My last words on #the2300
First and foremost, if you’re a member of #the2300, this is not an attack on you personally (well, maybe 3 of you, but none that I follow or that follows me.) This is just my opinion of the group as a concept.
Twitter is my social group. As sad as that may sound, it’s the truth. Because of my work schedule (12-16 hrs a day, 14 days in a row,) I don’t get a lot of time for socializing & spending time with friends watching a game or just bullshitting about whatever topic comes up anymore, so I turned to twitter. I’m blessed with a job that allows me a lot of free time to access it throughout the day. My one OCD characteristic requires I read every tweet in my timeline, no matter how late it is or how badly I need sleep.
Twitter is where I go to share something I found humorous, whether it’s a video, a picture, or just something that popped in my head. It’s also where I go to express my frustration at life or at work or with a date who claims Godsmack saved her life.
Like I said, twitter is my social life, I’ve selected about 300 people whose words & thoughts I enjoy reading, it’s my own little club where I get to select the content. That’s why I don’t get #the2300 anymore.
I don’t need a social club within my social club. I don’t want to have to go to a separate site. I don’t wanna repeat the same old tired Ticket bits to (mostly) spare local celebs every night of the week. I don’t want to be told 100 times a day how great our club is and how great the guy who started it is. I don’t want to have to worry about one day maybe being tweeter of the week. I don’t want to read people desperately begging celebs over and over for a “twitterview.” I don’t want to have to clean up the mess in my pants when someone calls in to a postgame show and mentions our club’s name.
So I don’t.
I’m still able to talk to who I want and enjoy what people have to say throughout the day without a hashtag.
So I do.
