I've been Twittering for awhile now. I don't even know if I can adequately explain what it is but I'll give it a go. Basically, it's a social networking platform and you have 140 characters to "talk". In that space you might tell folks what you're doing, what you're thinking, solicit an opinion, bare your soul, make a wisecrack (if you're super observant this might be funny in a minute), or issue a public service announcement. Really, the possibilities are endless.
For me, it's just a fun place to hang out when I have a few minutes to sit down at the computer. It's especially fun because my BFFs hang out there with me.
I just did a search of my most recent "tweets" so you could see what I've been up to the last few days. Pretend you're interested, okay?
Argh. Meant to book a flight last night...started watching a movie and forgot...price jumped up $85 today. SO frustrating.
Borrowed my neighbor's Dyson for a test run. I'm in love. I only "thought" my carpets were clean before.
You may be asking yourself what the point of knowing all this useless information is. Yeah, I wondered that for awhile too and arrived at the conclusion that it really is pointless and another huge way to waste time on the internet.
However, if it weren't for Twitter, I wouldn't know that:
@carpoolqueen and @lavidacoffeegal are are spending the day together with their kiddos--including lunch, a movie, and texting simultaneously (because they're cool like that).
@whimzie's dad started a new med today and she's digging travis cottrell and christy nockels new music these days. oh, and her vaccum doesn't suck. ;)
@blessedbyhim is a master shredder and left jillian in the dust to do some body sculpting. she's also reading the gospel of john and thinks 65 degrees is brrrrrrrr.
@bearsandbelles hasn't been feeling so great and is worried about her sister.
@hisgirl wakes up thinking about Chipotle and has been TWICE this week. she also had a date with her husband and has a mountain of laundry to tackle today.
@dancingintherain is taunting me with her trip to Chipotle too. she had to run for cover this week since they had some crazy storms and tornado warnings. she also loves her dyson. (wonder if she was dancin' in the rain as her blog title suggests?)
@timh likes nutella on his croissants and thinks chocolate milk is the perfect post-run snack. if it weren't for him, i also wouldn't know of the wonderfulness of blueberry Z-bars or white chocolate macadamia nut Clif bars either.
@jewelsinmycrownsomeday bought new workout clothes and has some super FUN weekend plans!
@sliceoflife has been really quiet this week, but she chimed in that she doesn't love her miele canister vacuum.
See what ya'll are missing if you're not twittering? Anyone want to join us on the dark side? It really is a Tweet life. ;)
UPDATE: Carpoolqueen sent me a tweet with a link to this interesting article about Twitter. Read it if you have time...it's pretty good!
