At the start of this year in January I joined Twitter. Since then the learning curve has been steep. To begin with one has to find intelligent or insightful things to say. Not as easy as it sounds since one also has to do it in under 140 characters, including spaces! And at my age quick wit can be a challenge.
One must learn to say profound things in a brevity of words. Thankfully I still seem to have the knack.
I have also found that because of my disability, my hands are unreliable I frequently hit two or three keys at once, spasm and hit a key repeatedly, or miss keys all together, spell check is a blessing and I must limit my postings. But I try my best, though now and then something gets by me. I have learned perfection is good but not always easily attained. I usually post first thing in the morning when fatigue has yet to take me and my coordination is as good as it will get! I guess I still live by the adage of the early bird!
Getting logged in to the site is easy as long as I remember my password. Then I have to get my thoughts together and think of something to say. Sometimes long minutes pass and my mind remains empty, not a good feeling!
Every since very young I have had a talent with poetry, Haiku being my strength, so I always try to include that. Then I try to say something about writing, another life long pursuit.
At times local events inspire what I post.
Joining Twitter is easy simply go to www.twitter.com and follow the prompts to join.
It has taken me all these months to reach 200 followers, and I thank each and every one of them for being interested in what I have to say.
Is it worth the efforts you ask? I think so. So for those of you who have been hesitating about joining or going on Twitter, no worries, its easy and fun!
