You spin me right round, baby right round...

Dear Twitter,
You are making my head spin. I consider myself fairly internet saavy. I have a blog, juggle a couple of ning accounts, and update 3 Facebook pages. I know what a meme is. I still have a myspace account out there somewhere. I even know a tiny bit of HTML which is a very big accomplishment for me. But you, Twitter, you've got me beat.

Hoot Suite, Tweet Deck, Twitter Mass... the list goes on and on. And each one does something different? Huh? You seemed so simple, like a Facebook update, but now I'm faced with all these other choices. I feel a little misled.

And am I following or being followed? Being followed is a good thing right? Not like internet stalking? I followed some tips for getting more followers I"m suddenly DM-ing with all these strangers who seem to want to sell me things and I can't find my actual, real friends...

Twitter, I want to make this work, but I think we need to take a step back and figure out what we both really want out of this relationship. I need some cyber space. Maybe we should go back to just being "Facebook friends".


  1. People follow me because I twittered at SXSW Interactive. Now I feel like I need to live up to some weird "interesting" standard now. The pressure is too much!

  2. I feel your pain! It's hard to be interesting and engaging at all times!!!
