Why the hell I tweet?

Am about to reach my 1000th tweet , that means must have wasted around 1,40,000 character's of twitter space- may be would have added to some carbon foot print also . No worries , shall plant some trees (virtually on twitter).

I think twitter is gross waste of time , and is seriously affecting my career , personal and professional life - must tell that was about to fall off the treadmill running at a speed of 10km/hr because tried tweeting while running .

Well that's not the only pitfall of being on twitter as there is always a hospital near by to fix you up , should you fall of the treadmill . Real issue is curiosity ? There is nothing more intriguing in life than twitter .

Even after having tweeted 1000 tweets and following 100 people , some questions remain un answered :

- How to resist temptation of tweeting amidst an important meeting , driving , jogging or ****ing etc etc?

- Why some tweets carry only #hashtags and twitter handles and nothing else?

- WTF does FTW means ?

- @jhunjhunwala is so rude still people standup when he "arrives"?

- What the hell is "you follow me , i'll follow you" concept?

- How come @rameshsrivats is so funny yet many other suck?

- Who is @spymaami?

- Once on twitter , how to think beyond 140 characters in daily life?

- How come @sidin 's mediocre tweet is retweeted by 100 people and no one looks at most wittiest of my tweets?

- What's the logic of @toptweets picking tweets , how come my tweet has never been re tweeted?

- Why do some people just keep retweeting left right n centre?

- How come two genuine people @amancool5 and @ashwinsanghi and some 50 other still following me and the rest of the ******** are going crazy about Bieber , Jieber or what ever that ******** is ?

- finally , after all this , WHY THE HELL I @vikaspgoel TWEET?

hey good read.

the mediocre and top tweets part is so true!

IPL never trended, but shit like #adsda do. Sometimes, i think - really, twitter is making up

I agree this entire phenomina of social networks is very dangerous if not used properly, I have seen teens getting on Social network & informing more than what they should. later on this become a searchable record for life.

with Facebook facing Privacy isue, we need to be very careful.

You almost spoke my mind and I am just 200+ tweets old! Looks should learn from your experience and quit..like quit smoking quit alcohol etc.. It is in fact become a group of self serving clan which feeds on one another.. call it the @jhunjhunwala gang, along with @smitaprakash , @sonaliranade ,@pawandurani , @twilightfairy and the angrez da puttar bhadralok bastion remainent of the last century @KanchanGupta
