Whenever a friend finds out I use Twitter, this is basically what happens:
First, they make fun of me. “What the fuck? What are you doing, saying ‘I’m taking a dump’ hahaha!” Then, after a couple weeks go by, they revisit their disdain, and of course make the standard Twitter/Twat joke. To my detriment, I still find these jokes funny.
As time goes by, they start asking about it more and more. “So, I heard Shaq is on there. And Hammer too.”
Finally, inevitably, they say, “So, I think I’m getting on Twitter. It’s cool.”
At this point I feel like telling them that it’s not really cool, per se, but it is Something. Then I tell them to follow me, and if they ever type “LOL” or anything of that sort, I will not only unfollow them, but I will probably have to punch them in the face.
