You have the big package of 250 channels plus HBO and Showtime, and you’re lucky if you have time to watch a couple hours of TV a day. You have maybe 12 favorite channels you actually watch out of the 250 that you purchased. That’s what Twitter is like. A lot of voices talking, but you only listen to a select few.

Check me out on Twitter @vdebolt to see if you want to listen to my voice. And leave your Twitter name in the comments if you’re out there talking yourself.

  1. A couple of days ago, I learned a new word that’s associated with Twitter. The new word inducted into the dictionary for 2014 is Tweeps, and it refers to the actual users posting comments on Twitter. I also read an interesting fact stating that most millenials are Tweeps, so Tweepers, keep Tweetting!

  2. This dates from an era before the humans took over twittering from us” feathered friends” as they so derogatorily call us. Earlier, we chirped, hooted, cawed, and twittered(if you please) to our hearts’ content. Paeans, ballads, and tomes were filled on our mating calls among other things.The other day, some birds were going berserk after a late monsoon shower. I could tell they were excited at the prospect of feasting on earthworms emerging from their hiding places. Not to mention the respite from the tropical sun.But to the uninitiated ear, they were just “twittering”
