- Chocolate (as always)
- Sims 3 (far too addictive)
- And Twitter
I have been tweeting (or twittering as I prefer to say) for quite a while now but it is only recently that I unlocked the magic and started loving it. You see, it is a SOCIAL network. And while my tweeting was fine as it was, it was all about me. Now, I'm starting to get the whole social part of it. I am replying to tweets and making friends (or at least aquaintances). I am tweeting about anything and everything (though I do keep it pg and as interesting as possible).
But as I said, it is about socialising, it's about connecting. And I think that is exactly the reason why I love it. No matter what time it is, there is always someone to chat to on Twitter. Being stuck at home can be lonely (especially when Chris is at work) and while I've tried forums and facebook and letters, Twitter is the only one where the replies are instant. Perhaps that's not always a good thing, but with connecting, it certainly helps to know that there are other people out there at that exact precise moment. But with Twitter, it's even better. I can connect instantly but if I miss when someone replies to me, it doesn't matter as that message is still there when I come back on.
I'm still a beginner when it comes to Twitter but I think I have finally pulled myself out of that 'newbie' phase (which, of course, there is nothing wrong with but it is kind of limiting) and am now happy to proclaim (apparently very publicly) that I love Twitter.
If you're on Twitter, or decide to sign up, make sure you add me @Tamara_Epps and send me a message.
