Twatter

I'm sorry. I don't get it. Twitter? Why?

I joined about three montsh ago and since have told the world what I am up to 22 times. A pathetic number of Twitters compared to some. Here are some of the fascinating highlights...

MistressMich...is having a Gloria Estefan moment
MistressMich...has bitten all the nails of on her left hand
MistressMich...is probably going to unsubscribe from RadioOne

FASCINATING.

In an attempt to find meaning in Twitter, I found several celebrities who I thought might have something to say for themselves - since this is apparantly the PR tool of this century. And they're all media whores. I was left, however, deflated. Take a look at these...

Britney Spears...had dinner with my dancers last night.
Denise Richards...girls are at camp..I'm catching up on emails, phonecalls.....
Moby...is in Helsinki, eating carrots.

Entries seems to fall between dull and absurd. But all envoke the same question, which rings out into the street now as I scream it at my monitor, after reading another painfully smug post by serial Twit Steven Fry...

"WHO CARES?"

I don't. Evidently. I am commiting Twitter suicide. I have the mouse ready. Don't try and stop me.

I would say, forget celebrities and start following the followers of your blog who use it. Might make more sense then.

I'm with you on this - I just don't get it.


nice blog by the way, i hope you don't mind if I take a rummage through your archives (sadly that's not a euphemism)

Twitter - Utter waste of time too short but get feeling we are all missing something as people constantly rave about it and it makes the cover of time magazine. Maybe its old age and the new young speak is acronym talk???

Just read your entire blog and don't quite know what to say except for that you're rather funny and very entertaining. I wish you luck.

I just joined Twitter and I don't get it either...
Anyway, I like your blog and your sense of humor.
