With all the hullaballoo of Twitter, that was seriously getting onto my nerves, because I simply could not understand what all the buzz ORR tweets were all about… anddd…after a lot of debate with myself, I decided to join the big big world of Twitter to find out what was soo special…but with a difference….
I chose another name for myself..not a pen name…actually I don’t even know what you call it..maybe the name I would have named myself had I not been named Nasmeera by my parents (also spelled as “Nasmira” by me)
anyhowwww….so how was/is the experience?!?!
What I learnt:
It allows you to stalk people more successfully than Facebook does :P
U even know which celebrity of yours tweeted when ..and if he/she is online when u r…then u can bug them even more by tweeting them!
How’s it different from FB?!?!
Well….in FB… the account could be owned by someone and then u learn its fake (*shakes head in misery*) but in Twitter u already have a blue sign ticked away right next to the person’s name…saying “verified account”..great stuff Twitter folks…(pats twitter bird on its back)
now… how do they verify..I’m not sure but I do remember reading vaguely about how they tried verifying Salman Rushdie’s account and why he seemed angry..or whatever… anywayyy
One fine day…when I become famous and Twitter needs my profile verification.. I shall let u all know.. lol ( just kidding)
So, it all began..and I started “following” others…. people whom I like..
And then interestingly I used to always wonder why people bug celebrities for a “Retweet”..aka RT..
Now this is what I read on one celebrity’s page or timeline or whatever u call it “everyday I wake up to see ___ RT but it never comes..why this kolaveri di” lol….and to think of it..the guy is not even Indian to understand “kolaveri”…OR given his love for India maybe he does know..
So then in my little discoveries I realized that RT from celebrities is a BIG thing!! Like u know…how big it would be if a celebrity “liked” your post or comment on FB or even better shared it on his/her profile (awesome-ness!!)
so well well..I kinda understood that craze
soooo..my mini mini findings about twitter are just beginning to unfold…I for one have to search for “#” on my keyboard..lovely twitter has made a lovely use of that symbol..otherwise mostly used in computer science programming in my school days…
But the downside…whatever the person tweets is on FB and whatever the person posts on FB is on twitter,..making me read the same stuff double double times..so I should either “un-follow” them on twitter or “unlike” them FB to save myself the duplicability.. :( (what to do)..
Interesting twitter world where u know what people are really upto..
The best part…for someone like me who loves writing essays… Twitter has thrown up a challenge “Finish telling everything in 140 characters babe..don’t drag”
So quite a challenge yeah!!
Using a different name makes it even more challenging..coz sometimes I stop to think.. “who’s this” and then remind myself “its me” :D
And for those wondering that I might be fooling people to believe that I’m someone else ..RELAX….the fact that I’m using a different name has already been clearly stated in my bio…
its FUN! and me likes!!
