Twitter Fail

So, I was all ready to get on twitter (for the first time in over a month) to rave about Serial Central, which is not a collaboration of serial killers, but rather an amazing new idea that gives you a piece of fiction every day, (rock on Lua, Miss Rosemary,Barb, et al), and then I saw this:

But then I tried again and it was all okay, so not that big of a FAIL after all.  But I got a screen grab.  And those last FOREVER.  Take that twitter.  Also, when I was on twitter I saw I had a direct message.  Ooh, exciting!  Someone randomly followed me (but, hey, that’s good right?), and as I must have been feeling rather welcoming, I followed back.  And this person sent me a direct message!  Oooh, the intrigue.  Imagine my disappointment, then, when I got this…

Huh.  So I thought about it a while, and sent this in return:

I haven’t heard back, so I guess he’s not in the extermination business.  Or maybe, like me, he only checks twitter once a month.  This is why I am anonymous.  But if you’re gonna send me messages on twitter, you’d better have a sense of humour.

Someone please send me something funny on twitter.  I’ll totally reply.  Probably a month later.  But still.

    “which is not a collaboration of serial killers” haha but wouldn’t that be something! 🙂
    Oh twitter and it’s over capacity whale! I get at that at least once a week… And I don’t even tweet that much!
    Bhahahaha I wish I could see that guy’s face when he read that! Oh I hope he replies and you must tell us what he says 🙂 Twitter needs more people with good sense of humor. Or you should be around more 😉

    …maybe the over capacity whale is actually a marketing ploy for twitter to try to show everyone how popular it actually is. Ah, clever twitter…

    I should probably not make fun of people with far more influence than me…but those type of people are unlikely to frequent this blog…and those that do will have enough of a sense of humour to find this funny.

    I agree, twitter needs more humour, especially now that Old Spice Man is gone!

    “…maybe the over capacity whale is actually a marketing ploy for twitter to try to show everyone how popular it actually is.” Thank you. That is what I’ve always believed and nothing will dissuade me!

    Yeah, I knew it!

    Also, I bet they just like putting up that cute picture of the birds trying to carry the whale.

    Although, resent the implication that us twitter users are a whale. Totally laying off the biscuits.

    Oh, God, it’s gotten so bad that even twitter is calling me fat.

    I hate when it does that! And thank you very much for your promotion. It means a lot 🙂
