Do You Tweet?
After months and months of making fun of Twitter and all of those hashtags I see on t.v., I decided maybe it would be kind of fun after all, and I joined this past spring.
I have to admit, it has been kind of fun. Twitter is an amusing distraction from writing when I need inspiration, and it's a nice way to zone out for 10 minutes if the children happen to actually be napping at the same time.
I'm surprised to say I even feel like I know some of my favorite Tweeps/Twitterers/Twitter Users. I know, I know. Sounds lame. But truly, there is a sense of camaraderie on Twitter if you form the right network. For instance, if you had a rough day, there is comfort in knowing dozens of other moms are online venting about their days. If something funny happened and you Tweet it, people are excited to share in your fun. If you need a laugh, there are some very funny people on there.
If you are on the fence and thinking about giving it a go, I'd recommend it. Add people to your Following list and see who you meet.
If you join, be sure to message me at @MNFranticMama so we can follow each other!
