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*) 😀
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 🙂 ) #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 😉 )
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.
