I thought for today I would go back in time. It would have been nice to have a time travel machine at this this stage because what I am about to share with you actually needs some explaining, I think.
I have seen a few videos of these and thought well, this looks like something I would find amusing. So I asked Twitter to send me my archive. Now, going through 2000+ tweets (some of them really just a pit of dullness) is quite a mission, but I chose 12 that I thought might be amusing/concerning/funny.
Starting with my 1st official tweet
I just couldn't think of something more creative? Lovely. The problem is, it is there.Forever. #justsaying
Then it kind of went down hill
Really? Who in his right mind would only use this few characters and waste a tweet that could have made a difference in somebody's day? Maybe I thought "hey, this would remind me some day" of what? It is insignificant for other people really. I don't think they care what you are counting down to. Oh wait, this was a month before my wedding. Who would have guessed.
Hmm, do I want an apple? Am I referring to Apple inc? Hmm maybe I am an apple. Goodness. I wish I could remember. What if it is something of significance? Maybe a password for a bank vault or something! haha
(What a revelation!!!Pitbull is WHITE?!)I am very, very ashamed (and amused) of this tweet. I am sorry Pitbull. I have NO IDEA what I was thinking...It sounded great in my head.
All the spelling errors! And I should be thankful. There is random people that think I am interesting. And then did I mean this literally or "twitter wise"?! This is a bit of a concern.
Sometimes I am just plain idiotic. I have an idea this had something to do with our London trip. Who would have guessed that?! It's that typical thing of "let's post a one word hash tag tweet and hope someone asks me about it". I am still waiting for that question...
And then I was also one of those people. I don't have anything to say. Oh wait, it is cold, let's say something about the weather. Oh thank you captain obvious!
And sometime you need a kick in the face. I think this was when I saw the first videos of Llamas in Hats or somebody the unicorn. Dear me.
WOW! Aren't I just a ray of sunshine. Again one of those wasted tweets, This isn't Facebook. Nobody cares and nobody is going to ask you what is wrong. I was still working at Flight Centre though...
(Today is a bad day. How much more rude and incompetence should I accept?)Hmm, another ray of sunshine-brought to you by Ivyline. I am thinking to myself. Was it really necessary to share this?
Oh.my.word. I was one of those people too! This is so sad! I wonder if I was thinking "hmm lets look for some attention". Where should I hide my face?
This is getting ridiculous. I really was a lousy tweeter. I did move back though.. something positive happened. Yeah me.
Looking through this tweets I want to slap myself. I have to say I changed quite a bit and my tweets are pretty cool lately. (hahaha no shame in self promotion). You can click on the twitter icon on the left and follow me ;)
I have learned a few things
♥ Once it is on the net, it is really difficult to get rid of
♥ If you thought twitter is a great way to get some "support" or "haai shame" you are sadly mistaken. Twitter is for the cool, down to the point people. They don't have time for sorry sandy.
♥ Keep it short and simple but not one word or encryptions nobody has time for deciphering your issues.
♥ Something in your head does not always look good on paper/the net.
♥ Oh, and when people follow you-be thankful. Without followers you would be an egg icon (that's when you don't have a profile picture).
I found this quite amusing. I hope you did too. Don't make the same mistakes I did! Do you have a tweet(s) you wish you never put out there? Please share with us in the comments!
Have a brilliant weekend. I am off to a kitchen tea.
Speak to you soon!
