Default Twitter

Does anyone use twitter?

Believe it or not...we are very shy to expressing ourselves anywhere, even on here at first that then comes and go...

But self expression as seperated parts would make us look weird, so we refrain from it...and besides, who wants to hear what we got to say....so we donít use it.

Facebook is just a news or entertainment media with zero postings and basically no friends.

Writing is a direct link to the inside world and many people scratch their heads when they read what is expressed through our writings because of all the changing ideas, opinions, and personalities- so we donít express much.

But wondering about using twitter and do you?

I do use Twitter, AlwaysChanging2. It's not bad, but like all social media it can become addictive and dangerous. There's a lot of drama, like in most other places. If you want to try it, definitely go for it! Just be careful. What is it about Twitter that attracts you specifically? I understand your fear of expressing yourself and being judged. If you want to express yourself, perhaps you could start journaling, if you haven't already. Or perhaps you could start a blog if you want to share it with other people. What do you think? Whathever you decide, remember that we're here for you. You know we won't judge you here. Wish you good luck! Let us know how it goes. Sending many hugs to you

It seems like everyone uses it, and was just wondering if it is a good way of receiving good information or just a bunch of personal opinions.

Never tried it because we arenít exactly a very expressive system...we seldom put pen to paper.

What information exactly, AlwaysChanging2? I do feel like there are many opinions on there. But there's some good stuff as well. I think it's a mixed bag... the only way to know for sure whether it'd be good for you is to give it a try, I suppose. If you don't like it, you can always drop it later. I believe you can delete your account as well. I'm so sorry, I wish I've had more advice to give to you. Wish you good luck! Let us know how it goes. Sending many hugs to you

I don't use it. I stay away from social networks entirely

on top of that I think 180 characters are a bit limiting. good for them for increasing the amount, but I don't think it's really for me.

yes I have a twitter account, in fact I have 2. one is a work related account and the other my own personal account. I keep the two unrelated, the work related one is of course is named for the job and my personal one is a pseudomyn so that the two dont accidentally get connected and my personal life can remain my personal life and my work life can remain my work life.

facebook yes and again more than one account, unlinked in any way other than notifying facebook why I have more than one account.

my journaling is not done online. once its put out there its out there to stay even if you delete it, many websites if their site goes under or sold what you put on them becomes open to all or the property of the new site owners. (read those terms of use, privacy, and what we collect and share pages carefully ) I prefer old school for my journaling, pen and paper or on my own personal computer, never internet
