Fuyu on TwitterSeptember 21, 2008 at 8:45 pm | Posted in Personal, Site | 11 Comments
So in my eternal quest to make sure I never do anything useful when I’m on my computer, I finally got a Twitter account.
It’ll just stay about stuff I do while I’m at home or have access to a computer. So it’ll often be related to anime, the interweb, some randomness, and often my blog. Thus I feel it’s worth a mention on my blog (and an inclusion in my sidebar).
I was determined not to be pulled into this like I am with so many other things, but it’s just so alluring. It’s a place to just say little blurbs that don’t fit anywhere else. A way to stay up to date without any hassle.
I’ve always preferred forums, and now blogging, to stuff like instant messaging. But alas…these ways of discussing are much slower. Twitter seems to be a nice little compromise between the alternatives and I like it.
Quite frankly, I’m not sure what I’ll post about. So far you can take a look and it’s…nothingness. But hey, I figure my nothingness is as good as anyone else’s nothingness. So I will post it. You can just choose whether or not to read it.
It’s pretty active right now…though I’m sure that will fall a little once it’s not so, “My gosh! New! Exciting! WOW!” to me. You know how it is.
Who knows what I’ll end up posting, but I’m sure a lot of it will be unrelated to anime. A lot of it will just be, “lol, look what I found.” More, “RAWR! WTF!?” that would normally go unseen because I think about it long enough to not post it. And only some of it will be, “Oh news about something.”
I’m sure those of you already using Twitter already know how it goes anyway.
Mine’s just going to be a lot of stuff that I can do or talk about while on the computer. I just got my cell phone recently and we don’t even have text messaging enabled. That’s right. I didn’t get a cell phone until I turned eighteen, and even now I do not text. It’s insane. I’m a traitor to my generation and so on.
I’ll probably update my progress on certain blog posts on Twitter. So if you’re feeling impatient for a specific series’ post you can just follow that and go, “Yes! She’s done with the summary! Won’t be long now!” Because when I’ve been incredibly late it makes me feel bad that my page views suddenly go up because people keep on checking back just in case it’s there.
I think this is especially useful now that I’ve started working on the second “Shugo Chara! Blurbs” post because I started collecting information there to refer to. (You can see it on there now)
But most importantly, Twitter is a way to avoid the “Where has Fuyu been?” posts in the future. My lack of activity recently is what made me decide that it wouldn’t hurt to have a place where I could regularly update and keep in contact with many of my online contacts. If you glance over at my sidebar and see “School sucks. I’m busy.” under twitter, you know why the heck I’m not around.
See? I’m making mine functional amongst all of my, “lol” nothingness.
Now then. Those of you with twitter accounts…gimme. I’m too lazy to find all of you myself. So come to me instead!
The rest of you can just lurk…like a lot of you do now anyway. Or you could get your own accounts. Wouldn’t that be fun?
And yeah, that’s the end of this post. Been a while since I’ve done a self-serving filler post full of…nothing. But I’m in training for Twitter. I feel no need to give apologies.
(Ah and yes. One last thing. It is very pink on my Twitter page. It’s not just you. It’s my temporary setup.)
