5 people I have met from Twitter….

Standard

My Twitter addiction started in August 2011 and since then has increased dramatically. I used to love Facebook but now I rarely go on to it. At first Twitter seemed daunting but in no time I found my way and totally loved it.

Since 2011 I have Tweeted 23577 Tweets and I have 780 followers. I recall my first couple of months and thinking will I ever get a 100 followers.I love Twitter as you can follow and interact with so many people all over the world even if it has a 140 character limit. My blogging journey also started due to Twitter and has grown. I have made some really awesome Twitter friends and I cant wait to meet them though I have also met several of them.

My list of 5 Tweeters include :

My friends were all green eyed monsters about how I knew Jenny and how she was so lovely to me. Aunty Jen as I know call her on Twitter has awesome tweets and always replies to her followers.

My digital addiction

Standard

Last week an electricity cut all day made me very uneasy as I was not able to Blog , Tweet, BBM or Whatsapp unless it as very important in attempt to save my battery life.

However my plan of action didnt last too long as i felt the need to use my phone for the numerous tasks i use it for normally.This lead to the phone dying by midday , the electricity was only due to come back on at 4PM. I then decided to read for abit then decided to spend quality time chatting with my mum and gran for about 2 hours .

During this bonding session I realised ahhh my laptop was still fully charged from the night before. So with a smile as big as a Cheshire cat i went off to get my laptop to charge my phone and my external hard drive. I then decided to to clean up my hard drive , put on a playlist and charge my phone at the same time. Wow such great multitasking skills us women have.

And then there was light Eureka , i could put my phone to charge properly and both my netbook and laptop.However it later dawned on me that evening how I am totally addicted to this digital era and how the art of conversation has become a dying art.

Its so totally evident as people can no longer hold a decent conversation. Even the learners of today write in text language and no longer use proper English… Yes I am addicted to the digital age but i can hold a conversation and I use proper English when I write.Presses the ESC KEY to end
