As a writer, I feel I should like Twitter. Of all the platforms, Twitter seems the most suited for writers.
I’ve just never been much of a social media user. I don’t always know what to say or share, especially online. Sometimes I think about sharing something but then stop myself for some reason.
In a way, tweeting is similar to blogging. I guess I’d rather spend more time writing or reading.
Also, there aren’t enough hours in the day to be everywhere and to do everything.
Perhaps I need to tweet about something unrelated to me. I’m not one to share personal details about myself in real life or on social media.
I’m better at writing than I am at posting. I have no problem drafting a tweet. But sending it out into the world is a different story.
It’s not easy to create content on a consistent basis. It’s even harder when these days almost anyone can criticize you.
I don’t know if I’ll ever get into Twitter. Don’t get me started on Instagram. I suck at social media. Big surprise, I know. So kudos to everyone who doesn’t.
Some days, I wonder if I was born in the wrong era. I need a time machine. Take me back to the days before social media existed.
I’m not ashamed to say I know very little about a lot of things in this world.
I didn’t know you could undo your retweets on Twitter until today.
Did you know that? Of course, you did.
Where have I been? Not on Twitter clearly.
You learn something new every day when you know almost nothing.
It’s difficult to come up with an accurate title for every blog post. I can’t always be perfect. Although I must admit the title “Twitter Sins With Real Life Equivalents” isn’t half bad if I do say so myself. Anyhow, I know this post is a bit different from my usual ones focused more on writing and/or blogging. Just wanted to switch it up a bit to avoid boring you. Enjoy.
Spamming someone with DMs, short for direct messages.
More like texting someone one too many times.
Following someone only to un-follow them later and re-follow them shortly after.
This is equivalent to dating someone, breaking up with them, and making up with your him or her.
Spamming your followers by sending tweet after tweet with a few seconds in between each.
Real life scenario: never shutting up.
The above aren’t exactly sins. If only they were…
Twitter is low commitment, a one night stand.
WordPress is high commitment, a life-long marriage.
