I tried it and I just don’t get it. I mean, I really did try and yes, I’m still a user…I didn’t totally quit. But I know my last update was about a week ago and with only the ten or so people I’m following…I’ve been lost in the pile up that happened since then. I even had the twitter gadget thingy on my Google homepage and found it mildly interesting to peruse what people were saying. But I still don’t know what RT means…is that Read This? I guess I need the Twiticon or whatever you call it.
What I really want to know is this. How do people find something to update about constantly? What do you do? Sit at your desk all day, read every news site, and tweet any tidbit that comes your way? If that’s it, then how do you have time to do anything else? You know…like…have a coffee, chat with your neighbour, go to the bathroom…stuff like that. I mean with the number of updates I’ve seen collect in one day, its a miracle these Twitterers don’t have thrombosis in their legs!
Or is it that I have not learned the knack for making every mundane activity in my life a Tweetable event? And maybe this is where I have failed in Twitterworld. So let me attempt…if I pass you tell me.
“Drinking water from Thermos water bottle. Awesome hydration! RT: http://thewsreviews.blogspot.com/2009/02/thermos-quick-charge-bottle.html.”
So even if you think my Tweet is passable…know this – It took me a good 15 minutes to find anything about that particular bottle on the web. If I need to get in…say…five or more tweets an hour…I’m screwed. So I probably failed there anyway. I’m a Twitscrace. Sigh.
I don’t know how you Twitterers do it…but please don’t send me a tweet with a suggestion because I’ll likely miss it. Somebody just email me please or better yet…CALL ME!! Thanks.
