I love Twitter. (What’s that? YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TWITTER IS?? Get out from under that rock and read this.) I love the succinctness (um, yeah. is that a word? Google says yes but man does that look weird.) of 140 characters. I love that I can follow my favorite people- those I know in real life, my bloggie friends, even some moderately famous people if I want. And obviously- because there’s a little narcissism in all of us, especially on the Internet- I love that I can share tidbits of my life with everyone else. Because I KNOW you care what I’m doing every hour of the day. Really. I know.
But one of my favorite things about Twitter? The way you all make me LAUGH, OMG. I have found myself cracking up over Tweets or nodding my head in agreement and chuckling more times than I can count. It’s just such a nice feeling to know that we’re all in this Life Thing together, and that we can share the ridiculous moments of our days with each other.
Because of this, I use the ‘Favorite’ feature a lot. That way I can mark Tweets that I found interesting or SO TRUE or just insanely hilarious and go back and read them later. If I’m having a bad day, you can bet that there is someone on Twitter who can make me laugh, or at least make me feel better because their day is actually WORSE than mine. heh.
So I’ve decided to start a new feature here on my blog. Partly because I’m a giver (ha) and want to share the love of the Tweeps (okay so now I’m starting to ANNOY MYSELF with these terms…) on my list, and partly because I’ve been sorely lacking in motivation to post on this here blog lately, so I’m hoping this will get me moving. So really, a Win-Win! Each week, I plan to post my favorite Tweets from the past few days. There might only be 1, or there might be 10. I guess it all depends on all you lovelies on my ‘follow’ list. (No pressure!)
It’s not really a contest and there are no winners or anything. But I will be posting links to the Twitter profiles of those I’ve favorited (wow, now it’s a verb! I love the Internet and how it makes us invent new words!) so you can feel free to follow them and bask in the glory of their genius and wit. (oh, and don’t forget to follow me too!)
Okay! So the list! Normally it will just be a week’s worth, but since this is my first time doing this and I make the rules (POWER TRIP!) I’m going to go back a few months because LORDY, there are some gems out there.
Torrie: Crying because of scraped knee- 1 minute. Crying because she doesn’t like the band aid we put on her knee- 20 minutes. posted 10:03 AM Jul 10th (That made my jaw drop with its absolute PERFECTION at summing up Age Two. Seriously.)
Okay so these next few… there was a Twitter thing going on this week where people were posting first draft movie lines. Famous or memorable quotes from movies, written in a different way that just made me CRACK UP, some of them were just hilarious and so creative. You all are awesome.
