Hello my name is ______ and I am a twitter addict

Two years ago I signed up for this website called Twitter. A few of my friends used it and I would see their postings on Facebook. So I decided to give it a try. I dabbled just like they did but after about a month I forgot about it. Then over a year ago for some reason I picked it back up and I haven’t stopped since. I’ll tweet about just about everything. Want to know how I feel about the weather? There’s a post for that. Want to know where I am? There’s a post for that. (thanks also to foursquare) Want to know what song I’m listening to? There’s a post for that! #nowplaying “I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues” – Elton John. Yes. That is actually what is playing currently.

I believe right now I have about 35,000 tweets. Yes…that is nothing compared to some. But it’s a lot compared to many. A few weeks ago I decided to take a “Twitter break” and enjoy my Saturday “Twitter Free” some twitter friends contacted me to ask if I was ok since I hadn’t posted all day. See….I’m an addict. I told them I was fine. That I was making that day social media free day and trying to remember what life was like before twitter.

I have made some amazing off twitter friends thanks to twitter. Some I have gone to sporting events with. Some I have gone on vacation with. Some have become some of my closest friends and currently know more about me than friends I’ve had for over 20 years.

Believe it or not Twitter has also caused me heartbreak. But that’s another blog post all together. Oh boy….that one should be FUN!

I think today is going to be a twitter free day. I need one every once in a while. I might sneak a peek at my @ replies to see if anyone posts anything to me. But I’m not planning on posting anything to the main feed. This, of course, is easier said than done. I have a twitter app on my work computer, on my phone, and of course my computer at home. The only time I can’t access twitter is when I’m in the subway.

How long can I go twitter free before I get the shakes and start to go through withdrawal?

    Welcome to the world of Blogging. Although Twitter is like a “micro blog”. I am a newbie to twitter and your Twitter world, but I felt your absence yesterday. You’re one of my favorite Twitter “friends” because you post every day stuff.Example:

    “Guy just on on the bus with “Five Guys”. smeels good, I might have to mug him” hahahaha

    Since I don’t have many Twitter friends the ones I do are beat writers and Yankee fans that only post Yankee stuff. I like reading people’s everyday thoughts.

    Good job helpingmy day at work go by so much faster.

    Good luck with the Blog!

  2. Welcome to the blog world Ms. Thing….looking forward to more!

  3. Wow, that’s alot of posts. I haven’t even broken the 1000 marker and I thought I was posting too much. Started using Tweetdeck today, it’s actually pretty cool. What’s your twitter name?
