Twittering

I have stubbornly remained the only person on the planet to not use Twitter, but I think I’m finally caving in. I was at a lecture at the local university about policy and the elections, and the woman kept referencing all the useful policy things you can learn from watching Twitter. My friend convinced me it could be an easy way for a busy person to get back in touch with the rest of the world. So I signed up and promptly started following everything education-related that I could find. I’m not going to lie – Twitter is actually way more interesting than I had expected.

 

Unfortunately, actually putting my own things onto Twitter is still hilariously hard for me. I just figured out how to write a tweet and I think I successfully shortened a URL. I don’t know what all the little @ and # symbols do. I feel like someone’s grandma just learning how to use the internet… and swear I’m really 24.

 

Also, it’s awkward because I’m currently practicing writing tweets to no one.  Want to come follow me? I’m @mathinaz. (Is that where the @ sign goes? haha)

    Twitter is so hard! I’ve had one for months and I have all the same questions.

    I have one too, and I don’t really understand it. Too much trouble — it’s like all of the annoying parts of facebook.
