I appreciate all the people I follow. I follow so many different types. I follow women, men. Intellectuals, dumbasses. Older and wise, Young and dumb. Old and dumb and Young and wise. I follow career folk and people who are just getting by. I follow parents and non parents. Married and single. All different types. I follow them all for a reason.
My day wouldn't be complete if I couldn't log onto twitter to vent. It would be almost impossible to not log onto twitter and be nosey about who said what, what topics people are discussing and who is flirting with who.
Of course I have a few favorite tweeters. These people keep me sane, keep me laughing. Another may *ahem* excite me.
Either way. I like them all. And I look foward to reading their tweets daily.
I understand twitter ain't for everybody. I also understand that some people are just too busy to be all up on twitter. And for others, twitter ain't as fun so they fall back dramatically. They just kinda disappear from twitter. Then you have tweeps who just happen to have real life shit going on and can't tweet right now.
What I don't understand are people who tweet like shit one day, then disappear for weeks. But before leaving announce they are "Taking a break from twitter"
I have said that myself, usually in jest or when I'm in a funky mood. I never mean it tho. Some people mean it.
I don't really understand the reasoning behind leaving twitter for a while for no real reason. Of course, when my favorite followers do this, I get perturbed and try to figure out what's going on.
1. They need a twitter break because other people's lives make them feel like shit - There is no doubt that people use twitter to brag about their life. They use twitter to get attention.. This can make the average broke person like myself feel like shit if you don't know the real shit about life and you don't know that people are assholes who lie or exaggerate cause they themselves have low self esteem. If you left twitter because you feel like your life is some shit, man up. Don't believe everything you read on twitter and don't think you aint shit cause someone appears to have it going on.
2. They smashed one of their followers and are embarrassed because that follower is hardly tweeting them any attention - smashing someone you follow isn't for the faint of heart. If you are super soft or think everyone you give the goods to should like you and want to be with you, you are sadly mistaken and are completely doomed. So you thought you could handle that person you smashed tweet's. You thought that the flirting with their other followers wouldn't bother you. You were wrong. Now you have to take some time off twitter cause your heart is broke and you feel like an asshole.
3. You are so thirsty for attention you want people to miss you - I miss my followers that go on these stupid, wimpy hiatuses. But most don't. Most won't miss you. Just stay your ass on twitter and stop being an attention whore..I mean....you know what I mean (since technically being on twitter makes you an attention whore). These are the tweeps that normally announce they are leaving twitter for a while. BOO FUCKING HOO
4. You only tweeted at work any way - I hate you tweeters. Fake ass tweeters. Nah for real. Some people mostly tweeted to kill time at work. And that's cool. I understand you don't really have any work at your govt job so you can do that. Of course, your job decides to either get on you about your tweeting or they have blocked twitter. Your tweet counts and appearances go down DRAMATICALLY and you appear to be on hiatus. They usually don't announce they are leaving twitter, I brought them up because they are fake tweeters anyway lol. Not really into twitter.
Those are just a few reasons I think lames purposely take twitter breaks. I'm trying to figure out if you think twitter will suffer without your tweets. I'm trying to further figure out why you are letting a bunch of nobodies dictate how you feel about yourself or when you tweet.
Why you even taking a hiatus from twitter? What's the real fucking reason? Cause "I need a break" means some shit has happened and your self esteem won't let you tweet right now cause twitter lies and falsehoods makes you feel worse about yourself.
Whatever....grow some balls. I sell some on Etsy for 9.99....that's for that low low. Homemade balls
