...And apparently just as contagious.
I've never tried Twitter and I don't have herpes. But I plan to avoid both forever.
I am growing increasingly annoyed with the twitterers. Mostly because twits (i.e.Type A personalities) think they are super important. If you look "twit" up in the dictionary, it's pretty self explanatory (and kinda ironic):
tr.v. twit·ted, twit·ting, twits
To taunt, ridicule, or tease, especially for embarrassing mistakes or faults. See Synonyms at ridicule.
1. The act or an instance of twitting.
2. A reproach, gibe, or taunt.
3. Slang A foolishly annoying person.
This one is my favorite and, in my opinion, the most accurate:
an insignificant or bothersome person.
Duh. If I want to know what my friends are doing every second, I'll call them. I'll even consider email. I am so over the psychology and egos behind the social networking world. If you're important enough to have a following, I recommend you find a way to make it work for your bank account, not your self esteem. Yay you!
I recently deleted my Facebook account. It's a small step to rid myself of the online epidemic replacing real life. I am confident that the people in my life that I want to stay in touch with will get a hold of me. If someone is getting married, having a baby, breaking up with their boyfriend, or taking a shit... let's assume they'll call me if I rrrreally need to know about it.
I bet Pau Gasol has herpes (and bad breath). And Dwight Howard has the most awesome muscles. Ever. And I put my electric blanket back on my bed because I'm cold. I bought a book today. I'm going to read it right now. I love myself. It's June. I miss somebody. I am hungry. Cameltoes are tough. I think they make tires out of them. Blah blah blah twit twit twat.
