I decided to join Twitter today. How can you ignore such a large social media agent after Ellen took that famous celebrity selfie at the Oscars?
I think it will be a nice fit for me. Only 140 characters per post. If I want to write longer posts, then I can blog about it. For other things I will also continue to use pinterest, which I’m totally addicted to.
I’ve been bored of Facebook. Same stuff all the time. However, I don’t plan on sharing my twitter with all of my Facebook friends. I find that I feel like I have more in common with those in blog-land whom I’ve never met but who read the same blogs. We obviously share (some) similar interests than old friends from 10+ years ago that I had a class with once.
I use Facebook to catch up with family more than anything. However, I feel like when people post a gazillion pictures from everyone’s vacation and personal events you lose… something. You know when you go over to a friend or family’s house and the two of you would sit there and flip through your wedding/vacation albums together? That doesn’t happen anymore. So, from now on facebook, I will only a few pictures from vacation. If someone wants to see more, they will have to show interest in me and my life to get more… and vice versa.
On Twitter, I won’t be posting pictures of myself. I am a little shy and prefer some anonymity. If I become internet famous, then hey, great, but I would want to be like Daft Punk, Deadmau5, or Kiss (does anyone know what they really look like?). Famous but anonymous.
It will be a new world of hashtags and tweets. I’m ready!
So, follow me on Twitter, below:
