A to Z Challenge: T is for TWITTER

I wrote this comment recently on Catdownunder’s blog when she wrote about the joys of Twitter:

When you suffer from social anxiety, Twitter gives you an opportunity to feel as competent as the people you’re chatting to. Well, almost.

Almost, because I still worry that what I write doesn’t really express what I want to say. Or that what I write could be deemed rude or weird or something else I don’t intend. Or that the person I’m chatting with doesn’t really want to chat with me. So I often take too long to reply.

But yes, I like Twitter, and Facebook, and emails, and blog comments. I like the interaction that I miss or struggle with in the real world.

and I am so far away from everyone I know and like that it is sometimes the only way to make contact. Working from home makes it very hard to interact with other people – Twitter is the office banter that I do not otherwise get…and I love it when you comment on my blog!
