The anti injustice campaign continues over at Humor Bloggers Dot Com. I'd like to use this occasion to get something off my chest. Is it me or has Twitter become a new haven for spam?
Now don't get me wrong. I like Twitter. It's a great time waster. But in a good way, not a waste of time if you know what I mean. I know others though who have stopped twittering but I'm afraid I'm still hooked. I mean how else would I know what a ditz Kirsty Alley was or how shallow John Mayer was. Or that John Larroquette has a blip.fm addiction. Or that Danny deVito is right over the edge. I mean sometimes Twitter's way better than, say, TMZ or Entertainment Tonight. Imagine if Michael Jackson had tweeted?
But as with anything else, you've got to take the good with the bad. And sometimes Twitter has become a deep injustice to my intelligence and my patience. For example, does anybody know what the white teeth secret is that dentists don't want you to know about? If you do, let me know, eh? People keep tweeting that question, but no one seems to know the answer. Well, except maybe for those tweeters that waste their 140 character messages - and my time - posing that question. It's what RevTwt is all about. People get paid for including links in their tweets that drive chirpers to product-laden sites. Hey, if I wanted to be inundated with ads, I'd watch TV!
Horoscopes. Another bizarre tweet subject. Why do people want other people to know what their horoscope is? Has anyone actually clicked on the link to see the horoscope of a total stranger. If you have, I hope you're not stalking, I mean following me. I mistakenly subscribed to this service when I started chirping and just recently unsubscribed. Just sharing a little TMI for my liking.
And what's with every wanna-be porn star in North America wanting to follow me? Not a week goes by where I don't get several notifications from users with erotic-sounding names that they're following me. Hey, I'm a happily married, middle-aged, white guy. If only we had Twitter in high school.
Finally a tweet pal of mine @deadrooster (now there's a username to go with this story) shared with me something that came his way, in a manner of speaking - a Twitvert for penis enlargement. Now these things are always coming my way as e-mail spam. How they found out I'll never know. But to cut our story short, metaphorically speaking, the link to the tweet promises men they can...
