I don't want to sound like I am totally out of it but you know that thing called twitter? I don't get it. I joined it but then I didn't add anyone I know because I figured I can already see what they are saying on facebook. So then I added a bunch of news sources-which isn't very helpful since I watch Brian Williams almost religiously (but really get my info. from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert). Then I added a bunch of "housewives" of various places who basically retweet how much people love them. Actually, their tweets make me like them and their shows less. I added a bunch of celebrities but although I love Russell Crowe, I am not really interested in his daily exercise routine. I don't care how many kilometers he walked because I am an American and don't know what a kilometer is. Every once in a while I tweet something important. A couple of weeks ago I tweeted to win a reading from the Long Island Medium. I didn't win. I thought my twitter feed was so #boring that I joined a whole bunch of anything I can think of. Then I few people started following me. I think they wanted me to buy something? I felt obligated to post something so I retweeted a giant angora bunny picture from George Takai.
So, what am I missing? Was I supposed to look for my friends? Am I supposed to search by hashtags? Was it always called a hashtag or did twitter invent that? What happened to "pound sign"?I have to say, that I do feel a bit left out on the # thing. I kind of want to put them on my facebook updates or in sarcastic conversation.
The twitterverse is huge and I am missing out!!! I don't get it! Anyone? #help #missingout #yeahforhashtags #bunniesruledogzdrool #McFlurry #Squirtford #gotthatoutofmysystem #veryannoyingtotypewithnospaces
