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.
