Twitter is a social-texting site that allows people to give constant real-time updates about what’s going on in their lives at every. given. moment.
You know those idiotic, mundane status updates you see on Facebook all the time? With Twitter, you can tell your friends, “Going to eat soup now”…..”Pee still burning”…..”Just watched ‘Judge Judy'”……”Think I either have the clap or I’m pregnant. Let’s clap if I’ve got the clap”…..”meeting with parole officer, then lunch with mom” all the time, any time during the day.
So needless to say, I’ve avoided this latest trend. To be honest, gleefully including myself on this list, most people just aren’t that interesting. I hate to break it to some of you, but you aren’t. Not enough to warrant constant streaming of your thoughts and activities.
It’s the same reason why I’d never do one myself (though I had the idea of using Twitter to do a special The Kids….real-time report on The Oscars…), because it’d more than likely look like this:
- 8:08am SH*T I AM SO LATE FOR WORK I DON’T HAVE TIME TO FUCKING TWITTER U TWITS
- 8:15am taking a dump, reading Calvin and Hobbes
- 8:35am still taking a dump, reading X-Men
- 8:45am just finished dump and OMG SH*T I AM SO LATE FOR WORK I DON’T HAVE TIME TO FUCKING TWITTER U TWITS
- 9:17am just got into work, punched a baby on subway on my way out of frustration
- 9:21am just been fired going to dl some porn on work computer then going home to watch episodes of Bosom Buddies maybe cry a little
So, when I finally did go to the website, I sought out the only persons that I thought made sense to check-in on: celebrities. And so, over the course of the next few weeks, The Kids…will be sharing the transcripts of celebrity Twitter posts/conversations.
Our first celeb-Twit? Angelina Jolie.
