Twitter has a Bizarre Demographic
When it comes to Twitter, there seems to be only two kinds of people; those who rarely use it, and those who are obsessed with it. My Grandma asked me how to join Twitter once, that was weird…
For this old guy, Twitter is not so easy. This man humorously fails at tweeting and writes about his experience on a political forum:
I had a Twitter account for about three months.
I think I logged onto it maybe six times, and each time it was just what you described. [speaking to fellow old folk]
Jim is eating roast beef!
Terry is taking her daughter to the store!
Bob is wondering if he will ever find a parking space.
Laneshia has a splitting headache.
Jim is feeling really full.
I didn’t want to stick around for the denouement of Jim’s
“really full” condition for fear he’d tweet me from the bathroom.
I didn’t think it would be any trouble deleting my account but when I tried to, Twitter popped up a box that said “Twitter is really stressed at the moment, please try again later!”
Then, I got scared.
Jim’s denouement hung over my head like a large stinky 140 character Sword of Damocles until a week passed and Twitter finally let me relieve myself of the Land of Tweet.
Fortunately news of Jim’s relief never reached me.
As you can see, there are entire discussion groups dedicated to the mysticism of Twitter.
What do you think? Are you as confused as poor Bob here or do you bask in each and every one of those 140 characters? Judging by the IV in my veins pumping constant Twitter action, I’m sure you can see where I stand. 😛
