In which Twitter cracks me up

People, well people who aren’t on Twitter, ask me all the time “Why are you on Twitter?”  Today, I’m going to give you an answer.

 

Obviously, when you have a blog, Twitter is a big promotional tool; you tweet out your links.  Beyond that, it’s a huge networking tool in that you meet other like-minded people and become friends with them.  Sometimes, you just Retweet each other’s links but I assure you, real friendships can occur.

 

I originally got on Twitter to actually “chat” with some pre-existing friends who were in a Fandom with me.  I still chat with them often and have a list completely devoted to them.   I now spend a fair amount of time however, chatting with my many new friends that I’ve found on Twitter.

 

One of my favorite things about Twitter is how much fun you can have with it.  Here is a prime example.

 

Yesterday, I wrote a post about Ninja Stars based on a conversation that I had with my son Daniel.  While on the way to dinner last night, Daniel and I were discussing Ninja Stars when my daughter Keely interjected.  “Shuriken,” she said.  “What?” both Daniel and I replied.  “They’re called “Shuriken” she informed us.  “They’re not Ninja Stars, they’re Shuriken!” (Don’t even get me started on how she knows this)

I knew at once that I needed to CORRECT my mistake so I Tweeted the following:

Immediately thereafter I received the following response:

Then I replied with this:

 

at which point @RubberChickenMa responded with this:

Yeah, at this point we all cracked up because obviously TWITTER IS THE BOMB!

 

I have had other such fun conversations.  Just today, when chatting with a new follower this took place:

 

He then responded with this:


Obviously the guy passed muster because I have included him under Fooking Funny People on my Twitter list.

 

Another example: A few months ago I had the following exchange with Aaron Douglas, formally of Battlestar Galactica.  He was bitching about the airport and I responded:

 

and then he responded with this:

And last, but certainly not least; last night I got this Tweet from someone I was playing Words with Friends with.  So damn funny!

 

Well, I thought it was funny at least!  So what’s my point? Whether it’s for work or play there are days when Twitter is just damn entertaining.

 

I’m just saying…

    Isn’t it weird how young people live in a completely different culture than we do? And I hate the way they think we are dorks.

    I know what you’re saying. Sometimes my best wine-drinking convos are done on Twitter. Of course, I guess that doesn’t say very much for my real life. But still….
