I'm sorry I've neglected you so. I've been a lousy "friend" this past year or so we've been together. I have no excuses except that I don't really "get you." I haven't spent the time needed to get to know you better and understand what makes you tick. I don't know the difference between "wall-to-wall" and "superwall." I have no idea what a "little green patch" is and I don't know what to do with all these snowballs people keep throwing at me. Where do they go? Do I throw them back? Should I build a fort?
I do have one little teeny confession to make. There is a reason why I haven't been around and why I haven't updated my profile info and my photo albums and why I haven't joined any fan pages or groups. I've been seeing someone else. I'll just come right out and say it. Twitter is so much fun and much less complicated. And as far a social media sites go, Twitter can kick your butt any day! (oops, sorry. I realize that was a tad harsh, but hey, the truth hurts.)
See, my life right now is so full and complicated that I need something simple and quick to help me communicate my thoughts to others. Twitter is simple and quick. I can reach hundreds of followers with one little click and when I've needed opinions or assistance the response has been overwhelming and instantaneous. I like that. Twitter is easy to navigate and update, link to and promote anything. With one simple tweet I can reach far beyond my inner circle of friends. And if I need to post pictures or talk about something in greater length, I have my blog. :)
So, I won't drag this out any longer. I guess the point of this letter is for me to say that I'd still like to be "friends" with you and I won't sever any ties right now but please don't expect me to hang out all day sending "virtual drinks" to my "friends"... frankly, I'd much rather have a real one! ;)
If you need me, you know where I'll be... with my tweeps:
