Selective Tweeting

Back in July of this year, I did this big blog post about Twitter and how I didn't have time and how it didn't make sense to me and well, you can re-read the post if you'd like.  You know, in case you want to say I told you so?


So here's what happened . . . November 14th I was at the RSC in Carson, CA hovering over the Tim Holtz demo table.  He mentioned something about Twitter and tweeting and how he does it and so on.  I pretty much tuned him out and dismissed the whole thing, because if you remember, I don't have TIME to tweet anybody.  Well, I missed out on some really cool free stuff  (isn't it ALL cool?!)  that mr. holtz gave away!  urrrrrrgh, that daggone Genevieve rubbing it in my face!


Fast forward to Mario . . . Mario did this "sneak" post on Tim's blog while Tim was busy designing the upcoming tags, telling everybody that he's (Mario) going to be giving away some free stuff on Twitter.  Damn, damn, DAMN! (said the way Florida Evans would have said it on  "Good Times")

Cut to the chase:  I'm on Twitter now.  Yep, I am.  I'm not following many people, but I am DEFINITELY following Mario and Tim and a few other select folks.

The Win!  Well, already this tweeting thing has paid off for me.  Last night I won a package of  Seasonal Grungeboard from Mario.  Yep, and he's mailing it off to me today, so now I can make Tim's first 12-days of Christmas tag.  See the snowman on the sheet in the upper left-hand corner?  Uh huh . . . that's the snowman he used.


 In Closing:  So yes, I will be tweeting . . . if only tweeting selectively *smiles*

Brrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaattttttt! We even wrote the same comment! It was in the cosmos, and Mario picked yours over mine! I'll let it slide, THIS TIME!

So, uh, you didn't respond to my tweet. You're gonna SHARE, right?!

Hahaha...I could have written this post! You should have heard my recent rant about Twitter being the most ridiculous and narcissistic creation on earth. Mario drew me to the dark side too!
Only unlike you, I have nothing to show for it...yet....other than feeling like I've sold out or something.
Well, at one time I thought that people with cell phones were just very self-important. So what the hell do I know?

Ah yes, this has happened to me far too many times and I can totally relate. I tend to just try and keep my nay saying opinions to myself these days or they inevitably come back to haunt me. ;-)
On the up side, congratulations on your win, that's wonderful!!

Congrats on the win! I, too, am a Twitter-er, but I rarely remember to check in, since I do it almost exclusively through my computer. Oh, well... I have enough distractions. *lol*
"Paris to the Moon" looks WAY fun!
