this week #twitterkills thursday #26 is dedicated to the people on twitter who try to meet you through your tweets. like seriously.
personally, i've met a lot of great people through twitter. a lot of folks who are a lot of fun, would be great to hang out with, and i think are cool as shit. then there are the people who i GIVE no indication that i want to be friends with. those are the folks that when i say..."i'm headed to the zoo..." they @reply me back and ask me what time like we gonna meet up there. if i say "i'm at perimeter mall.." even though they've just finished saying they were sitting around the house they say, "what store...i'm at the nike store..".
*seesmic raccon side eye*
it's the people you actually get a little scared to tell "what you're doing" or "where you're at", for fear that they'd actually follow you there. it could even be your exes who are stalking your twitter to see what you're up to. and magically show up some place you've just tweeted you were at. i'm not saying you can't be in the vicinity of a twitter friend and they say, "hey, i'm up the street...". but most of us know how we react to seeing a twitter friend in public by accident.
@studiogenius: i think i just saw one of my twitter followers...
*crickets*... (i am not saying WHERE or WHO...) no one ever ask who. because they are scared it was them. lol. but, i'm not talking about those kind of run ins. i'm talking about the people who you think live in Utah, but then you name a location and they surprise you with.."i'm up the street from you...". creepy. lol. turn your gps on, join 4square, put your locations in your tweets. watch how many people start telling you they are "close" to you right now. yet, they never actually say where they are. which makes you feel like a field mouse..and their stalker hawker ass is ready to swoop down and abduct you.
*aiming at your binoculars*...*pow* ,*pow* one for each eye. *aiming at your gps*...*pow*. *shooting at the google map directions in your hand *pow*
