I ain't your Twitter Mama

I'm just gonna lay it out there. I am a Twitter Idiot. Seriously. I WANT to be cool. I WANT to understand it. I WANT to play and have cool friends and be so ever in the know... but I don't. I don't understand it, I think I am doing it wrong and that no one loves me. It is seriously hurting my self esteem.

A dear friend told me that this is what all the cool kids were doing so she got me all set up. 'Cause, I swear I would jump off a cliff if all the other kids where doing it,' or at least I pondered that question thoroughly when asked continually throughout my teenage years. So I joined, I set up my little sidebar crap to TWEET you and invite you into my awesome world of Twittering. And you know what... you only hear the birds chirping because I don't get it. I try.. .I do, but what do I write? I try to be all super cool and tweet about what I'm watching... no go. No responses.... Somewhere inside of me I think that everyone else on there is just "direct messaging" each other asking,

"Who invited her to this party?"
"Not me, maybe if we just ignore her, she'll go away."

So for all of you 300 people that are following me... you have choices.

1.Either take the lead and give me some advice on how to be super cool in the Twitter world.

2. Show me some love and start talking to me so I am not the ugly girl in the corner picking my nose.

3. Turn around, because I am not leading very well.

Sincerely,
The Tweetless MamaHere

How come that actually makes me want to follow you on Twitter?

Ok first what are you doing blogging at 5am?!? Second I tried it too and didn't get it either. I would try saying something funny and no response. Plus I was on the verge of a technological breakdown it was too much!

Cheryl said...

I use Twitter and am slightly clueless too. I have no idea what to say most of the time. I feel like an idiot too. :-)

Jean said...

I do feel as if I'm talking to myself most of the time. Yet, I'm still addicted by just being nosy wondering what everyone else is doing.

that's how i felt when i first started blogging...i'm too afraid to do twitter, too, because...

1. i don't do ANYTHING interesting

2. if i tweet about it...can i still blog about it...or is that redundant?

3. i'm already on the computer waaaaaaaay too much with facebook and this...if i twitter, too. jake will divorce me...and i kinda like him! plus, i don't have a job and that would suck...and i don't feel like moving again...we just moved. plus that would throw the kids into the lump of other children with divorced parents who feel cheated and hurt and don't understand...and my kids are hard enough to handle without turmoil...so, i can't imagine what it would be like parenting children who need EXTRA love and attention becauase they are going through a hard time...that would SUCK!!

so, yeah...i'm not gonna twitter!!

Kameron said...

I'm not cool enough for the whole twitter thing and that's ok with me. Besides, if I get one more obsession linked to blogging, my husabnd is goingt o start the divorce proceedings!! Ha! If it makes you feel any better I love reading your posts!!

M said...

I want to Twitter just so I can put the cute bird on my blog...but have no idea and can't help you. I just like the little bird.

Bargain Briana said...

I felt that way at first and sometimes still do! LOL! But just start jumping into convos is the best advice I can give! Help someone else, give them a link when they ask a question! Follow more people.

I've cut myself off from any more online obsessions lol...Facebook and blogging are taking up too much of my time...so unless I kick one of those habits there will be twittering for me!

Lauren said...

I don't even know what twittering is! I have heard about it but no one has really clued me in. So I am with you. I feel like the girl at the party that wasn't really invited!

I don't know anything about this whole twittering thing...it sounds fun, but I think I would be in the same position that you are. I have a hard enough time trying to think of something cleaver to say to update my facebook status.

When you get it figured out let me know because I would totally be one of your twitter followers! You crack me up girl!

heidi said...

I don't twitter. But I laugh when I say twitter. It sounds pornographic.

Ali said...

I tried to twitter too. Didn't work. I need 5 hours to think up clever things to say and with twitter I only have a second to respond with something hilarious, informative, or meaningful. That takes work for me, people!

Heidi @ Tayterjaq's Rebels said...

I know nothing about Twitter and have no immediate plans to learn. I find my life much too boring to think that anyone would really want to know what I am doing throughout the day. It's hard enough to find ideas to keep my blog going.

The Woman said...

I twittered you earlier before I came here. I just joined twitter myself. I'm not sure I entirely get it but its fun I think. lol

obladi oblada said...

LOl...I just joined FACEBOOK yesterday, for pete's sake! Im having trouble with THAT! Ill just stick to my blog, thank you. By the way, your blog is awesome, you dont need twitter!

April said...

Just added you to my twitter - I'll follow you. :)

Mother Goose said...

oh my gosh!!! this had me laughing so hard because I can't tweet either. However, I haven't even tried because I just don't understand it, but when I did I would take an esteem hit too because it would just be me there scratchin' my head saying what the freak??
would you do me a favor and unsubscribe as being a follower and THEN RE SUBSCRIBE AGAIN??? odd request?? WELL, if you RE SUBSCRIBE, then that will put you first on the followers list and VERY easy for me to check on your blog?? pretty please, it makes it easier for me to leave comments.

I know, i'm lazy!

I didn't get it when I first signed up either. Honestly, I still don't completely get it. I say really embarrassing things on there, like how I farted during sex. So I don't know if I'm one to tell you anything.
