I’ve only been on Twitter for about nine months. (Follow me at ValerieBGibbs !) Honestly, I started tweeting because it was a required part of my “job” as a travel reviewer to live tweet from the locations I was reviewing. I’m slowly warming up to the whole thing. (OK, I might be just a little addicted to long, complicated hashtags…they make me happy.) For someone like me, who adores–ne, cherishes–words (if you don’t believe me, check out this post, in which I use 1048 words to talk about coffee–yes, I did a word count), encapsulating life events into 140 characters is difficult. Laborious, even. Next to impossible. (And now I have the soundtrack from Rodger’s & Hammerstein’s Cinderella playing in my head. Does that give you an idea of what it’s like to be me?)
Just for fun, I did a review of sorts, scanning through all my tweets since September. (BTW, at the writing of this post, I had exactly 387 tweets.) I thought I’d share a few of my favorites–funny, clever, odd, poignant–from oldest to newer. A snapshot of my life, if you will, in 140 characters or less.
Presley finally pulled the tooth that has been dangling for days. Had video but decided it was too graphic to post.
