I know this sounds strange but here's the thing. I never intended on getting a Twitter. I haven't liked a social media site since Myspace was cool. However, I had a friend from another site always saying to me "why don't you get a Twitter?" She left the site and a while after I decided to get one and find her. When I said hi to her, she didn't seem that interested in seeing me. She was just like "oh yeah I remember you" So I made another friend and we chatted late into the night through DM. She even said that it was really nice talking to me when we stopped for the day and it just really seemed like we made a connection. All of a sudden the last things I wrote to her she wasn't replying like she usually did so we stopped talking. Maybe she just didn't like what I said but I got the vibe that it wasn't like it was. Eventually she unfollowed me. I now use my Twitter for reward programs but I feel like I should make a few tweets now and then so it doesn't look too spammy but everytime I talk on it, I feel a bit depressed. Sure once in a while people like what I've said (I've even got retweeted) but I don't really care about that. The fact that I thought I made a connection with someone when I hadn't felt like that in a long time and I was apparently wrong proves I'm not meant for Twitter. I have a few followers but we don't talk to each other. It just seems like a popularity contest and sometimes when someone says something negative to me, it kinda bothers me. Not that I care about what people think but I don't like the idea of being the center of attention so I wonder if my tweet could cause everyone to pay attention. You could say why bother about it? The internet is so big that you can find plenty of places to talk to but that's just it. Sure you have message boards like these here and there but in general, everyone's moved to Twitter and not only that it seems like many sites try to compete with Twitter.
