Tweet tweet, oh fricken chicken, how do I delete


I have finally joined the twitter-verse. Quick think of something profound and then share it! I think that's how this works as evidenced by infamous tweeters like Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou, Swiss soccer player Michel Morganella and our very own Eliota Sapolu Fuimaono. Oh no! I accidentally hit enter, oh no! Delete, delete, where is the bloody delete?!? There goes my Olympic dream (it was definitely twitter, not the lack of any sporting bone in my entire body).

I suddenly feel the need to hash tag something (even though I'm not quite sure what the hash tag is for). Clueless# OldFogey# CompletelyAncient# AllTooComplicated# Why-didn't-they-invent-all-this-when-I-was-still-in-school-and-still-had-enough-energy/braincells-to-pick-up-new-fangled-things# Why-does-my-smartphone-make-me-feel-so-dumb?# Questions-for-the-Universe#

Now I can share all my deep and meaningful thoughts with the universe ...............................................
............................................................................................................................................... I haven't thought of anything deep and meaningful for the last 5 seconds.  Oh no! Am facing the distinct possibility I don't have any deep and meaningful thoughts generally. Other peoples' tweets keep on popping up.....oh the pressure.....hmmm ....that one links to a really interesting article. Click. I'm-as-easily-distracted-as-a-puppy# Am-quite-sure-if-there-was-social-media-when-I-was-in-school-I-would-have-flunked-out# Oh hashtags you are so satisfying- how did I ever express myself without you!

I'm going to RT which google tells me means re-tweet- that way I will look clever by association. I just re-tweeted without giving any context...hmmmm.... perhaps not so clever after all. Perhaps I'll just go back to my blog. My warm, safe, familiar blog where I can delete and edit at will. And write about tweeting so that you can all follow my flailing and fraught adventures and attempts to be funny by following me @TeineSamoaSyd

LOL welcome to twitter. Dont chuck in the towel just yet. It can be fun in the Twitterverse, I promise! Like, where else can one... get into an argument abt writer ethics with Jodi Picoult, make fun of Eliota and rugby's lack of intellect ( and he cant tackle you and yell at you), find out what KimKardashian is eating for breakfast, ask people what the hell "skux" means because thats what girls r calling yr teen son, and more...LOL

Ooohhh I like to make fun of people for lack of intellect (but normally I just do it internally) so maybe it is the place for me after all! Lol!!! Thanks for breaking the blog comment drought! It was getting dire! I hear from the cool hipsters in my life (aka my younger brother who is a high school teacher) that skux means cool AND attractive- which from fb and your blog seems pretty accurate. I hope you are taking full credit! I am already teaching Lagi the phrase 'I got it from my Mama' in anticipation!

Lol, if you're not careful - it becomes your lazy blog where you share your thoughts in 140 characters or less. Welcome to twitter!

Thanks for the heads up Fotu- Hmmm it will be my laziness v my inability to be succinct. Battle of the titans!!!! Which will win! Lol!
