I've had a Twitter account since 2009, but for a long time I really didn't fully understand it. First I thought it was Facebook if Facebook was only the status update. Then I discovered it was a convenient place to post a link to my blog.
Over the past six months or so I've gotten the hang of Twitter a little more -- to the chagrin of those who follow me, who have discovered that I livetweet TV a lot. I think the turning point was one night when the Saints kicked the shit out of the Colts, 62-7, on Sunday Night Football. Rather than do the normal, sane thing (change the channel), I livetweeted every time the Saints piled on to their already gargantuan lead.
Now I try to tweet five times a day. And though some days I don't tweet at all, I more than make up for that on nights that The Bachelor or NFL football are on.
So as I found myself getting close to 1,000 career tweets, I started to think if there was something profound or clever or earthshattering I could say in my 1,000th tweet.
And then this morning I noticed that I just reached 1,000 with the following tweet:
"I like those lyrics better."
The content was OK. But I feel like that's an epic fail of a 1,000th tweet. Oh, well. I can only hope that five years from now I'll be composing my 10,000th tweet and it'll be more profound.
