Twitter is amazing. I know a lot of people complain that it’s now dominated by commercial companies wanting to make money but it’s still a real space for real people to make an enduring connection. I love my Twitter friends.
OMG my people!
How much would you charge to teach me how to Twitter? I want what you’ve got going on there.
Roseanne Barr snapped at me once on Twitter. And Jenna Elfman told me she liked my bio. This could never happen on Facebook.
Being in your twitter orbit is never boring, Jenny.
If you ask me, those clowns are crazy; they’ll never find a better home.
Some people feel normal until they go to Twitter. Others feel normal because they’re on Twitter.
You’re the right kind of people.
Twitter is the best. Lucy Lawless talks to me on twitter every couple months. I have no idea why.
Long day…read comment 5 as “obit” not “orbit”. Had mild heart attack. Am fine.
LOL. Maureen Johnson is awesome, too – her books are great!
Twitter is like Tahiti…a magical place.
I don’t tweet much but I do enjoy a good twittersphere every now & then.
Ahhhh, so that’s the trick to keeping the clowns at bay. Feed them something other than ropes. Doll brains, perhaps? What else do clowns eat? I wouldn’t know because I don’t let any of them ANYWHERE NEAR ME!!!
follows Jenny on Twitter
Happy Almost Normal Day!
clowns? sticks fingers in ears and says Nah Nah Nah Nah! I can’t hear you!
Twitter is one of the few places where you can be absolutely outraged and hysterical with laughter all within the space of a few seconds. Sometimes both at the same time.
I got a new dictionary from the American Heritage Dictionary people because they liked my word usage on twitter. And, for no reason at all, Wil Wheaton blocked me for a short time. On Facebook, I would never have known I was being snubbed.
I need to follow better people on Twitter. And try to be better at it.
Don’t hate on me, but I don’t love Twitter. I’m too wordy to tweet, twit, twat… LOL!
And now that clowns have been mentioned, I probably won’t sleep again tonight. But yes, Twitter is awesome. Too bad I don’t have many followers. But that can be a good thing sometimes…?
So, Jenny, I have a creepy clown doll to send you. Are you saying you don’t want it?
I asked the babysitter. Love, she said. Only love your twitter.
I haven’t been on Twitter in forever. I guess I need to go back on.
I really need to find out how twitter works.
Yep, it’s why I love Twitter too😍
What else would you give them to eat? Except for small children?
I know that face! I’ve seen it in the mirror.
What is this “Normal” you speak of????
There’s a part of me that wants context, but the other part is content to watch the crazy unfold 🙂
I like twitter, but it is generally very time consuming.
Facebook is where you go for friends, twitter is where you go when you want to see how your friends really are.
Twitter is fun. The Bloggess Tribe is definitely better at it than most.
Maureen Johnson is the name of one of the main characters in Rent. I had no idea she was on Twitter.
And why I love you…cause you always find stuff for us to LOL at..
I’m not lying Jenny when I say your the only reason I have twitter and the only reason I got an Instagram. True story
I had to leave twitter; I kept getting too many marriage proposals. (Hey, it could happen. Yes, it could too!…Oh, okay; I got ONE proposal, all right?! Sheeze.)
This is the best ❤️
Rope to tie up clowns? Ppfftt, amateurs. For clowns we only use chain. It is known.
I adore Maureen Johnson almost as much as I adore you!
Maureen is an OUTSTANDING Twitter follow if y’all aren’t following her yet!
I love Twitter, too. I love that I found you there (not that you were missing, or anything, or, um.). I love that you’ve found us, your tribe, there, and that we’ve found each other there. Also, I love that I’m no longer missing, I guess.
Ennyhoo. Thanks for getting closer to your “normal” and letting us know, and also for letting us know when life feels shit for you, like your xanax post from what, yesterday? Please stick with us, for as long as you can. We need you, both in times of loving Twitter and in times of feeling total shit.
I have to admit I’ve never heard of Maureen Johnson (gasp!) and had to go look her up…. I now have multiple new books on my wishlist, lol. I’m glad you post the best of your Twitter convos here because I just can’t do Twitter… I have an account but haven’t logged on in at least a year.
You retweeted my photo once! Between that and George Takei doing the same, my social media bucket list has been filled. ☺️
Twitter is a great equalizer, and some barriers drop. I once tweeted a cute image of my daughter reading one of her favorite author’s books in costume, and that author retreated it. There was great joy in Kidville.
And this is why I keep coming back here. And back to Twitter. These are my people.
And I’m one of the clowns.
(Not posting a pic of myself as a clown out of respect for those with coulrophobia.)
Anyone else humming, “Send in the Clowns”
I may never forgive you for that one JL.
I am not active on twitter but I watch funny videos and Retweet them,
and I have one blogs where I can laugh as much as I can.
