Aww! Thank you for looking and commenting! allhail

My husband signed me up for Twitter two years ago but I wasn't interested in using it at the time. And for a while now I was asking him about getting me set up with a blog either on here or on my Metaphysical Awakening website. He hasn't had time to set up anything, and for me to figure out how to do it on the website was just too daunting. I've attempted a few times to figure out how to better use the software on there (joomla) but it overwhelms me and I lose my desire.

So then he mentions maybe I should use my Twitter account. I checked it out and it started to dawn on me (so to speak, and sorry for the pun) that it might be just what I needed. And then all the planets aligned for me in my little universe and it just seemed right. At the moment I am loving it, the ability to plunk out whatever is on my mind instantly using my phone (so I don't have to be at the computer), and the need to keep the messages to a certain length (which adds some fun and challenge).

Twitter makes me thinking of the many people using it, all over the world, like points of light, each with their own message, but yet enmass. I think of those points of light shining out and seeming all close together, but as the beam reaches further out into space, the distance between is greater and each beam more individually meaningful.

I also find Twitter a great way to "strip" and just spit it out. Be yourself and share whether many or even anyone is reading. To know that you are exposing yourself to that sun (like in my dream) and being who you authentically are just because you can and because a great little vehicle like Twitter exists to make it easy to do so.

I love how you can turn everything in to a beautiful connective experience. I'll stop by from time to time and read your twitters. I know it'll be fun and interesting and always inspiring.
You are a rare one.
superhappy

I'm really enjoying your twitter page. smile It helps me keep up with the new posts and the posts that has been responded to here. Even with notifications I can't all ways follow whats new or updated.
So thank ya bunches for building your Twitter site! happydance

I can't say the same for mine though. frown I'll keep it so I can surf around in twitter and comment if need be or post a thought ever now and again, my twitter site it too one-sided for me. bored

Thanks for the feedback. flower You are not alone...my Twitter is also very one-sided! Thanks for saying it is useful for keeping up with the latest posts here. veryhappy D set up an auto-tweet thing so that the posts from here go to my twitter without my help. At the moment, I use Twitter primarily for the tweet feeds I get of the latest news in spirit things that interest me (I'm always on the hunt for more, good, unique feeds - which are rare). Other than that, I like to retweet things that really touch me. So basically, I do 3 things: have my forum auto-tweeted, follow others, and retweet others.

I'm learning so much from being involved with Twitter. What I thought it would do for me initially, is not what it is morphing into. As I said, it is more helpful for the following, or for searching current events, than for sharing with others back and forth.

The whole "followers" things has been very eye-opening. I was amazed at first to see that some people who had very little to say had thousands of followers. I was perplexed...scratchhead, but then I saw some tweets that led to a screen in which you could "buy" followers! wtf What is the point of that?! You'd still be tweeting to nobody essentially.

A few time I would feel happy when I'd get a couple of followers thinking...wow, someone likes my posts. Maybe they are into the same things as I am. So I'd go to their profile and see that quite often they were just selling something. I started realizing they follow you in hopes you'll follow them or buy from them. And then sometimes I'd get a follower or two who I could feasibly see having some similar interests, but then they suddenly stop following, leaving me to think they probably were also "fishing" for followers and not interested in my posts at all. pop I really should just stop looking at followers at all! happyeyes

And some people actually follow hundreds or a thousand people! I can't imagine how they sort through all those tweets received (if they even do). I think that the plot of sharing and receiving what one really wants gets lost in the concept of vanity and "look how many friends I have."

Yes, what an interesting twisting path Twitter has been to explore. And yet, it is an amazing way to share and receive news/information instantaneously. I've found the greatest treasures thanks to the tweeters I follow. I wouldn't want to be without it now!

You're welcome. Yep, I can't rightly figure out what the draw of twitter is to a regular person. I've made quite a few tweets, but apparently, no one sees them unless they're a follower and paying attention?
Although, I understand why entertainers, businesses and websites like it for updates.
You're right about folks and followers and followings, it's like a collector that wants as many as they can get. The other 'friendy' communities has many members like that too. For the life of me I can't understand why an average person with no commercial interest would want 100's or 1000's of people on their friends list. I guess it makes them feel better about themselves and not so alone.
shrug
(I like the little shrug gremlin.)

My followers are much like the ones you mention. I figure it's a financial fishing trip for a couple of them and they'll disappear soon. They do come and go quickly....

I haven't heard of buying followers. I agree, you'd still be shouting alone in a crowd.

Twitter has been hiccuping today...
and we're having storms... so life on the net has been less than smooth for me trying to surf with out hassles. no
But I'm hoping I can comment some more before the electric goes off again...
shocking
