Dear wise readers,
Enlighten me, what is the point of twitter? I stayed up late (it’s 4 am in France) rewatching the Mets win that first game after 9/11, so I decided not to blog tonight. And yet as I lay in my bed, contemplating the meaning of life and other deep thoughts such as the unthinkable fact that my chocolate stash is now depleted, I kept coming back to Twitter, and it’s reason for existence.
From what I can see, it’s basically just a social network for celebrities. Famous people tweet what they’re doing and everyone gets super excited that Eminem is eating Jello. Is that true? Am I catastrophically wrong? Do normal people actually interact on Twitter?
The only other reason I can come up with is using it for professional reasons. My mom has a Twitter account that she seems to use a lot, but it’s all about computer chips and semiconductor and other things that I don’t understand 😉
Lastly, if the hashtag has now come to Facebook, what is Twitter’s standout feature?
Live long and prosper \V/

PS: Am I the only one who thinks that the Facebook hashtag is incredibly lame?
PPS: Happy Birthday to one of my best friends, who turns 16 today. I love you Parmesan! ❤
