10 reasons why I hate Twitter!
10) The name is just stupid? People don't "tweet" nor do birds Speak!
9) Keeping up with it feels like running a marathon ,you keep running but you're not quite there yet!...ever!
8) you can't really talk about it with anyone who is not on it!and the chances you come across a twitterje/yyeh among your friends,family or colleagues in Jordan are similar to the chances I had in Thailand in finding someone who knew "where Jordan is" without a reference to Israel,Dubai,Saudi,or Iraq!
7) I don't understand what's up with the "#" thing ! I just act like I do ! and my ignorance is never my problem!
6) You have so many people following you who never really follow you,you have so many people you follow who you never follow ! Yup,as If your imaginary "friends" on facebook weren't enough!
5) It sounds funny in Arabic : تويـتَر! I can almost hear the Egyptian worker downtown shouting repeatedly to sell his tweets; تِويتَر ضِد الويتَر ! Don't ask me what that means ! I just keep hearing it whenever someone mention توييييتر!ahhhh shut up, voices in my head!!!
4) It is stealing bloggers away !!People are now tweeting what could've been a good blogpost! and if you are a blogger and your 1st reaction to this is "NO NO NO!EH" I'd like you to repeat the following loudly : hello,my name is (your name) and I'm a twittiholic! denial is the hardest to overcome, the rest will be a smooth sailing!get well soon ya'll!
3) I'll only get a handful of comments max on this post! cuz ppl have no idea what the hell I'm talking about :/ (see; The 1st Twittered Lecture @JU)!
2) writing this post was interrupted several times due to twittering that I'm blogging about why I hate twitter!!!!
1) given the previous points, I'm still on Twitter and I love it :/ go figure !
