Why I Joined Twitter...

I was reading a E. Payne's blog about Twittering. I have been going back and forth about weather or not I should indeed be "tweeting". I never realized how many people are actually talking about this thing. About a week or so ago I wrote about blog about my need to get more readership. In the end, I mentioned Twitter. Then I saw this, which was on E's Blog:

"Twouble with Twitter" sous-titré

After seeing this, I thought to myself. There is no way I am going to tweet. I am not a loser or anything like that. Then I realized that E is on Twitter and he is not a loser. So may be there is something to to this. I had to think about this further. What seemed to be the very next day after I saw this, I was watching the Today Show... needless to say I became very interested and saw the rest of the segment...

After watching this, I was still not entirely convinced. I am really not trying to follow any celebrities because, quite frankly, I don't give a shit about them. I just want to do me. Sure, I guess I can see which of my friends are on there but that is what I have Facebook for. Really, why would I want to use Twitter just to put up a status message?

That is when a Yahoo! buddy of mine, who also has a blog, told me that she promotes her blog through Twitter. She was able to explain to me how she networks her blog through Twitter, with updates and conversations that she has had with her followers.

Readership! That was my thought. So I jumped on it. If I can use this to my out then so be it! Come check me out:

So, yes, I have "twatted..."

I signed up for Twitter before Xmas and haven't been back on it. I was inundated with "followers" and was just too much. I had yet to figure out what all the hoopla was about for Facebook, let alone Twitter. But then I was off for 2 weeks for Xmas and became addicted to FB. My FB addiction is subsiding, so I don't want to become addicted to anything else...but I'll eventually have to jump on the Twitter bandwagon. They asked me to do Twitter for Honey, so I may have to give in. I barely have time for anything else, so "tweeting" is not appealing to me at the moment. But I guess if I want to grow my readership, Twitter is just another way to do that. I'll think about it...I need to wrap my head around it more first. I don't know how you have a job and "tweet" at the same time :)

LN- I'm on twitter, but I don't get all the fuss. One of my friends constantly puts up her EVERY SINGLE THOUGHT even when she's out partying and my thing is if you're so busy partying, when do you have time to tweet. It is a sickness.

I will follow you though I am on twitter too.

PS... I agree with you Brooke it's just way too much to keep up with although I'll sign in to tweet ever so often. I update my status there probably about once every 12 hours. LOL
