**Before anyone says anything, I have indeed tried Twitter, so I can do the knocking of the thing as the trying did occur. I was on it in early 2008 (roughly January-March, actively) and deleted it in early 2009.
1) I’m way subversive
2) There is really, literally, no one that cares to know everything that you do at the exact time you do it. If someone like that exists, they are called a “stalker” or “Paris Hilton’s New BFF”.
3) If you have such deeply profound thoughts that you need a platform on which to publish them as they come to you, and this occurs >10 times a day, your thoughts aren’t so profound. They probably aren’t funny, either. There are very few people with consistently funny and/or thought-provoking twitter accounts. People that are only occasionally entertaining substantially lower their goodness quotient by tweeting (ugh, tweeting) lots of insipid posts for every good post. You might be thinking, “what to do now? I have so many thoughts and nothing to do with them!” Game plan: suck it up, tell it to a friend, write it in a notebook, or get a fucking Tumblr and social network like a real man (WHATTTUUUUUUP TUMBLR BUDDAAAAYS?)
4) Saying “@DoucheyGrrl5000 yeah lollllll that was so funny” is not interesting to anyone except you and DoucheyGrrl, although it probably isn’t that interesting to her, either. Why are you publishing that to the entire world? You don’t need to pollute the internetz, your reputation, and the collective intelligence of mankind with this type of communication. What you are essentially saying is “LOOK, EVERYBODY!! I HAVE A REAL LIVE FRIEND AND I AM RESPONDING TO SOMETHING THEY SAID TO ME FIRST AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND! I AM WANTED AND I AM LOVED!!!!” Wouldn’t it just be easier and more intimate to just call/e-mail/text/wait until you see the person who you are @-ing and share this morsel with them more privately?
5) I know that RT means retweet and I know that I frequently use reblogging as a form of content on my own…blogthing, but when you only have 120 characters or whatever it is, I really don’t understand the necessity of using so many of them to retweet something. Send the person a goddamn e-mail in reference to what they are saying. Do you think that you are clever because you have the ability to spot out someone else’s tweet as being funny or an interesting topic of conversation? You are not.
I would carry on with this, but instead I will close with my take-home points:

I enabled Tumblrrrr for f-book. I’m not entirely positive how I feel about it. Caroline, I will kindly ask that you do the same so you can tell me how I feel about it.
Today, I am going to get JUICE and then I’m going to the LIBRARY for lots of hours of reading rainbow and then I’m going to the MOVIES and then to the HIVE
WHAT AN EXCITING DAY
I’ve been getting really juicy lately. I get a juice everyday because it is 1) healthy and 2) delicious. With all the shit I eat (and I’ve really been eating like total crap lately), I feel my juice negates some of the awful I’ve been putting into my body. I get carrot, orange, apple, ginger, and wheatgrass. It tastes like magic. I feel really sprightly when I walk down the street with my juice, probably also because my wallet is so much lighter, because it is SO EXPENSIVE. It’s about £4.50. This is a lot of money. I do not have that kind of money, but I would also prefer not to die prematurely because of all of the deep fried oil crap that is festering in my body.
Also, at the juice place they make a GOOD FUCKING SANDWICH that makes for really tasty lunch. I mean, goooooooooooooood. With avocado! Where in E-burgh can you get a sandwich with avocado? NOWHERE!! I know! It is also not disgustingly unhealthy, so check-plus for that.
This was utterly pointless. I will now stop stalling and get my juice on. Honestly, I don’t think I’m procrastinating because I don’t want to go to the library, but because I don’t want my juice to be over. When all you have to look forward to is a cup of pulverized fruit and vegetables…that is a sad realization.
