Twitter takes away from verbal socialization

Twitter has officially taken over.

I’m not really sure how or why but there is talk of Twitter, “twittering” or “tweets” everywhere. I have a Twitter account and I’m proud to say that it doesn’t consume my life…at least not yet.

Apparently because of this I’m behind the times. (And if YOU’re not on Twitter, then you’re seriously not with it.)

Its popularity increased earlier this year when all the celebs began to “tweet.” Even the old ones! I guess America was surprised to know that Barbara Walters could use a computer.

Twitter has become what all other social networking sites dream to be: phenomenally used worldwide and all over the news. Its verbs have quickly become more acceptable to use than ones like “Facebooking” or “MySpacing” and I wonder why. Social networking is the only way to go with friends, family and co-workers.

Social networking: To join or not to join

If you’re one of the only people left in America that doesn’t have a social networking profile, congratulations! You may be wondering why in the world anyone would be interested in joining a social networking Web site, so let me tell you a little bit about my experiences with them.

I began my social networking tour with LiveJournal when I was in middle school. There I would tell the world about my love for Joey Fatone (from N’SYNC…duh.) Once in high school, I decided that it was time to move onto MySpace. By that time, my music tastes had changed and I was interested in the MySpace music pages. In college, I was introduced to Facebook, and just recently I joined Twitter. It’s been a long social networking road for me, but I can honestly say there have been times when it’s really helped, though there’s also been a time when it’s hurt.
