Twitter Is More My Style

Yesterday, I confessed that I'm Facebook Illiterate and today I'm talking a different social media site...Twitter.

Now Twitter, I get.
Perhaps too well.

Hi, I'm Mel or on Twitter known as @boxofchocolates and I'm a Twitter Addict.

Short blurbs.
140 characters.
Short, sweet.
It's what your thinking.
What you are doing.
It's life happening.

I know some of you question why anybody would want to know what a stranger is doing all the time, heck I'm still puzzled why anybody would want to follow me, but they do. I think my favorite part of Twitter is that people are always there. Being the extrovert that I am, I enjoy twittering with a variety of people on a variety of subjects. Ask a question and it shall be answered.

I actually just celebrated my twitter-versary on Saturday and have enjoyed watching its popularity grow. Twitter is a hot thing right now and it's amazing all the references to it that I have heard lately in the newspaper, on the news, and even talk shows are discussing it. Celebrities are even joining the twitter community.

What about you? Do you Twitter?
If so, what do you like about it? If not, why not?

I am curious about your opinion on the whole follower thing.
  • Do you follow anybody and everybody or are you selective? If you are selective, what makes you follow somebody?
  • Do you ever unfollow somebody? If so, why?

I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Twitter and how it works for you.
Inquiring minds want to know!

  1. Yes! Twitter :)
    I do twitter - what I like the most about it is to just connect and 'somewhat' chat with people. Like you said, there's always someone there, doing the same thing as you - just reading about everybody's day... I don't know - it's fun! :)
    I have a 'protected' account though, so anybody who wants to follow me has to request. That way I get to decline requests from all the spam accounts... I follow all my followers and more... I try to not follow too many people because it gets crowded pretty fast, and then you can't keep up with what everybody is tweeting about.
    I always enjoy reading your updates Mel :)
