Twittering? Tweeting? Twerping? Whatever.


Okay. So I finally capitulated and created a twitter account (see sidebar). I'm still trying to figure out what the point of it is.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why anyone would be interested in what I am doing at any given moment.

Except perhaps the crew scheduling department at my airline. Those sneaky little rats are not above using any means available to track down errant crewmembers and randomly assign them a flight to Nicaragua.



So that's the deal. I'll twitter/tweet/twerp/twaddle until someone out there (*ahem* you know who you are) uses it for evil. And then I'm outta here.

In the meantime, don't let my self-esteem go down the toilet again. Follow me. Or whatever.

Oh, and if you want a good laugh, go check out the.effing.librarian's twitter saga.

  1. OH NO...you crossed over to the dark side!!! I thought the same as you, who the hell would care about the mundane life I lead?!

    I've never been strong against peer pressure, so I'll probably sign up, mostly to wreak havoc on someone (ahem, wink wink)!!

  2. You tip me off and no penguin for you on Christmas morning!

  3. I thought the same. Still more or less do. On the other hand, I'm interested in what the publishing industry is saying and they're on Twitter, tweeting away.

  4. I don't get it, either. But I do it sometimes because it's kinda fun to try to be clever in 140 characters or less. Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Ok so I signed on as BethFishReads. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to find people and follow them. ARGH. I'm usually really good at this stuff.

  6. I took the plunge myself yesterday.

  7. Well I cannot possibly be clever in 140 words or less.

    Come to think of it, I cannot even be clever in 140 words or more.

    I do find it a bit voyeuristic, I must say.

    I've been on Twitter for a couple of months now and LOVE it. How often do you get to chit chat with authors? Lot's of publishing news as well. I enjoy the back talk about other people's posts, books, etc.

  9. Yes, I could have Twittered this...lol!

    Wanted to drop in and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! :)

  10. Beth - I know...I'm fiddling around with it, too. You'd think there'd be a better way to find people than just your email account. ???

    Natasha - I'm starting to think the thing might grow on me. :)

    J.Kaye - thanks for the holiday wishes...back at ya. And thanks for the Twitter welcome!

  11. I'll have to look into the twitter thing, I confess I have not been able to figure out the point of it.

    Crew schedule does not have my cell, email, nothing but my home phone number. You can be sure they would find a way to use extra info for evil.

    A very Happy Thanksgiving to you, I hope you are home with your family!

  12. I still have no idea what twitter is. I'm afraid to find out because I'm sure it's just another time suck. LOL

  13. Carey and Anna - yes, it's a time suck, that's for sure, but a fun one. Kinda like gossiping behind the scenes, ha.

    Carey - I'll be in ABQ, but you know what they say: no rest for the wicked. Can't complain...as of Friday night, I'm off for 23 days straight. Woo-hoo (!).

  14. I am still resisting myself, simply because I already spend far too much time parked in the chair in front of my computer doing forum and blog stuff, let alone starting another time consuming computer related thing to my list!

  15. I'm still getting used to it too. Haven't figured out how to find people without using my address book or inviting them through email. I've just been finding my book buddies through other's pages.

    I also haven't figured out the response thing very well. Most book bloggers especially don't just update on their life but on what's new at their blog too.

  16. Everyone's getting a Twitter account! What's your ID Michele - did I miss that???

  18. Oh yeah, it's unreasonably addictive. I can't believe I fell into the trap but I think I've updated something like 1500 times now, and I can't believe anyone is still following.
