Yesterday Twitter was a tease.
And not a very nice tease at that.
I couldn't get my tweet deck to work and never mind about tweeting from the desktop. That stupid whale kept cropping up saying that twitter was over capacity. What does that even mean? How dare twitter be over capacity.
So instead of getting angry and stomping around my office. (I have been off twitter for a couple of days for vacation and while I can quit anytime I want I hate interventions) I forced myself to do what I always do when faced with something I don't like. I looked for the silver lining. (It was too early in the day to start drinking.)
And you know what? I didn't find it.
Twitter sucked me in with its snazzy 140 characters or less instant message system. It seduced me with all of the new friends I have made. It tricked me into trying new things and convinced me that blogging was a good thing too.
And how does twitter repay me today? It stopped working. Right when I needed it most.
I missed important conversations regarding Firefly. I missed blog updates from my tried and true's. I missed being there in real time when my tweeps needed me most. Okay, that is a little melodramatic, but you get my meaning.
It's going to take a couple of days for me to forgive twitter, if I ever do.
Oh who am I kidding. I won't be able to live without it.
Don't look now, Twitter here I come!
