Twatter


Ever sent a text to a mate and thought to yourself:
'Man, I wish I had sent that to everyone so they could laugh at how fucking funny I am'?
Well, that's what Twitter has the potential to be. Whether it fulfils that potential or not is another issue altogther.
Follow me, my children.

yeah but that sword cuts both ways. Imagine the embarrassment of drunk twittering and writing something ultra-twattish at 4am?

Adam said...

I look forward to it. Then I shall regret it.

I'm still not 100% about using Twitter. I feel like I'm supposed to update it constantly and I don't like that pressure. I type a load of shite in one go and then leave it for a few days.

Adam said...

Yeah, I can't get my phone to send updates for the last week or so. It woked before that. I enjoyed that alot coz I could just be sitting on the bus twattering away about stuff. Any ideas how I might get it working again?

Why am I the only one who thinks Twitter is a load of gick? I just dont get it. We have blogs, MySpace, everything else telling the world how clever we are. Soemtimes we even meet the world in person.

There's this fucking crazy feeling that we're supposed to be streaming 24/7 LIFE. Isn't that sort of egotistical? Man, even on my secret blog I feel like a wanker just by admitting I had a shit day. This whole Twitter thing is just like even more pressure for people to prove themselves in text. Totally unnecessary. Wotevs.

Ah Nay, tis not like you to be angry ;)
and you're defo not the only one who HATES twitter.
I still get crap of mates for having a blog!I actually remember getting shit off the same mates for having a mobile phone years ago..why am i still mates with these people?..
I suppose when we all have myspace,facebook,blogs and the like, twitter is just another thing to distract me from the daily grind y'know?
I think there's an element of ego to all the things you mentioned so I don't see Twitter as being much different really but I get why everyone thinks it's a waste of time/energy/sanity.
Fuck it, to quote Brendan Grace in Father bleedin Ted: I've had my fun and that's all that counts.
i look forward to following you on Twitter arf arf

Angry?! wtf are you on about?! :p

Give your mates schtick for joining a gym or having an extravision account then :p

No I see Twitter as the equivalent of contrived cosmetology. MySpace/blogs (bikini line/moustache wax) are fine but you dont have to shave in a heart, dye it pink and show fucking everyone do ya!?

BRENDAN GRACE LIFE CAUSES TROUBLE! BAAAD TROUBLE. It's okay for poxy alcoholics who can't remember any of it :p

Nay - haha, i don't need anyone to tell me I'm narcissistic and insecure at the same time. Long live Twitter! Validate me!Validate me NOW!

Nay said...

They thought the sound of the future was a barcode scanning the napes of our necks...the truth is, it's the bleep of a validation-text-tweet-twat.

I wanna say that out loud.
