Nonsense from the Heart

Twitter Thoughts January 10, 2012

I never believed when Twitter emerged that I’d be one to sign up.   But I recently did.  And now about six months later, I am slightly addicted to Twitter.  And Instragram.  What’s wrong with that?! 

I’m still new at this Twitter thing.  What’s a ‘DM’?!  Ooohh.  I mainly use it to follow.  I don’t have hundreds and hundreds or thousands and thousands of followers, and I don’t think I ever will.  That’s fine with me.  What do I have or who am I to make your life better or make you laugh or whatever anyway? Nada.  Zip.  My tweets are just nonsense from the heart.

It has been enjoyable following the little over a hundred people (They quickly add up!) I have been following in this short time.  Much talented people.  Amazes me so with the talent out there.  Much useful information.  Much laughter.  Oh how I love the laughs that have been generated in my much bulging belly.  Keeps me sane.

What I don’t enjoy seeing is how cruel people can be. It’s so shocking to see how followers callously insult the people that they’re following!  Outrightly telling them that they suck, they don’t know what they’re saying and the like.  Why do you choose to follow them then?!  I’m new but there is an Unfollow button, right?  Ridiculous in my nobody opinion. 

I know it’s just Twitter but it appears there are thin boundaries.  People acting any way they want, thinking there are no repercussions, no feelings being hurt, that people aren’t human beings.  Seriously got the good and the not so good with this tool.  I just hope to see mostly the good and keep on laughing.  And I still won’t sign up for Facebook. 🙂

    It’s the anonymous nature of Twitter that makes people feel like they can say what they want. Things are more tame in FB and G+ since real names are typically used. Part of the id, ego, and super-ego of social media.
