In which Twitter has lists

So, the other day when I had some extra time and trust me, I always have extra time, I was looking at things on Twitter and I decided to check out Lists.  I personally have very few lists because I’m just a sack so I never get around to them but I discovered that I was on 94 other people’s lists.  Now I know that to some of you, that’s nothing but to me, it was a lot.  I decided to check out what sort of lists I was on and the results were funny.

 

I realized that perhaps I shouldn’t put the actual peoples names down so I’m just going to put down the name of the list and at times, a brief description of the list.

    94?? 94??? I’m only on 6 and one of them is “Craft-challenged mamas”. I also aspire to be on /badassmamas, / writers-who-word-good and er, /peoplewhorock.

    And this? I can discern a few words…

    online bintang tamunya sekali2 pemain operavanjava donk

    bintang = star
    pemain = player

    I’m guessing that means you’re on the right list!

      hahaha…Craft challenged mamas…that’s so damn funny. Some people are on thousands of lists.

    OK, this i have to check out – i made up a few about a week ago on tweetdeck … since i was LOST with the convo’s and my staying power was becoming fast depleted.
    … back … twitter glitters (foreign too) and freakinawesomeppl may be my fav’s … let me look some more.
    (now look what you have started!)

      Twitter glitters…that’s an awesome one. Also, I’ve been dumped from some lists lately. I haven’t been reading or Tweeting as much. That must be why!

    “They may own a worm farm?” I would think that could be merged with “Things that make u go eh.”

    • Lynn
      April 27, 2011

      I know right? But different lists, different people. Now I need to make my list names much more interesting

    I don’t understand lists. I’m probably on the ones like /trainwrecks. I should be on the one that says /better-than-sex
    That would make my whole freaking day.

    • Lynn
      April 27, 2011

      hahaha…that would be an awesome list to be on

    I made a lame list of “moms” but I never use it. I’m thinking about creating a special list just for you. I think from your list I’ll title it “things that make you go eh”

    Essentially I think this means you’ve arrived!….not sure where you’ve arrived, but as someone who isn’t Twitter savvy, I can only assume this means great things! Let’s go with that!…and for only $19.95 I will put you on a list of people who need only one more list to reach 95!

    • Lynn
      April 27, 2011

      ahahahaha…thanks, but actually…i have been crossed off some lists recently and seem to be down to 91 or so. Who knows why?

    This got me thinking. I never use lists and didn’t even know what it was for. I checked and saw that I’m on a grand total of 2 lists. Yep, I’m popular.

    • Lynn
      April 28, 2011

      I have a few lists, including a few locked ones…but i’m not great about it

    I just typed in “mothering” on Twitter and I got Lady Gaga.

    So I decided that learning about parenthood from Lady Gaga must be a good idea, otherwise Twitter would not have led me to her.

    Synchronicity. Damn. Too early in the day to start drinking.

    • Lynn
      April 28, 2011

      Twitter knows all…i can’t imagine that Lady Gaga is not an authority on parenting. She’s certainly my style muse.

    You are already including in a couple of my twitter lists :) I like using lists to filter out the stuff I don’t care as much about or to find out what’s happening in the world of topics or themes. I can confirm that the lists you are on are ones I look up regularly. What I find weird about my lists is that they have followers!
