I'm officially on Twitter!

Try and guess my username. I'll give you a hint: it's not pristinefootwear.

My Twitter would be rather boring. I'm literally one step away from becoming the person who is afraid to leave her apartment, so my Twitter would be chalk full of:

wolf: watching Murder, She Wrote
Tuesday, March 24th 2009 05:00pm
wolf: going to the bathroom
Tuesday, March 24th 2009 04:00pm

If you guys want to know what shows I watch, what video games I play and how often I go to the bathroom and for how long then I'll make a Twitter for you.

Microblogging is played out. Anybody who's anybody has moved onto nanoblogging.
That's where you post a single one or zero on the internet every once in a while.

Hah. Mine would be almost equally as boring.

8am - Telling a child to stop calling people gay.
8:04am - Telling a child to stop calling people stupid.
8:05am - Asking, for the love of all things holy, why won't you just be civil to eachother?
8:06am - Lecturing on civility and respect.

Repeat every hour, until I get home, and then I would just be twittering about the internets and tv.
If we weren't such good friends, I'd wish you were dead.

I for one would be all over twitter, rubbing soap in its sexy buttocks and caressing its long silky blue hair if only it weren't such a slut and sleeping with every celebrity and noncelebrity I've ever heard of or imagined.

The only reason I'm not on twitter is because it's in the seconds stage that social networking sites go through of which there are three.

1. Is set up. Gets to low-level popularity. It's pretty cool. Not a lot of people are on it, its cool. The people who join at this stage should enjoy it while it lasts, it will only get worse for them.

2. Explosion in popularity. Suddenly, it seems everyone is talking about the site. People are joining all the time, it is reported about as one of the "fastest growing" whatevers on the internet. No longer cool. People who join at this stage are looking to see what the fuss is all about.

3. Internet Institution. Accepted as a part of the internet. No longer remarkable to anyone, but used regularly as a useful tool.

YouTube went through this and I got to be there from stage 1. Similarly with Facebook, my friend was one of the first people to sign up and he said that it's gone so far downhill since then.

Pray that SMBC forever stays in stage 1 (I know it isn't a social networking site, but halfway through writing this, I noticed that it could apply to any craze.)

I'm pretty proud that I never had a myspace account. Twitter, also no. Facebook, yes. My facebook profile picture was Oldrac's av for like six minutes. I think he was just trying to freak me out.

That's about the shape of it. No, I don't know why I thought it was a good idea.

My friends forced me to make a myspace, but I rarely visit it.

That's exactly why I'm on Myspace, Twitter, and Facebook. Damn you, Danish friends, and your adoption of various internet phenomena!

MySpace ist nicht so gross in Canadia. But tons of people have facebook so it's easy to find everyone, plus it gives me a place to post my bizarre philosophical ramblings and have them ignored.

We don't use twitter, though. Not cool.
