So a person I follow on Twitter (@StraightEdge_, in case you were wondering) sent out a question: What to do to celebrate his 1000th tweet. I made a suggestion – do some ‘real life’ tweeting. In other words, do a drive-by to a few people’s places (hopefully your friends, who are also on twitter) and leave a hand-written 140 character or less message taped/pinned/stuck to their door to find later on. A step up from that, would be to leave little 140 character note in a loved one’s purse/wallet/etc, just letting them know just how much you love them… or something like that, anyway.
Thus, with that thought in mind, I thought I might take my own advice. With a humble tweet-count of 775 (a fair bit yet off 1000, not that a good weekend of typing wouldn’t bump up my total), I figure it wouldn’t hurt to give it a go anyway, don’t you think? So here we go… this post today, is the last tweet I did (as of this second, and it isn’t actually reproduced verbatim), with a little quickie illustration to go alongside it, just for fun! My twitter-stream seems to mostly consist of rather random nonsense, questions as to why I am so tired some of the time, and celebrations of whatever tasty tidbit of food I might have at hand.
So anyhow, yes… a tweet with a ‘traditional’ touch… still 140 characters or less, but written by my own hand instead of typed out on a computer. Writing by hand is just different from tippity-tapping on a keyboard, isn’t it? Well… I think it is anyway. Besides, I like my handwriting!
