I just passed 1500 Twitter followers. I’m in the process of trying to determine if that is impressive, not impressive or just lame. It took me a while to reach this point so I’m going to go with “Impressive.” The nuances of Twitter still escape me. When I go to the site I kind of feel like I’m looking at a stock ticker scrolling by. Most of the information doesn’t make much sense to me. Some of what is written is starting to make sense. I have figured out what some of the short forms mean. A lot of it, though, is like some secret code only certain people are meant to understand. Take for example: “Not real http://wp.me/p4MLK0-22” . I guess you have to go to their web site to figure it out. But there is nothing here that makes me want to know what it is about. Then there are the funny ones: “Perry is an idiot. If brains were dynamite he wouldn't have enough blow his nose.” I don’t know who Perry is but he seems to have issues. I feel like I’m sitting in a n airport and hear snippets of conversations as people go by like: “Nathan is driven by.. FINDING JORDIE.” I suppose that has relevance to someone. The difference is that in an airport there is a whole conversation going on and I only hear part of it. On Twitter, many times what I read is all there is to the conversation. Here’s one I think is about a book. Actually, I hope it is about a book. “The perfect #BeachRead filled with #vampires, strippers & escorts.” That’s the whole message. It doesn’t tell you what the book is so I’m not sure how you would know where to find this information if you happen to like that combination. Then there are the people you are glad do not have your address: “I get really jealous of people who are happy and it's an issue.” Right. Ok. How about this one: “Ok so you made your bed and now you have to sleep in it....but don't make it worse by folding hospital corners.” What is that supposed to mean? Might be too deep for me. How about this one: “Life is pain, anyone who says differently is selling something.” Interesting point of view. Then we go back to the mysterious code: “My god stop getting worked up over A7X getting hacked you mongs.” Perhaps I’m dim but that one was way over my head. A final strange one is “you probably have to buy her a diamond ring or at least a cupcake.” That’s the whole message. Nothing comes before or after. Most of Twitter seems to be ads. There is not a filter so some strange posts show up from time to time. I’m slowly figuring it out but sometimes ignorance is bliss.
