Working it out . . . Twitter Style
My early were passionate. At least that‘s what I thought.
In the early days on Twitter, I made some friends. I was making relationships friends and ending my parental isolation. All was good.
But every now and then, I would get on my soap box. #fuck #ididitalot #enthusiastic
Some days I’m mad at the crazy Real Housewife. (Hey, you fill in the location of your choice – there’s one lunatic on every show. #Kelly #Danielle #NeNe.)
You know Angry Birds? Well, I was the Angry Tweeter.
Do you remember the Super Bowl game when CBS took the Tebow ad, which was a smarmy play against abortion rights?
Well I committed myself to sit at my computer from 8 am to 8 pm. I didn’t own a laptop. That is dedication Man! Crazy and dedicated.
I tweeted all day things like: Fuck CBS, Pro Planned Parenthood, Give to NARAL, Get your laws off my body. (Okay – not literally my body cuz uh, I’m a little older now than I was during my Radical Feminist College Chick days. I’m still Radical. And still a Feminist. But it turns out I am no longer agitating for myself, personally. #menopause.)
It was a long day. (Listening to my husband shout at the game, laugh at the commercials and enjoy loud sounding Ruffles-Like snacks.)
But dammit, I was educating people. In a very hostile manner. All 800 of my followers.
Shortly therafter, 750 followers.
Cuz I was going to change the world, one Bot at a time. (That was before I discovered Twit Cleaner.)
And don’t forget all those followers who were following two people from three years earlier. Yeah, I really changed policy in America that day.
But now? I’ve learned my lesson. I’m here to relate and hopefully entertain.
However, every now and the . . . #birther #FuckDonaldTrump
