I have an announcement to make. I’ve officially lost my Twitter virginity.
I’m not sure how I feel about it. I’ve avoided it so successfully, I had sort of written it off as unnecessary. But apparently, Twitter is cool. Apparently, Twitter is where all the action is. Apparently, as someone with a blog, I should not only have a Twitter account (which I now do), but I should be using it regularly (which I now have all kinds of good intentions to do).
Problem is, I don’t really get it. What the heck are those hashmark things for? And all those @ symbols everywhere? Is a tweet like a Facebook status? Cuz I can do that. And I’m assuming a retweet is like forwarding someone else’s Facebook status to all of your friends? Is there any interaction on Twitter, or is it all just throwing stuff out there?
Yeah, I know, I can read the stupid help pages. I’m just irritated that I’m so flummoxed by something that that even kooky Charlie Sheen knows how to use. I mean, how am I supposed to win radically in MY underwear before my first cup of coffee if I can’t even figure out how to tweet properly?
I’ve been assured that Twitter is confusing at first, but once I get the hang of it, it’ll be awesome. I hope so.
So for you more experienced Tweeters, I’m officially inviting you to follow my blog. (Is that how you proposition someone? Please Twitter me? Tweet me? Blah.) My name thingamajiggy is @MotherhoodnMore.
Or, I think, if I did this right, you can click on the button here:
Huh, well I just clicked on it myself, and it looks like it’s actually a way for you to share this post. That’s cool, too. So much to learn.
Looking forward to . . . uh . . . following each other. See, this language is all very awkward. I feel like I’m asking for a first date or something.
Tweet! Tweet! (That part’s fun, though.) 🙂
