Seven Signs of Twitter Addiction

filed under: Miscellaneous on April 18, 2010

If you cant get enough of twitter…then this list is for you. 

Er…Me.  Its totally for me.

Seven Signs of a Slight Twitter Addiction

1. You upgrade your cell phone to one that has easier typing capabilities and better internet access.

2. You start #phrasing people in real life.

Example: Your husband says the meatloaf was a little dry.  And you look at him and say, "Pound doityourself"

3. You feel sad if no one @mentioned you today.

4. Your BFF makes you angry and you consider unfollowing her just so she knows how serious you are.

5. You get disappointed when your favorite celebrity isn't on twitter. (Hear that Ina Garten?)

And when your favorite celebrity is on twitter, sending them tweets feels like you are talking directly to them.  Its like you are… friends.  (insert happy warm fuzzies here)

6. In your mind, re-tweeting someones awesome blog post is better then actually commenting on their blog. #guilty

7.  When twitter is down you are suddenly overcome with the most urgent
need to tweet and you check the site compulsively until it is back up.


I might have a problem.

    I have an ancient cell phone that I do “Pay as you go” with and just use for emergencies. However, I have a laptop in my living room and being a stay at home mom, I’m on the laptop, off and on throughout the day like a lot of people are on their phones. But… maybe since I’m dealing with such a BIG screen compared to that of a phone, I’m partial to Facebook instead of Twitter, and I just can’t juggle them both. I have a Twitter account, but it’s set to automatically update from my Facebook statuses, so I never actually deal with Twitter directly, or follow anyone through it.
    That being said… this post was still hysterical! Amanada… how I wish we lived closer and could have a girls night out! You crack me up. Maybe we’ll both make to Blogher one year and can meet up. I’ve never been… have you?

    That gave me a good laugh at the end of the day – thanks!

    Have to admit…I’m just a twitter imposter! I haven’t learned all the ins and outs yet. I love reading your tweets and finding all the cool people you follow!
    I did just try something though.

    So I have to agree with Karen since I am already addicted to the internet (according to Chris). I don’t think it would be good for me to get into something else!
    And I totally doing get the# or the@.
    See I told you I so wasn’t cool!

    You’re list made me giggle. It is just too fun and TOO TRUE! (I’m following you on Twitter now too….)

    truer words were never #spoken. And I’m trying to ease up on my twitter contest addiction. Best to focus on improving my blog than on wasted tweets 😀

    ditto to every single one of those (I loved the meatloaf comment.)
