I think the secret is finding real people to tweet with, and I think I might have actually begun to meet some real human beings there (of course, I always had Anne and then Susan and Robin, and they are as real as real can be).
I want to confess that I unfollowed my first person today. Like the new student at her first high school dance, I was indiscriminate with who I followed in the beginning. But I just couldn’t take anymore of this certain twit’s inane New Age gobbledygook about the Universe and how much it loves me. I thought about it for a couple of days because I didn’t want to hurt her feewings. I mean she’s out there believing the Universe is sending her good things and I up and unfollow her? But I COULDN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE! It was like a constant stream from a bad *S*C*I*E*N*T*O*L*O*G*Y* commercial (Anne says never write the “S” word on your blog or they find you, kidnap you, and turn you into a Borg).
So I unfollowed her. Gone she is from my stream of consciousness. I hope the Universe can forgive me.
