In recognition of the fact that lately I’ve been neglecting my blog in favor of Twitter, I am doing penance with a bit of humor.
You know you spend too much time on Twitter when…
… you start calling your family things like @Dad or @Rachky in conversations.
… you only speak in short bursts of 140 characters and self-edit to use synonyms with fewer letters.
… you make decisions about what you’ll have for lunch based on how interesting it will sound on Twitter.
… you make a new offline friend and announce to all your other friends that you’re just 2 people short of having 200 friends.
… your swear word of choice is “TweetJeebus!”
… your Twitter followers know you are pregnant before your husband does.
… throughout the day you compose tweets in your head about what you’re doing, even if you are nowhere near your computer.
… during a Twitter outage, you compulsively hit “refresh” every three seconds hoping this will be the time it will come back on.
… most of your email is now either direct messages or new follower notifications.
… you don’t feel the need to go to a conference in person anymore because someone else is livetweeting it.
… you get all your news from @BreakingNewsOn.
… you find yourself referring to the telephone’s pound key as a ‘hashtag.’
… you have no idea what’s going on in your friends’ lives unless they are on Twitter.
… you give people your personal website address as a TinyURL.
… you can’t hear what someone says to you and you say, “Could you please retweet that?”
These things, of course, do not apply to me. What would you add?
