Twitter grew up when I wasn’t looking

      1. “Awesome” is so 2000 here…only old people trying to be cool say it! “Cool” seems to be back here…but you now how fast things go out of style – will let you know…we have to keep up ( giggles)

      2. “Cool” is so ingrained, it’s what comes naturally. Other than that, I just try to go with what my son and grandkids say (not trying to be cool, just trying not to be totally uncool).

  1. Yep…that be the case. Works well for prose..but not that much for poet stuff. But I mostly tweet politics at the 140. I use twitter as a news feed. And it’s a living breathing joke machine.

    1. I don’t use it at all, other than to have WordPress automatically feed my posts to it. I figure that might be a convenience to some readers. I’m assuming it destroys all the line breaks in your poems?

      1. Yes, breaks ’em big time. I think you’d find twitter really interesting. It’s all about who you pick to follow and the use of Hashtags. I follow reporters and pundits, papers and left leaning types. An it’s an asymmetric follow. And if you watch Sunday Q and A it can all fly.

      2. I followed some people when I first set up the account. But I usually don’t think to look at it on the computer and rarely even look at my cell phone. I did try looking for hashtags to see comments on the soccer game Friday night and never even saw the one that was trending big time that night. That’s about it. I prefer to get my news elsewhere.

  2. I just haven’t got into Twitter that much. I check it from time to time, but I enjoy Facebook. I barely have enough time for that and my blog, so just cannot pick up another social media now.

... and that's my two cents
