Name Your Twitter Addiction…

Twitter Addiction Definition Chart


a free social networking service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets.


1.) being abnormally tolerant to and dependent on something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming

2.) an abnormally strong craving

Twitter Addiction:

1.) the irresistible urge to check and update Twitter repeatedly throughout the day

2.) the sudden onset of writing tweets in one’s head while running errands, sometimes accompanied by a new habit of adding hashtags to other conversations and social media outlets.

Social Tweeters:

Those who only tweet socially. They can quit anytime.

Chain Tweeters:

Moving from one tweet to the next, with hardly a keystroke in between.

Serious Tweeters:

Tweeting on twitter even before breakfast.

Happy Hour Tweeters:

Mainly only tweeting for the few hours after they get off work. (“It’s ok, they have it under control.”)

Hard Core Tweeters:

Tweeting morning, noon, night, in the car, in the kitchen, in the bedroom. Will sneak tweets in through texts and fancy apps when no one is looking. They may have multiple twitter ids hidden around their computer. Those around them may not be aware of how often they are really tweeting, the Hard Core Tweeter is extremely adept at hiding it.

*Disclaimer – Twitter may be habit forming. If you are using other methods of social media, you may need to talk to your social marketing expert before adding Twitter to your daily regimen. Twitter is safe for daily use, but may cause side effects such as Migraines, Insomnia, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and callouses on your fingertips. Other symptoms include burned bridges due to TMI. If you experience these or other symptoms you are probably using Twitter too much. Just sayin. Of course I’m not affiliated with Twitter in any way and this is totally a joke, and any other interpretation is ridiculous. Now if you’ll excuse me,…I need to tweet this.

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
