Sorry, if I sounded like lecturing...)
