Twitter ~ a state of tremulous excitement
to talk lightly and rapidly, esp. of trivial matters; chatter.

Tweet ~ to make a sound
a weak chirping sound, as of a young small bird.

A year and a half ago I had never heard of microblogging and when I did hear about it I did not want to participate in any form of it, period. I thought it was rediculous, a waste of time and I especially found it stupid. I thought updating my Facebook, Myspace and Hyves was enough of sharing as it was and when I heard about this website called Twitter I swore I would never ever create an account on that website.

Then Twitter started to get more and more popular, Twitters´ growth became newsworthy and was generating press interest, and honestly; my interest grew along with all it's media attention. At that point there was only one person I knew that "tweeted", and when I asked him about it my prejudice appeared to be nonsense and I decided to give it a go. I registered on Twitter on April Fools' last year, and soon I found a few interesting people to "follow" on there. Before I knew it I had gotten to know some great people on there and I am actually still in contact with those I love.

For some reason I found the hundredandforty characters limit to be somewhat interesting. After I had been tweeting for a while I caught myself on even sort of thinking in hundredandforty characters. At first I thought it was a signal for me to get taken into Twehab, but apparently a lot of my friends started suffering from the same symptoms.

Randomly I posted what I wass thinking about, or what I was doing at that moment. For some reason people seemed to find my tweets interesting and meanwhile I must have spoken to hundreds of people on there. Do not ask me why, but at this very moment there are over eighthundredandfifty people finding my tweets worthy of showing up in their timelines, and most importantly I have really made some true friends. I just want to give those that I have met on there a big shoutout, as they truly enrich my daily life, and have become the people that have gotten to know me much better than a lot of so called friends in real life.

I love that you are all wonderful, intelligent, funny and brighten up any sad moment I choose share. A lot of people will probably not understand why we would contact people that we have never really met or seen, but as long as we know we can count on eachother. Cheers to all of you, I love you, and see you out on Twitter!


PS: I do realize this blog is a very badly written one, I've still got a fever and haven't really looked it over. Promise to write a better one next time!

Yes I so Agree, Twitter is a daily habit for me now. The only regret is that I don't have the means to tweet everywhere ( yet ) that bugs me a bit. But yes ! Twitter is amazing, you get to see the world a little closer, little more interaction.

Great blog ! And the site has gone in my bookmarks as well !

You described Twitter perfectly. I wasn't ever going to twitter either but one day a friend shoved me hard. I haven't looked back since. I have met wonderful people like you on twitter and that has made it worth it all.

I have to say that tweeter is the first form of blogging that I have participated on, I didn’t think I would last long on it just because I’m a shy person and I didn’t think I would be able to communicate with strangers. To my surprise it actually helped me a lot. I’m happy to say that today is my first anniversary on Tweeter. In the year I have been tweeting I have met a lot of interesting tweeps and I hope that someday I will be able to meet some personally .

When I first heard about twitter I joined out of curiousity. I never imagined how many twitter friends I would meet, how we care about each other and send little tweets to brighten each others day.

I am very happy to call you one of my twitter friends. You are intelligent,funny,caring and one heck of a tweeter :)
