Twits on Twitter

I am officially beginning to act my age - I hate text speak "CU@4" will get the short repost "not if I see you first!", I have no desire to be on Twitter or even follow anyone on Twitter, the minute insignificant details of my own life bore me let alone reading about others.

I am just about staying on Facebook but this is mainly to keep my grandchildren happy but frankly this may go soon too. No, I am not turning into a Howard Hughes style recluse but I am beginning to think all this information and personal detail sharing is going to backfire.

I like getting hand written letters, cards even - am I alone?

I like actually talking to people on the phone not just leaving a voicemail.

It's raining, I am on antibiotics for a chest infection and coughing for Britain so perhaps the above rant is an extreme reaction or then again maybe not.


  1. I like getting handwritten things too. A few times now, I've gotten such things from other bloggers, and it's really a kick. Of course, I immediately get on the Net to tell them (almost immediately) that the thing they mailed from England ten days ago just arrived. If I had to choose, I would take the Net because I love how quickly things happen there.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  2. I so agree with you about Twitter -- it's for Twits, that's my motto. And I'm on Facebook mainly to keep an eye on my grandsons and my niece and nephew; I don't post that often.
