Twitter: WTF

I'm a young guy, up on all the new gadgets and technology, but I don't get Twitter. WTF is the point? I've been trying really hard: getting the app on my phone, connecting with my friends who already have it, I even try to tweet every once in a while. While we're on it, can the word "tweet" be any gayer? Yes it could: if it was being fucked by the word fagalicious while salad tossing a fairy.
Everyone is talking about Twitter. Politicians are twittering, celebrities are twittering, respectable media outlets are twittering... My local news station has a twitter. Why the fuck do they need to Twitter? And everyone's talking about "Who's tweeting what?" or "Did you know they were tweeting during..." Why do I care? It's 140 characters! Not 140 words, 140 characters!

I check my twitter almost as much as my Facebook. Which is a lot. That's sad, but at least I know what I'm doing with my Facebook. I don't do anything interesting, so what do I tweet about? Should I be tweeting about having nothing to tweet about?

Apparently no one does anything of interest. How do I know? Because they tweet about nothing. No insight. Nothing cool or interesting. At least I'm nice enough to spare my friends the agony of refreshing their page just to find out that I'm doing nothing with my life. People tweet about sitting around and wishing they had a life. How original! Why don't you go out and fucking make a friend that you can talk to other than online? It's called human interaction.

I'll be the first to admit it, I'm a product of the media and popularity among my peers. I play with my iPhone, I go on Facebook 100 times a day, and yes, while I don't get it, I have a Twitter. And it's another form of technological crack that I have to keep using because people tell me to. Oh Peer Pressure!

So I will continue to act like grandpa until I finally get what the big deal is. And the worst part? I know I'm going to tweet about this blog as soon as I'm done.

That being said, I'm NRCallie on Twitter. Be my friend. Maybe you'll help me understand the damn thing.


  1. Following you on Twitter now :) Us bloggers have to stick together! I actually wrote a whole post about Twitter too except I was a lot more excited about it than you are hahah. Actually, I think my post was more about Shia LaBeouf on Twitter than Twitter itself...Ok random babbling. Anyways, feel free to follow me on Twitter too :)
