I'm not on Facebook, I never did Myspace, Instagram might as well be a blood pressure medication for all I know about it, I have no interest in Pinterest and The Cloud is something that rains on me when I take the dog out...
I'm not down with the Social Media is my point.
But I do go on Twitter every once in a while.
Initially it was principally to debunk Boggers' frequent and troublesome attempts to appear "ITK".
I took "ITK" to mean "I've read on Twitter".
(Alan Nixon once called me a "fud" (whatever that means) but didn't block me because I then made him piss himself with my response to his comment and we became sort of cyber-friends.)
I keep getting emails from Twitter telling me that someone has either liked or replied to one of my tweets.
And it's important at this point to say that I never randomly tweet my thoughts, rather I generally only respond to comments from others.
So I read my email and think "Great! I've added to the discussion in my small way and someone likes what I've said. Fab! Let's see what they've said and how it fits with the general discussion."
But more often than not, when I click on the link, all I get is my comment and their reply.
No context, no transcription of the full discussion....nowt.
Am I doing something wrong?
Or is that how it works?
That orange-faced idiot in America appears to have mastered Twitter but I'm struggling.
I know he's "like a smart person" and his (self-proclaimed) IQ is 156 (Google it) but I'm pretty sure that even though I'm not as clever as him, I should be able to grasp the rudiments of it.
And that bothers me.....bigly....in a yuge way, folks.
