Hey, you! Yes, you. Have you read this??? :-) UPDATED!!!

Uhm, yeah. I had to add that smiley.


I am a self-confessed Twitter addict. I love it. If it's a dude, I would marry it. But I know a lot of people find Twitter annoying and I *so* understand why. Hell, I can even list the possible reasons why it is annoying. Because I'm very generous. And understanding too!

So.

1. People Similar To You - Not only is this uninteresting, it can sometimes be, well, offensive-slash-insulting. I know you know how I feel.

2. The Fail Whale - I don't see a lot of it lately but it is annoying. And the innocent whale gets all the blame. It's Twitter's fault! The whale is just a scapegoat. Or a scapewhale. You know. Fail Whale-Scapewhale?

God, I'm so funny.

3. The motherfucking spammers - This is the most irritating, I think. When you tweet something like, "burger" you'll get followed and/or mentioned by a burger site. No. Really. When you tweet "porn", you'll get followed by a porn site. What's even more annoying is that I keep tweeting about Johnny Depp and he hasn't stalked me or even mentioned me. I'm hurt, you know. I. AM. HURT.

Update: An example of my Johnny Depp-related tweet. Very innocent.


4. The #FollowBack hashtag - I see this a lot. Trust me. This doesn't work. I mean, it does, but those who will follow you are RANDOM strangers who don't even care about your tweets. They just want to be followed back (which is the whole purpose of it, I know) because if you don't, they will unfollow the next day. No. Trust me. Try it.

I tweeted those (just for fun, I swear) and I got maybe about 20 new followers! They didn't even read the tweets. Well, they unfollowed the next day so...

5. Some people - Some. Not everyone. And I'm not really gonna say what people should and should not tweet. I'm not like that. SAY WHAT YOU WANT. It's what Twitter is all about. Plus, passive-aggressive tweets are only annoying when you think it's about you. Right? But those people, especially celebrities, who retweet the compliments they get, THAT. That's when I lose it. That's why I stopped following celebrities! The fuck is that for? Not that I'm judg-- well okay. I'm judging. Because you know, when you flood my timeline with retweets like these:

Don't bother finding this Twitter account because this doesn't exist.
People see it like this:

Okay. Maybe it's just me. But still.

I just can't...



I sort of revised this post.

  1. People tell me how awesome I am all the time.* But, I don't go around retweeting it and shit like that. That's just being ostentatious.






    *By "all the time" I mean "never."

  12. you know what?

    I have a lovehate thing for twitter. I hate how much a lot of things about it annoys me but at the same time I'm still having and using my account. I know right?

    recently there's a couple of people on twitter who followed me out of random (no, i don't use #followback) & kept tweeting me, asking me to desperately follow them back! WTHECK?

  13. I started Tweeting but didn't have the stomach for it. Maybe it's a generational thing. But I think it was the fake followers that got to me. And I abhor SPAMMERS!

    Hope you're enjoying your summer.

    You might get a kick out of our new dating videos. On our new VIDEO page. Getting Played part 1 and 2

  14. I agree that's why i left twitter. But sometimes it could be entertaining because of some stupid twitters right? :)

  16. I like me some Twitter too but I have 2 big pet peeves and you mentioned one, which is the retweeter. It's annoying when celebs do it and REALLY annoying when normal freakin' people do it. WE GET IT. You don't come across compliments often, yeesh.

    #2 would be follow Friday. OHMYGOODNESS. There is a person I follow that I can't stop following (politics or something) who @'s EVERYONE SHE KNOWS ON EVERY STINKIN' FRIDAY. Dear sweet Jesus. I get heartburn just thinking about it.

    I found you on Twitter. I follow you now. Hooray totally acceptable Internet stalking!

  17. @erisha - That's what I hate too. People who force others to get a follow back. E-punch?

    @The Guys - But I love Twitter. Some people are just really annoying. (That includes me, of course. Haha.)

    @Mitch - No. It's the stupid users that are annoying. Other than that, it is VERY entertaining. And I thought you never had Twitter?
    Also? You're back!!!

    @Fashioneggplant - Thank you!!!

    @Lor - TOTALLY!!! You said it perfectly! Hahaha!!! Yes, I forgot to mention the #FF's. I hate it when people retweet it when they get recommended. What the fuck?

  18. Hahaha well me having a twitter, it's ancient history. I was there for like a month or two and that was years ago. Yeah, i am back but not totally i think. I just want a blog in handy when i want something in my head be written. And honestly, having a Gossip Girl Seasons 1-4 marathon made me want to have a blog again =)
