Sorry to interrupt my regularly scheduled blog post but, I have another random thought. Question, actually.
It has to do with Twitter. I know, enough with Twitter already. And stop with the eye-rolling. That’s MY job.
Do you. Yes you. Ever wonder. When you are talking to someone. And it’s a mutual follow between two consenting Twits…
And this Twit that you are directing your comment to either is a: ignoring you. Or b: ignoring you. Or c: covering their eyes and singing in their Pee Wee Herman voice, “Connect the Dots.”
Yet you consistently answer their Tweets because you think this particular…or THESE particular…Twits…are a: interesting. Or b: funny. Or c: whatever…you just felt like it.
Do you EVER get the feeling…
That those/that particular Twit is avoiding you like the Swine Flu…or whatever the newfangled little word for it is…
Because these/this Twit thinks you’re a: annoying. or b: a psycho twit stalker or c: could care less about what you have to say regarding their Tweet? or d: a psycho crazed twit stalker.
Or is it just me?
Carry on then.
I wonder this all the time. Like they are thinking “Who the hell is this crazy chick and why is she tweeting me?”. Yup. I never get a response from some people. Other people respond right away. And then of course, there are the people I actually do stalk – like Dave Matthews. He will probably NEVER EVER answer a tweet from me. Ever.
I’ve been on Twitter since it had like 100’s of users. It was sort of necessary. And it’s sort of evolved.
And yes, there are ppl I’m sure will ignore you. And there are ppl who follow so many ppl that you just get lost in their stream. (Ahem, I used to get lost in a certain person’s stream all the time. Then make fun of his popularity just to make him feel guilty for ignoring his um, well me. Whatever it was I was to him when he would end conversations with I love you.)
I’ve learned to not take it terribly personal. (I’m known to notice replies days after the fact. I’m a dork like that. )
Or take my other approach- screw ’em
I happen to like you BECAUSE you are a little crazy. But that might just be me.

That’s one reason I keep my follow list short. I would take the rejection badly and become a for real stalker. Just playing….
… or maybe they are like me and they don’t always see the response right away. It gets lost in the crowded twitter-traffic. So, you think that someone has not responded and then — to your horror — you realize they have and you’ve kept them hanging for a while. That is the other side of the coin.

Twitter and me have a love hate relationship.. as you an tell I come and go from it..some days I love it..other days..blah.. but I can’t stand the ignores sometimes..but I don’t let it bother me anymore.. I used too..but then I stopped..haha
Definitely not just you.
I could never ignore you my farting queen. 😉
um, but yeah, there are a certain few that I never get a response from…Damn Diddy.
Or maybe we just aren’t “high” enough on the “food chain” to even twit these special twitters?!
If you ignore me I might cry. Or commit twitter suicide. LOL

lol, yes I have felt this way on a couple occasions. And darn it I thought my replies were really funny too, lol.
Midwest Mommy says
I just saw you are going to BlogHer, me too! I will add you to my blogher blogroll 🙂
I think everyone thinks that at some points, and if they don’t, good for them. Also, I want to know how they do it.
I’m still trying to figure out why half the twits follow me in the first place, or why I follow people who never twit me back.
But personally, I love your twits cause you and Tara_R always make me laugh till I tinkle, LOL!
I’m sorry…..was the twit directed towards this twit?! You see all the fat asses sitting on me prevented me from seeing your tweet! You know…the spam tweeters
But hey…we can be a)psycho twits together b) annoying twits c) bitch twits (thats my personal fave!) or d) care less what all the other twits have to say.
