Now, every one of you has good reason to be critical of me. I want to say to each and one of you simply and directly, I am deeply sorry for the irresponsible and selfish behavior I engaged in. I know people want to find out how I could be so selfish and so foolish. People want to know how I could have done these things to my friends and to my readers. And while I have always tried to be a private person, there are some things I want to say.
I am officially a tweeter.
Or a twat.
Or maybe a twit.
Anyway you spell it, it’s pronounced “hypocrite.”
When I first heard of twitter I swore I would never have one…ever. We were even throwing around the idea of having it for a class so that we could give opinions during lecture to be read later…still against it. And I’m glad they didn’t decide to do it, because I think I would have flat out refused.
But then I got a blog. And when looking at another rss feed type thing, I liked that the author had updates as to the status of any new material…”currently writing” or “no post tonight” etc. So I got a box for my blog. And then I deleted it deciding I hated it. But then I got one again. I liked it for the plain fact that Grammy and Mama wouldn’t think I fell in a ditch in the middle of nowhere because I failed to post one night. (No they don’t really think that, and no I have yet to fall into a ditch in the middle of anywhere)
Then fellow bloggers started having giveaways and you got an entry for following them! Well that sounds like a deal to me! Commence the following of blogs, and possible retweets.
Then I read this entry at my good friend Ali’s blog. And my interest was peaked. And after seeing this amazing comic last firday and discovering I could tweet a congrats to him, my mind was blown. Not only can you basically send personal messages to any celebrity who also owns one (read: EVERY celebrity) but they can reply back?!?! That was it.
And here I am.
Now I’m no Perez Hilton, or Britney just yet. And unlike Miley, I don’t think I’ll be deleting it anytime soon. And I have yet to understand the whole #thing. And texting costs me a lot so there's definitely not going to be a constant stream of updates. But it doesn't matter because I’m now on the search for people I’m a fan of. And I will let them know when I think they’re awesome. And when I have something thought provoking. And maybe…just maybe one day…there will be an @LibbyCox510 waiting for me…preferably from LadyGaga.
P.S. The first part is a direct quote of Tiger Wood’s official press conference. In case y’all were wondering.
Word of the day:
