Small Town Tweeting

images-4Twitter has finally made it to Hooterville
and the content is scintillating!   Just listen!
…I really wish I hated Rod Stewart more.

…man, I just got a huge craving for Chicken McNuggets…where’d that come from?

….Why hello there weekend…we meet again…and I see you are wearing your stretchy pants…well played.

…me thinks its sleepy time.

…can’t tell if my dog just farted or burped…we’ll all know in moments.

…Yard is mowed and I’m ready to chill.

….Dude! Your grilling is the shit.

Even our noon Rotary is all Twittery about Twitter.  Hey, it’s a new toy to play with when you likely should be WORKING!   I’ll play along, when I can tear myself away from PAYING WORK, because I want to understand it.  Josh Klein had some interesting thoughts on Twitter  and I was flattered that The Ad Contrarian would not only follow my Tweets, but send me an email to thank me for following him.  Hell, I’d pick up his dry cleaning.

But so far, Tweeting here in Tiny Town is mostly  used for bullshit, as you can see. It’s hard to see a bigger picture when a keyboard gives you the power to be a legend in your own mind.  Using it as email is incredibly stupid, as no one CARES if your dog farted or you hate Rod Stewart.  These people must be lonely.  There have been some worthy tweets that took me to an interesting article or video. Maybe if users were offering more viable and noteworthy information, I could find some redeeming value in it all.  I believe Adscam feels the same way…not to mention there is no way (yet) it’s gonna make any money.  Jane Sample has found a way for advertisers to use it….hmmm.  But I agree…this could fast turn into spam/telemarketing.

Follow me at adchick22 and I’ll try to be worthy of your attention. (someone else took adchick…squatter)

    I can’t get on the twitter bandwagon. Yes I have an account. I wanted to at least see what it was and try to understand it and how it could be used.

    I have two friends who love it. And when I try to get them to explain to me what they like about it, they blabber on about following shaq or lance armstrong.

    I guess there is not a person or thing that I care to get updates on things about or from. Maybe if I didn’t blog everyday and have facebook, I might have some interest in it, but I feel if people want to know what I’m doing they can go to my blog, email, call me or swing by the house.

    Thank you for the link to the Josh Klein article…interesting. Man, I won’t be taking any Twittering to any small town near me, that’s for sure. 😉 Thanks for the insights.

    Thanks. Can you also grab a quart of milk while you’re out?
