Name Your Twitter Addiction

Name Your Twitter Addiction…

Twitter Addiction Definition Chart

Twitter:

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

Addiction:

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.

Totally hilarious! Twitter addiction 2) is totally me… composing tweets in my head while I go about my day. I know when it’s too long before even typing it so I try to reword and rework it in my head to make it <140 characters and/or more funny. 🙂

Funny! And now this is the point at which I have to decide whether to warn you to “stay away from the light” or “go towards the light”.. =P

Too funny. I’d say I’m definitely a social tweeter. I can go days without even thinking about it. But then, that doesn’t do much for my “social” life either.
