i have to say that i don't understand our relationship. from what others told me about you, i expected so much more. instead, this all feels so one sided and narcissistic. you make me feel old and incompetent. you make me want to sit on the front porch in a rocking chair and shake my cane at the kids driving too fast on my street. you make me want to say things like "whipper snappers", "young folk" and "dadgummit".
maybe your best characteristics are hidden from me...which is totally possible because even after all these weeks i only just figured out how to find out if i was "mentioned" in a tweet.
perhaps you also possess special time compression abilities that i have yet to find? i say this because of the amazing number of people i have found on twitter who swore off facebook with great pomp and circumstance because it was a "huge time waster" yet i find them happily tweeting away dozens of times in a day...it only makes sense that dozens of tweets would take less than a facebook status update. right? can you direct me to this feature?
you also seem really impersonal to me...at least with facebook i get to see photos of your kids and family and feel like i am connected with your life a little...it seems hard to get to know you 140 characters at a time. with facebook it seems i am talking more with a person. with twitter, i feel like i am talking to a computer.
and to be honest...it creeps me out that all tweets are saved in the national archives.
and if i want to be narcissistic...well...my blog gives me plenty of that and i am happy to spill my brain out in a few blog posts per week...but i have yet to find the perk to gushing out every thought that comes to mind...or reading everyone else's either...
i guess all of this is to say...i'm not sure we're going to make it, dadgummit.
