Tweet-te Raho!!!

Considering the amount of time I spend on twitter each day and in an attempt to certify myself a true twitter-aholic (read Twit), I am going to publish the following list –

You know you are a Twitter-aholic when:

1. With every major or minor thought in your head, you are already trying to compose a 140 character dialogue to tweet it. (Have seen people who write tweets like –> *heard sound* *woke-up* *realised nothing* *going back to sleep*) πŸ˜€

2. You are hanging out with friends and family and they are begging you to get off your phone and stop tweeting. (Happened to me today :D)

3. Yes, you are tweeting from your phone.. because you just need to tweet all the time!

4. You tweet while driving (done that) (I think they will come up with a law against this soon) (*gulp!*)

5. You can proudly claim to know people who are bigger twits than you! (twits = twitteraholic —> Look at the top right widget. Yeah I’m a twit :D)

6. You have participated in one of the rollicking trending of hashtags marathon. Great fun! Especially when we trended #iconicindianads

7. You start hashtagging each conversation with friends – even on IMs and SMS. (also, if you know what a hashtag is :-P)

8. You write everything in a hashtag and create bizarre and insane hashtags. I’m a newbie at this, but some great examples would be Dr. Gonzo, TyagiG and Nothing Man (great people all of them! Follow them at your own risk πŸ™‚ ) #YouCanAlsoDoItLikeThis.

9. You feel very happy when someone RTs your tweet (RT is ReTweet you nOOB!)

10. You have a lot of fun on twitter and start believing that you are making great friends there (this could also be a sign of how you don’t actually have a life, but that point of view is just of people who don’t get it πŸ˜‰ )

11. Follower count matters! You feel bad each time this count drops and hope it was a bot leaving and not someone you bored with your tweets. Yeah it matters.

Also, you have to admit, signs of a true twit is to be writing this post :D. So we will call it number 12. (For those of you who know me in real life.. don’t you dare laugh at this number!!! :-P)

Know of some more signs? Please do add to this list.

  5. Anon says:

    Hey, landed here randomly…from guess where..twitter!

    13. When you feel like you have actually talked to a celebrity coz u replied to their tweet!

    14. When u name drop ppl in conversations Jst coz u follow dem on twitter and noe u can “talk” to dem nytime.

    Eg. – during the whole 3 idiots controversy…”yaar yeh chetu ko kya ho gaya hai..samjhana padhega usse..itne badhe writer bane ke chindi nahi hote…pagal hai yaar woh!”

    dats all I cn think off…nw I hvta go fight wid smone on twitter coz he called me jingoistice…hw mny expletives cn one fit in 140 characters…..#pointtoponder

  7. Pranay says:

    Bwahaaha ! Awesome sardarni , love it xoxo

  8. Hahahaha! Only a Twit like you could have made this list. I still have a long way to go as far as becoming a twit goes… but aap jaise senior netizens ka aashirwaad raha toh main bhi jald hi Twitter-aholic ho jaoongi.

    Fun read!

    Happy Blogging!

  9. Sree says:

    good read πŸ™‚
    Although i feel, as of late, not to tweet much and thinks its cuz of some kinda online depression.

  10. 13. if you read this post and all of the comments too πŸ™‚

  11. Β± says:

    Post the orkutization of facebook, twitter is the only digital addiction worth having – anonymity is easier, apathy is simpler and the verbal deluge is shorter πŸ™‚

    And in today’s online world, if someone says they are not addicted to some such site or the other, they’re in a state of ‘digital denial’.

    Loved your post. Even more I loved the tact of making a confession sound funny.

    Proofing the pudding, I’m retweeting this.

    Ps- Even if you wrote this post in Hebrew, you couldn’t have hidden the significance of number 12 in your real life. I could hear the 1,25,000 screams as the count crossed 11….

    • sunainak says:

      Hey! First of all, I have to thank you. That’s one of the most thoughtful comments I have ever received on my blog πŸ™‚

      AND .. You gave me a good idea to rename this blog post – how does confessions of a tweet-aholic sound? πŸ™‚

      And thank you for retweeting it. Feels great that someone really liked what I wrote πŸ™‚

      • Β± says:

        I think your title is pretty good. Because it was instinctively what came to your mind. Like the rest of the post.
        Don’t tamper with a good moment of insanity πŸ™‚

        As for the number 12, and your explanation(which you edited and corrected), go back and read my comment again.
        It was not all that cryptic when I confessed to being a Sardar myself. I thought the 1,25,000 was pretty telling.
        And I don’t know what it stands for in hebrew πŸ™‚

        You’ve just had a number 12 blonde moment, all by yourself Sunaina. Completely self inflicted πŸ˜€
        (But like the post, thoroughly entertaining).

        Keep writing and keep in touch, addict πŸ™‚

  12. srinistuff says:

    Loveeeeeeeeeee it…Yes I’m a twitterholic!

  13. Daksh says:

    Good job, way to go !!

  14. Sathish says:

    It’s a honest confession i guess… More or less similar to when we are introduced to the world of Internet and emails… There were days when I used to keep checking mails through mid-night in the initial days πŸ™‚ anyways this is a good symptom checker for knowing one is twit-holic… Lucky or unlucky I’m still not yet πŸ˜›

  15. Subin says:

    Also when you are busy tweeting about a hockey match in the stadium without actually watching the match.

    Ya frnds, she did so in India-Spain hockey match. πŸ˜€

  16. Subin says:

    And when the tag cloud in your blog has ‘Twitter’ with the largest font size… πŸ˜€

  17. Nothingman says:

    Nothing about tweeting from the pot? Best place and best frame of mind to tweet πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the mention πŸ˜‰

  21. Kedar says:

    Hahaa.. nice blogpost that was…
    People mostly copy such kinda stuff from some other site or blog.. but kudos for your original composition.
    Another indication of being a twitter-holic: When twitter is down…, you feel as if somebody has cut your oxygen supply.. πŸ˜‰

    • sunainak says:

      Thank you πŸ™‚ I am like a homing pigeon with twitter. Have to keep going back and checking every couple of hours. So totally know what you mean πŸ™‚ Thank you for the comment :-))

  25. Kitz007 says:

    Very Interesting tweePost, ah this is another sign of twittadiction, to add certain twi, twee, before the words to let others realize, yes we are talking about twitter πŸ˜›

  26. Anaggh Desai says:

    Nice and now tells me a lot more about you

  27. maverickbaba says:

    Awesome….tweesome !!
    My no 13. One feels elated when a bigger twit like you replies or mentions him.

    • sunainak says:

      Hah! Aisa kuch nahi hota. I used to feel the same way. No one is big or small on twitter and that is the beauty of it. Don’t let numbers fool you. πŸ™‚

  28. Rocky says:

    That’s an awesome post which denotes me as a true twitter-oholic. specially the point 4 depicts it, I did it many times and just had a close shave on road once *GodWanredMe, butm still d same.. lol πŸ˜› . Well , all in all , nice Post !!

  29. […] It all started somewhere mid-Feb when I was pinged on chat by a friend – “Would you like to be a #BigLoser?”. Clearly any normal person would be taken aback by such a question and their first reaction would be to see red. But clearly the word ‘Normal’ makes me feel like an oxymoron (Look ma, I made a funny!) and the presence of a ‘#’ in front of any string of words always manages to hold my attention. (Refer to an earlier confession about being a Twitteraholic“ […]

    And btw, the twitter widget is on the top left, not top right!

    Happy tweeting and Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚
