Correspondence Hall of Shame, 10/21 / Twitter
Happy Friday! Today’s CHoS is brief, so I thought I’d combine it with some of my observations about Twitter, so far.
i would like to seeyou
i am very healthy not bad looking love oral sex and well off financially
Apparently, he doesn’t love punctuation.
This was from a man wearing a Day-Glo purple wig:
how about foot TICKLING???
or role playing ???
I am nearby in SFV
like translesbians in thigh boots like me ???
Umm… if I liked foot TICKLING, I would have said so in my profile. And really, are the triple question marks necessary???
And this, from a man with a nice close-up shot of his erect member:
surrender your mind and body then fuck luke rabbits. Let’s talk and make it happened.
I don’t know who Luke is, but I don’t want to fuck him or his rabbits.
When I didn’t reply, he wrote to me three more times. Some people really don’t get it.
Some of you saw me ranting on FetLife earlier this week about how I started a new topic in a group and the moderator deleted it. I sent him a message, no hostility, just a simple question, and I quote:
Why was the topic I just posted a few minutes ago removed?
He wrote back, very snarky and combative, saying my topic was redundant (please! Topics are repeated on FL every damn day), and he didn’t appreciate my complaining and questioning him. He ended his missive with this:
Shrugs ..yeah that is right, were all control freaks asshole meanie mods .
No, not all. Just you, stupid.
So I’ve been on Twitter a couple of months now, long enough to notice some generalities.
1. It has its fun moments. I like to see what my friends are up to, and sometimes people post some really funny comments and pictures.
2. The occasional intelligent conversation between several tweeters does pop up on occasion, but is severely limited due to the character limits.
3. About three-quarters of the time, posting on Twitter is the cyber-equivalent of talking to yourself, because you get no response.
4. People tweet about food, a lot.
5. Some people tweet deeply personal and heartbreaking things. I have been known to blog some pretty heavy stuff, but I think one’s personal agony, if it’s going to be made public, deserves more than 140 characters.
6. People tweet WAYYYYYYYYYYYY too damn much information sometimes, and I think they forget they’re talking to thousands of people, not just IMing with their friends. For example, there has been an ongoing conversation since last night about butt plugs. Please, make it stop! I like these people. I just don’t want to read about what’s going up their butts.
7. I have 170 followers at this time. Many are scene people, but then I get the occasional Christian fundamentalist or right-wing conservative. And they’re following me because….?
8. Twitter is a good place to quickly pass on some information to a whole lot of people. It’s also a place where you can waste a great deal of time if you’re not careful.
Guess what got Chrossed today? My off-topic Jerry Lewis post! Now that makes me smile.
Have a great weekend, y’all.
