Twitter Insecurities

So lately, with the whole shredheads thing, I've started to Twitter. Yeah, I'm way late to the game. But it's pretty addictive, and it makes me feel like I have more of a life than I really do. I mean, where else can I go to feel like I have lots of friends when, in reality, they don't have a clue who I am or if I'm there? *laugh*

One thing I've noticed, though...I feel slighted when I follow someone and they don't follow me back! Of course I know that some of the more popular people I follow have hundreds or thousands of followers, and that following every one of them would be impractical at best. Plus, they really have no idea who I am, and let's be honest - my tweets aren't exactly bursting with excitement!

But it still makes me feel like I'm back in high school, always on the edge of the popular crowd - listening in, feeling like I'm part of the group, but then not told where the party is that weekend. *sigh* Insecurity sucks!

Seriously! I just joined Twitter because of the shredheads and it is still a bit of a mystery to me. Between Twitter and Facebook, it's just like high school all over again...and it's been almost 20 years since I left it!
