Twitter is Not for Twits!
My mother, God rest her soul, is now just a memory. But an amusing one.
Occasionally, like for example when the meatloaf burned or the dog had an accident on the rug, she would launch into a raving fit — screaming and thrashing her arms in the air — and then when she realized how pointless her tirade was she would stop and apologize. She called it a “having a twit”.
It was silly and dumb.
John Mayer, the prominent singer and moron, once told E-Online that Twitter is “inherently silly and it’s inherently dumb.” At the One Splendid Evening benefit for the VH1 Save the Music Foundation he continued, “If you really think that Twitter is the pathway to spiritual enlightenment, well…It’s one step away from sending pictures of your poop.”
Now, to continue in the tradition of using Twitter as a meaningless waste of time and trouble, Congressman Anthony Weiner has distributed pathetic pictures of himself and destroyed a promising political career. He then apologized as well. I suppose we should be grateful that he didn’t tweet pictures of his poop.
Well, enough already! Twitter is not for twits!
I have spent more than a year building a highly engaged Twitter following of more than 43,000 followers. I respect them. I have never thought it a waste of time or trouble. And I have sent over 12,000 tweets, hopefully of an uplifting and useful business nature — and as I recall, none of them have been pathetic or lurid.
It’s bad enough that we must periodically defend Twitter as being much more than monkey business. None of us that take Twitter seriously need prominent celebrities and politicians making us look like chimpanzees.
So much for my twit. But I’m entitled, don’t you think?
