Twitter Thing?

Post by UristMcBunny on Mon Sep 29, 2014 7:46 pm

I have bitten the bullet, and am doing the twitter thing.

How does this work? What do I do? Do I just talk at the world? I have followed a bunch of cool people, but that's about it.

I use Twitter as essentially a small-thought dump. Tidbits I might chuckle at, or be reminded of a specific moment, when I scroll back through my timeline. Like a micro-diary, for flippant thoughts which I'm not obligated to (or capable of) elaborating. That's the output; input-wise I read 60% jokes and 40% news/links/commentary. But I think everyone uses it in a slightly different way, so just follow your gut and do whatever brings you any joy in that medium. Wink

You can also start engaging with people you follow by responding occasionally to their comments, and also when you link to stuff you think is cool and @mention the creator, they'll sometimes notice and pop in to see what you're about.

Starting off (I use it very little, so I'm practically still starting off even though I've used it for a year or so), I felt like I was the awkward person intruding into random people's conversations at parties. It wears off a bit, though!

I never really figured it out, so I don't use it. But I think if you guys end up explaining it more, I might check it out.

It's like writing a blog or forum post, except you have to figure out how to say what you want to say with 140 characters or less. Dropping punctuation helps, as does taking shortcuts through colloquialisms, as long as you don't mind possibly putting your foot in your mouth sometimes.

I use it to follow Star Trek actors and squee over what good mates they all still are. And to talk about my snake. That's pretty much it.
