so i finally gave in and joined twitter. thus, i naturally feel the need to publicly defend myself.
it’s simple really:
1. i was following a bunch of my friends’ twitter updates on google reader already.
2. my friends are clever and i enjoy reading their clever little insights into their lives.
3. i was updating my facebook status as if it was a twitter account already.
4. if i were to list the top 10 people i love, respect and admire in life, probably 7 of the 10 twitter. actually that’s exactly how many of them do. no, bill cosby did not make the list.
so far here are the ‘cons’ to twittering:
1. having to eat all the critical words i’ve spoken about it in the past.
2. my beautiful best friend has threatened numerous times to break up with me.
but hark! don’t worry guys. i’ve recently learned how to deduce an “empty threat” from a “veiled” or “direct” threat.
direct threat: “i’m going to blow up your house tomorrow morning…”
veiled threat: “you probably shouldn’t sleep-in past 9:30 tomorrow…”
empty threat: “too bad you got twitter. now i have to break up with you.”
see the difference? they’re quite easy to spot.
