Day 119 – A Tweet Tart

Art Apple - Day One Hundred Nineteen

Art Apple - Day One Hundred Nineteen

Twitter.

I was terrified of Twitter – seriously frozen with terror. I also thought why the heck would anyone use that? Why would I care about the exact location of my friends unless there is some real need to know. The idea of getting a play by play of a yummy meal is a more appealing concept but I have yet to see a tweet mentioning a tantalizing taste only tantalizing tidbits! Like: “I fell in love, in love with you so suddenly.” (which google tells me are lyrics from the band Hellogoodbye and not something I would ever choose to listen to) or a link to a 60 second stress solution and this evening there was a debate over how long you should keep your “fat” pants. I’d like to know how long to hold on to the skinny pants myself but that’s beside the point.

I got over it and ventured in…  and now I don’t see myself getting tired of it, in fact I really love it. I love the pieces of information, connecting to people who have similar interests and issues, and some of the sheer silliness too! But what I have come to love most is becoming friends with a stranger in 140 characters or less. Who knows what I might tweet next – a tart tweet by a twitter tart 🙂 (really I can’t help myself.)

Until tomorrow.

    Seriously, a tongue-twister with a word that rhymes with, um, art? You’d better hope that I can control myself!

    okay – I’ll try it:
    I don’t tweet, but thought I’d start
    A tart to tweet, who tweets her art
    the art she tweets, it will touch your heart
    and if you really like it, start a shopping cart!
    (okay, that was a shameless plug for her “Shop” tab)

    I too wasn’t so sure about Twitter at first either. I saw how people might be into it, but never thought I would be. Now I love the instant news alerts that keep me in-the-know, especially the ones on health.

    Obviously, there is also the huge, supportive community of those living with chronic illness too, but even if I didn’t have fibromyalgia, I think I’d still use Twitter, now that I truly see its value.

    ooh, having fun now – a limerick!
    There once was a girl who used Twitter
    To tell the world she’s not a quitter
    She fights her disease
    With seemingly ease
    And does it without being bitter
