And already I’m overwhelmed by twitter.

It’s mostly the blue text and the hashtags.  Let me elaborate:

So my friend, a fabulous (and famous) writer (who might be one of the two people who currently read this – thanks Tiff :D) tweeted that I started an account and people should follow.  Which was cool, and suddenly I had eight times as many followers as actual tweets.  And because I was only following about six people, most of whom are nerdy comedians, I followed all of them back.

Here’s where I add that she writes erotica.  And apparently so do her followers!  So when I open Twitter, I see this strange, bipolar mix of jokes and BDSM photos.  I find it delightful.  What overwhelms me is the visual setup of twitter- sort of a mashup of text sandwiched between @soandso and #internetyodeling; mixed up in all that are retweets from mystery people and advertisements.  It’s a strange thing, and I think I’ll wind up using it in a very one-sided way where I post but don’t read as much.
