Good Morning America!

A Twitter Twit

Scrolling down my Twitter page I found this interesting blog post by bbrian017 at BlogEngage.

His post questions whether or not he's using twitter in the correct context.

From a non-geek and non-business owner perspective, I believe he's using Twitter just fine.

What I've seen on Twitter, just as I've seen on FaceBook, is that people use these two popular social media networks for various reasons.

  1. Marketing their online businesses.
  2. Marketing their local businesses.
  3. Marketing their blogs.
  4. Marketing their websites.
  5. Twittering just to be tweeting.
  6. Making friends or business networking
Athletes twitter -- Shaq, the Williams sisters, many Professional sports teams [Go CAVS]  have a designated tweet twitterer.

Visiting a blog post by Israeli Mom -- 11 Things Twitter is Good For, I found one of many interesting reasons she uses Twitter.  She uses twitter for importing or finding products cheaper elsewhere than they are in her home country. Frankly, this idea never occurred to me.

Mainly, various entrepreneurs use Twitter to gain customer interest -- Verizon uses twitter to let customers know of new offers or to gain new customers, Starbucks posts new offers and participates in threaded discussions, JetBlue offers Twitter-based customer service as does ComCast the list goes on.  

And, yes, those of us who don't own businesses or have no specialized knowledge in any one thing in particular, but a severe case of bloggorhea, use Twitter to gain blog readership.

I use Twitter to notify the cyberworld of a new post on one of my many blogs. Twitter also comes in handy for different news venues. I've used many of the tweets [like bbrian017] for ideas on blog posts.

My personal thoughts on Twitter vs. FaceBook, twitter is much easier, less complicated and doesn't have the bugs FaceBook has. FaceBook tends to wear on my nerves with all its glitches [that's another post].

Release Tiger's Tail!

The Paparazzi are nothing but a bunch of bottom feeding muck rakers, they're the one issue that gives freedom of speech a black eye. It makes one wonder how much they get paid for stirring up muck and mire.

Personally, I still blame them for the death of Princess Diana. If these Carpparazzi weren't hounding her, she'd still be alive. 

Alright all ready, Tiger Woods and his wife have issues, so what! Show me a marriage that doesn't.

Instinct tells me that Mrs. Woods wasn't originally going to use that golf club to get Tiger out of the back of his car. Instinct tells me that she found out about "girlfriend" and was going to use it as a exclamation point -- I know I would have.

These media mongrels act as if Tiger Woods is the first man on the planet that has cheated on his wife -- he isn't nor will he be the last,  bottom line, it's none of anyone's business.

Tiger didn't have to apologize  to his fans but he did. He knows that his morality isn't or shouldn't be public business.

Tiger Woods doesn't steal billions of investors money. He doesn't crawl into bed with different governmental lobbyists. He hits a little white ball with a long skinny stick for a living and wins millions.

These high profile [non political] men who can't control their zipper, are no different than the average, invisible Joe who can't keep his second brain to himself. The bottom line, these men and their private shenanigans are none of the public's business, they are the problem of their wives and no one else.

If these athlete wives are smart they'll take that bull by the wandering horn and scare him stupid -- does Lorena Bobbitt ring a bell. 

Athletes are not politicians. No Athlete has claimed to speak for the people. No Athlete makes policies, or drafts constitutional changes that will affect our country. They are high priced [over-paid] performers, that's it.

Go ahead, feel sorry for his wife or maybe not, you don't know what she's been into, but give this story a rest.

I'm sure Tiger will do a Kobe Bryant and surprise his wife with a bright, glittering four million dollar bobble -- rest assured none of the paparazzi or us invisible people will get one.
