I finally have to face it: I’m a Twitter-holic. Some get their social media fix with Facebook, but it doesn’t give me nearly the same thrill. Here are some of the ways I recognized my addiction problem and if you have had similar experiences, please share. Together, we can heal.
10: You can no longer befriend non-Twitter users.
9: Its not that you don’t care about other tweets, but you really just scan through for ones mentioning you.
8: You say to co-workers: “Thank God its #Follow Friday!”
7: You dream in 140 characters.
6: When a newbie follows you, you decide to hold off on following them back until they get a bit more popular.
5: News organizations no longer exist. Example: “Did you hear that a shooting just happened 4 seconds ago? Ya, Twitter just told me.”
4: You giggle knowingly when a newbie confuses hashtags with @ replies. I mean, really, how silly are they?
3: A popular Twitterbug celebrity mentions you in a tweet and you get an incredible sense of self-worth.
2: After days of getting nothing retweeted, you stay in bed with bon bons and watch Oprah.
1: You consciously scan ongoing conversations with friends for witty gems and then interrupt: “That’s funny! I’m gonna tweet that right now.”
