Assassination in 140 Characters

Assassination in 140 Characters

Committing.

Committing yourselves, your words , your thoughts to paper easy ?


No quite frankly no.

It is even harder to commit to twitter ; it can move So fast .

You just have to dive in.

Which is hard for an introvert.

Quite frankly ,it is like playing hot potato.

You don't want to be the one left hanging .

And who knew you can assassinate yourself in 140 characters.


Yes 140 characters to stand tall .

140 characters to link to your cause.

Though it takes over 140 characters to explain yourself many a time.

Got a great thought ?

You've one shot .

  1. SO very true, and very eloquently put. You can do a lot of damage in 140 characters! I find if I leave words out to be succinct it changes the meaning.

    1. It is very hard and especially for someone as quiet as myself.

  5. I like the fact that twitter moved fast, so what you say is literally of the moment, however you are right, there as anywhere else online you do have to choose your words carefully, or be thick skinned at any fall out!

  6. I do often struggle as I can sometimes waffle on, but I'm getting there :-) x

  7. I find I always have too much to say to fit into those 140 characters. I must admit to being a bit of a lurker on Twitter, I don't always jump in and say anything!

  11. This is so true, I tend to have little bursts of twitter time. Sometimes I can be on it and then not use it as much. thinking of trimming down a sentence to 140characters has never been so tricky. x

  13. I love twitter but I understand your frustration - sometimes no matter how hard you try, 140 characters is just not enough

  15. the trouble with twitter is trying to get across what you mean, as I know sometimes we can pick up wrong on what being said and take offence. There is no expression or tone, and I have seen me read back some after I have tweeted them and think "no thats not what I meant to say" and delete it before offence is caused. (and hope said person has not seen it)

  16. i love twitter and have found some absolutely amazing people through it, but i can totally understand how you feel. i am a total introvert too, and quite the agoraphobe, so to me twitter has been wonderful in finding friends, good reads, inspiration and more.
