I Don’t Understand Twitter, but My Manhood Has Been Questioned.

Tags: , ,

When You Question the Manhood... You've Crossed the Line.My wife wants me to stop giving her a hard time about Twittering. She insists it is very useful in her ongoing search for more technology knowledge.

How much more computer information can she shove into that brain of hers? Sure I know the average head weighs about 10 pounds (man, that was back when Tom Cruise was still cool), but even so… how much stuff can she put into her head before it explodes?

I just know it is going to happen sooner or later and when it does, I can only hope she isn’t using my pillow.

As we were discussing Twitter, she said that people follow each other because they have the same interests, want to share ideas, or are looking for guidance on an education related project… or something like that… I think I zoned out at some point during the discussion.

I still don’t get this whole Twitter thing.

What I do understand is that she doesn’t think 500 of these Twittering types will follow my blithering, incoherent, slightly angry, mostly confusing, sometimes disturbing thoughts on a daily basis.

She mentioned something about too much of a bad thing…Twitter is a Riddle... and Yet, So Addicting.

With that thought, she has thrown down the gauntlet. It is on.

My manhood has officially been questioned (again… one of these days she is going to make me mad enough I will learn to cook for myself).

I am looking for 500 people to follow principalspage on Twitter.

Not really looking so much as begging (as I have mentioned in the past pride is not really a factor).

She will rue the day she crossed me. Or more likely the day she married me.

It is a tough call to guess which will happen first.

    Ok, you do not need to understand Twitter, you just need to jump in with both feet and you’ll get it. Plus…it is only 140 characters per tweet which makes for short, sweet, and “zone” free conversations. Have fun!

    Ok… I’ll accept the challenge and follow you. But to reap the most benefits from using Twitter, you’ll need to follow all those who follow you!!
