The Strange New World of Twitter

My first two friends I followed on twitter gave my 30 days before I was like “fu*# this sh*+” and moved on with my life.

They may be right because navigating twitter is soooo much. I feel tethered because I don’t want to be hours late seeing something. But I feel out of it cause I have to do so much extra work to figure out what all these damn hashtags mean.

Also, I don’t know how to find anyone. I’m not on Facebook, so I don’t know how to look people up. All my friends have common ass names, so that’s no good.

How do you navigate twitter? And if you’re on twitter, let me know and I’ll follow you! I probably read your blog, so reading your tweets is a no-brainer

    You can look up people with their email address usually, or if they blog as well they usually link up their Twitter account with their blog. Or, probably the best thing is just to ask people what their twitter handle is and do a search. That’s the easiest and usually most efficient way.

    • I never remember to ask. But looking up by e-mail is a fantastic idea, I didn’t even know you could do that!
