tweet! tweet!

I was going to write a post about Twitter, but I forgot what I was going to say.
Hang on just a sec...
aha! found it!

The news talks about Twitter like it's the root of all evil/teenage angst/global warming.
Here's a newsflash, guys:
the only people who use twitter are adults!
How may high schoolers do you know with a Twitter?
I'll wait while you count.
Zero, huh?
No way!
Me too!
What an interesting little kawinky-dink we have here!

Still not convinced?
Let's look at who gets in trouble using Twitter.

- politicians
- celebrities
- bank robbers who tweet about robbing a bank
- jurors with a gag order tweeting about the trial

noticing a theme here?
all seemingly responsible adults.
*shakes head*
I can only hope i'm more sensitive to the fact that ANYONE CAN READ YOUR POSTS ONLINE.
Speaking of which...

hello, random stranger who has stumbled upon my blog!
perhaps you were searching for a) something exciting to read, or you thought b) this was a good source for your 5 page report due Monday, or you're c) just a creeper from my school who is hoping that you can smell me through the monitor.

( if you're c, please, GO AWAY!)
(right now I smell like green tea, for all my creeper friends out there.)
( on second thought, I probably shouldn't be encouraging these disturbing habits. forget I said that.)

don't be a stranger! Leave a comment!

EDIT: and thus, I have been proven wrong. Thanks to Greased Lightnin'.

- no clue. If you know, post!

  1. Actually, I know quite a few people with Twitter accounts.
    Like, 8, and that's only the people I've asked.
    That is part of a character collective cult i'm in.
    It's a roleplay thing.
    But high schoolers do tweet.
    They just prefer to facebook.

    Green tea is gooooooood.
