Barack Obama and Shaquille O’Neal Are My Twitter FollowersCategory: Computers
I have registered on twitter last August 20, 2008 out of curiosity. I have read that it’s one of the fastest growing social networking sites in the world so I registered. But unlike its counterparts like facebok where I can create my profile by writing my favorites or where I studied or even upload my pictures, twitter is so much different.
At my twitter home page, I’m being asked “What are you doing?” What the heck, does it really matter to you if I’m picking my nose right now? Hehehe… And I must write in 140 characters or less. Huh? I don’t understand how telling nobody that you are watching Twilight works. I just went with the flow and posted random comments and links to my blog posts. But I STILL don’t understand how it works as no one seems to really care. No one replies to my tweets.
Then I discovered twitterfeed. By giving my RSS feed URL to it, it automatically creates a tweet of my posts everytime I make a new one. But still, NO ONE replies to me and I STILL don’t understand all this micro-blogging thing.
Now, almost 7 months later; I’m following 789 twitterers and 505 follow me. In the Philippines, I ranked 32nd in the number of followers according to twitterholic.
Out of those 505 followers, the most famous of them are US President Barack Obama, Shaquille O’Neal and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Wow, those three are actually interested with me and reading my tweets! Harharhar, who am I kidding?! Well, at least even if just in the “virtual world”, I can lay claim that Obama, Shaq and Governator are my buddies.
P.S. I think I should rename this post, “I Don’t Understand Twitter!”
