I would much rather see your videos and look at your hair and red lipstick, but I’ll follow you on Twitter anyway.
it really makes me happy that the world is a better place if only for a second– that my generation has given you reason for a little faith. Also I’ve felt like a complete asshole for a while now with regard to my comments in the initial hailstorm of blog hating (I can’t remember what that post was called…but the first really controversial one yours.) I said some unforgivably mean, bitter and unfair things about Rumi. Even while still somewhat disliking her, I was disgusted with myself. and ever since she wrote something pretty sensitive and well thought out about the hateful comments left on her blog….I’ve rescinded all negative feelings.
It was easy to dislike her though because she didn’t really talk about her life very much (until recently what with all the bryanboy stuff) and a beautiful face and a seemingly charmed life are always reason for hate inspired by jealousy.
I think maybe that speaks to making blogs personal. Its hard to hate someone who is trying to genuinely communicate something.
on that note, back to my ridiculous pontificating via undergrad thesis.
We also learned that we two have great taste! 😉
i don’t think it’s necessary to feel guilty for being on facebook or having a twitter account. these new mediums of communication are just part of our evolution.
I’m loling about this post.
I have a twitter account, but I have no idea how to use it, and to be honest, I don’t want to know.
I refuse to use twitter on principle. The root of the word is TWIT. I can’t believe that is not purposefully mocking of users.
Haha! I had at one point created a Twitter account, but really only for a guy I was dating who frequently used it. It was fairly boring aside from the quips I shared with another friend who I know in real life. Eventually, I discovered that he started following a girl on Twitter that I actually know but was a total stranger to him. I then learned that he was communicating privately with her, and inappropriately. She had recently moved to NY, and he was making all sorts of claims about visiting her there. Ugh. After shortly learning of all this, I proceeded to delete him and my account from my life!
Aw, that made me smile. I have met some great people through twitter, but it did take me a while to get into it (in fact, this is my second account because I gave up on it the first time). I have to admit I often tweet about what I am eating, but that is because I am a greedy food obsessed pig.
Oh I love twitter but have refrained from sharing my lunch – although when I go to Penny Dreadful’s tea party on Saturday I might twitpic the cake xx
You are my hero, and I am so following you.
Judgmental! You? Oh no, tell me it ain’t so!
My 12 year old daughter and I just watched this and she said, “I like her. Let’s watch another.”
I had to explain that I wasn’t sure what the word “cunt” was though.
I guess my expectations are low re. Twitter. Heck, my tweets are boring as f*ck with a pithy one every 100 days or so. So, I am pleasantly surprised when friends/people I follow start having interesting discussions or post something funny/relevant/thought-provoking.
Oh good, I’m glad you came back!
My boyfriend recently wrote this on facebook and no one had any idea what he was referencing, “Thing I ate, talk I had, thing I bought, place I went, what I did, with whom, where at, how come, at every moment, all damn day.”
Sums it up.
oh twitter. i have signed up and deleted my account multiple times. most times it seems like twitter is just a forum for a bunch of drivel and/or self-promotion, and that gets old really fast. but every now and again i see a smart, or witty, or important tweet, and then i figure it really isn’t so bad.
p.s. you look awesome with red lipstick.
“don’t look at me while I figure out how to stop this” ahahahahahahahhahaha so funny. good. I like twitter. It’s fun.
I have a twitter account & often feel annoyed by it. I’m tweeting my ass off (sorry for the strong language) & feeling quite invisible. I’m having a bad day, so I’m a bit miffed about all of this business. If I see one more power blogger wearing a giant torn t-shirt with leggings I’m going to have a complete fit. Anyway I do like your hair & I will probably follow your secret tweets.
I love watching my friends have conversations on twitter. I think (like the reason twitter was supposedly created) it helps me get to know them a little bit better when I can be a fly on the wall to their discussions. Sometimes too I can join in and then share that conversation and that kind of thing is not possible via e-mail or text or whatever.
We all know how most of our friends feel about the “big issues”, if we didn’t we could hardly call them friends. It’s the little things twitter unmasks that are so great – like the day I found out at least two of my followers were also unable to ride bikes. I thought I was the only 25 year old on the planet that couldn’t ride a bicycle. So trivial, and never likely to come up in a normal conversation, but thanks to twitter it gave me a laugh and a little warm fuzzy.
It makes me sad when people constantly dismiss daily “drivel” as though it’s somehow unimportant. Nobody is silent until they have an enlightening nugget of wisdom to share with whoever is listening. We all talk all sorts of shit every day thanks to our ever-flowing streams of consciousness, it’s life and it’s real.
it’s not even about having an audience… nobody opens a new twitter account to 150,000 followers. You can even make your twitter stream private if you DON’T want an anonymous audience.
If you’re on twitter trying to find the answer to life you’ve been misinformed to the application’s intent.
Nicole’s boyfriend is right. Twitter IS that thing you ate, that talk you had, the things you bought, the place you went, what you did there, with whom, where at, how come, at every moment, all damn day. And that’s why it’s awesome.
Alicia -Sea of ghosts – I can’t ride a bike either. Shhhhhh!
Luckily most of my friends aren’t on twitter. The ones that are usually send out pretty good tweets, and on top of them I follow people like Grace Dent and Caitlin Moran who are marvelous. Are you following them?
I’m happy to hear you’re happy those girls are nice.
I love you SW – bless your beautiful face and hair xo
I admire that you can admit that you were wrong about people — so few can, especially on the internet. And ah, Russian Red, I should have known! It’s perfect.
unfortunately twitter is modern hence why its cool to have one
i have one honestly cs im addicted to stalking celebs
yeah i admitted it….
Joanne, I hadn’t even noticed this video and your kind mention of me. Not to mention you even pronounced my name correctly (most people say hay-lee). You are lovely, thank you. xo
My god you’re so beautiful. I hope I look as good as you do at that age!
Smile, baby, smile!! for once … and your hair is fine
