TWITTER AIN'T NOTHING BUT A DRIVE-BY. Follow you?! You gotsta be kidding!


Get Read-Get Set-Go. Now STOP!




I mean, what the hell is Twitter? I know some bloggers have a hookup with Twitter, and that's cool, but give me a freakin break. Is it just me, or do real bloggers deplore Twitter. They should call it Jitter because any ol'crackhead could say "Hi, whatcha doing, catch ya later". I mean, WTH is going on?
Really, isn't that system like a drive-by shooting.... BANG BANG, you're dead -see you later. If a clown calls me on the phone and says, "Whats up man, am going to the movies tonight"..... and then hangs up, I am done with his ass. I mean, really, they could have missed me with that one. I mean, real bloggers gotta let it go. They have to stretch out. Who wants to read twitter, I mean, a "drive-bye" post - huh?

But I understand. See, when I drop by some blogs, I notice certain individuals... wait, am not talking about anybody, am just saying. I 've notice some individuals do drive-by comments on a regular basis. Maybe there's some kind of points program. You know, like those frequent flyer miles. Now I ain't talking about nobody, but I could swear some people copy and paste their comments. Come on, you've seen them... "Good post pal, keep up the good work, am gone".... "Good post Sista, keep up the good work" ...... "Good post Ralph, keep up the good work".... "you're the best, Shirley" .... "you're the best, Shanika" .... You're the best Kunta Kente' ".

I thought there could only be one "Best".


Don't get me wrong, I love a good pat on the back, but there's little shame in the game of real bloggers. You know it! They will let in go in their house and your house. See, personally, I like that. Let me know what's really on your mind. Don't lie to me softly. If I jack a post, let me know. I've been known to write a post -or 2- that didn't make sense to anybody, including myself. A Real bloggers will write a page or two... right up in your house. I like it - like that.
But isn't Twitter akin to somebody knocking on your door, and then punching you in the face. Then, they're off to punch another idiot. I mean, who drops by your house and says 10 words and then leaves? What's that mess about? Don't get me wrong, on some occasions a short reply is just what the doctor ordered, but am just saying......

For real, is there a rewards program for short bursts of "hello, am gone"? Really, I need to know because I can use a plastic key chain. Maybe it's just this new generation of Xboxers and BET-ers? Maybe I should blame it on Rap music - that's it...... "BOOM BOOM BOOM.... grab my nuts..... am gone"! WTH?

To tell the truth, I am really pissed off because I should have invented that mess. I mean, the advertisement slogan wouldn't have to be much..... "TWITTER! Come on by. You don't have to say a goddam thang and you can't stay long - just drive-by"

Twitter is like pissing in the river. A whole lot of swinging pricks could let their streams roll down the bank, and not make a dent in the river. Cuz that steam is going to stop in about 20 seconds. I mean, come on, WTH is Twitter?

Jitter Bug-Twitter Bug-Tweety Bird, what kind of people tweet? Granted, Twitter seems to be a great attachment to a blog. Bloggers use them as a portal to their blog. But I am talking about them pimp or die tweet sweets. Now I ain't talking about nobody, but is strictly tweet for dead heads? Maybe it's for people that watch porn flicks by themselves?

I don't know, am just asking. I mean, who watches porn flicks for the sound?? I mean, ain't that just like Twitterettes..... they ain't sayin a goddam thang? Real bloggers need the whole pool. And, they prefer the deep end.



I know.... I know, bloggers are not always dropping a wealth of information, but at least they are saying it loud..... like they are fat and proud. You show me a trench coat wearing flasher and I'll show you a Tweet Sweet. Of course I am kidding about them being sweet, but I'd bet most of them can be found trolling for underage girls....."hello, my name is Johnny, how old are you - tweeeeeet?"

If you ever see me stop blogging and my name appears in a tweet, call the loony wagon because I 've lost my F**kin' mind.

bruhahahaha.... this is funny... and I totally agree. I've been on twitter for 6 months now and I still call people and say ''hey pls tell me where to click, I need to feel this thing like others are feeling it.''And when they tell me ''thats all''...I'm like 'so what the fcuk is all the hype for'? I mean I cant even write a note there...so whats the essence.Its lame... Facebook beats it one thousand times.Or maybe one day I'll learn the secret of enjoying Tweeter

You old cantankerous muthafucka!YEAH I SAID IT!LOLNah man, but for real for real. You got Twitter all wrong "Old School". Yes there are some people with the drive bye tweets, but that's on all social network sites. Believe it or not, I have some great conversations and debates on Twitter. Actually, for many like myself, it has become a source to jumpstart the creative juices when it comes to writing. In short, it has further shrunken the world and exposes you to what's going on all around you that you may not notice.Now that's just how it works for me. But for most bloggers or anyone with a marketing accumen it has become one of the best tools there is for product promotion.Some of my best work start as tweets. But if you ever spent any time in the chatrooms on the internet back in the early day. You damn sure could and would appreciate Twitter. Hey, and I'll be honest: Twitter compensates for the need for social human interaction.

RiPPa said...
BTW: It would be an honor to host you as a guest with a post on my page. Shoot me an email.


CareyCarey said...
F**k you Big RiPPa.... BYE! Tweeeeet!

CareyCarey said...
Nawl man *lol*, I suppose the problem is in my Ol'skool ass. But as you know, I generally don't talk about things I do not know a little something about. On this occasion, I was just running my mouth and telling a few jokes. But some people miss the humor.
Well, it was how I felt, but that don't make it right.But noooooo, you had to come up in here and blast me in my own house *lol*. But like I said in my post.... I like that shit! but you know what man, I was thinking about you when I was writing that post because I know you use Twitter. To some degree, that's why I wrote the "out clauses" -For real! Although I don't Twitter, I know it can be an effective tool. But don't tell nobody I said that. I don't want to spoil my image of being an "old cantankerous muthafucka!"*lol*I guess it goes back to the old saying "ya can't teach an old dog new trick". I shake when I get next to an Xbox, but I'll kill a pin-ball machine.
Hey man, I don't know your e-mail address?


RiPPa said...
iiight ol'skool...go to my page. look on my sidebar for the section that says "get sum madness". in that section there's a button that says "contact". click that link to send me an email.you know, that way i don't have to put my shit out here on your page so people can send me more hate mail.

CareyCarey said...
Yep, gotcha.I was glad you said your e-mail address was at your blog, because if it was at your Twitter account..... I wasn't comin'. Tweeeeeeeeeeeet.
Btw, YOU? Hate mail, you're kidding me!? Why do people get all upset when they see a fat black racist *lol*.

LoudPen said...
Carey, I agree with Rippa. You sound old as hell. Like so old. And so ignorant. I love ya, but, come on...get it together. Twitter is amazing. It allows you to speak your mind, conversate with others, and build your network. And I'm sorry, but, that's what I'm all about. I like speaking about random topics and my life at all times, and Twitter has allowed me to do that. Also, I have met other writers, bloggers, web designers, graphic designers...all on Twitter. I have been able to have some of my best political discussions via Twitter and it feels great. It's nice to know that someone is always out there listening & ready to interact. And also, Twitter isn't simply answering the question: What are you doing? It's your choice to tweet or not tweet what you wish. I follow ppl. who tweet nothing but inspirational quotes, or others who tweet to announce parties/events, or others who tweet financial advice. So all I'm saying is, stop sitting around complaining like an old man & sign up for an account. The Pen Has Spoken.

CareyCarey said...
Hello my nappy yappy from NY.Hold up, Looooong Pen, you don't know me like that..... Tweet this:"Ten toes up and ten toes down/2 naked booties going round and round/skin touching skin/ going in and out/ f**k you Long Pen/ shut your fat mouth.... TWEEEEEEEEET" LOL
Okay er'body, that's a joke.... in case you didn't know. the long Pen and I are real cool. Otherwise I wouldn't let her come up in here and put me on blast like Big RiPPa did. Yeah, what's up with that? I guess I'll put that in the "real love" box :-)But Ms. Pen, why you hittin' me with a garbage can. You know, saying a brotha is all ignant and old? *lol*
Didn't Big RiPPa tell you I was waving the white flag. yet I must admit, I did ask for full expression - didn't I. I hope you guys haven't created a Monkey see, Monkey do situation. I hope somebody saw it my way. But if they didn't, I have put on my blast jacket.Btw Ms. Long Pen, you can forget about me ever being yo' Sugardaddy,you're mean. TWEEEEEEEEEEEEEET. LOL

Carey the revolution will not be televised...It will be tweeted and put on Face book...So don't get left behind...I refuse to be left behind.

RiPPa said...
@jjbrock: C'mon now Anne. Carey just found out about the Emancipation Proclamation last Tuesday. Give the brother a little time. He'll be alright. lol

CareyCarey said...
WHAT?! We Free?! Dang, I coulda had me a V-8..... or a white woman.Aye too Marcus Junius Brutus?... I mean Ann. You people are killing me. Where are all my real friends?*LOL*The following could only come from an evil mind..... "Carey the revolution will not be televised"I have to admit that's a brilliant "catch" but you 3 blind mice should move around before someone else bites off your cheese. TWEEEEEEEET!That boat is likely to tip over if one more person comes in here with another sucker punch.I know I can't be the only person that has seen the brainwashing affects of The Tweet Beat?!Where are all the beautiful people?

Solomon said...
I'm with Carey, where are all the beautiful people? *lol* @ Carey, looks like me and you are the only two on this planet that ain't hooked up on Twitter. *lol* @ bloggers doing a drive-bye post! What about me, I'm still mthe masked man. {smiles}And what about those that do the cut n paste, they don't have a mind of their own or what? LMAO! Being ol'skool is still cool Carey, I don't care what all these other bloggers say. Keep doin' what youy do bro, and it's gonna happen. You'll realize what the meaning of life is! *smiles*

LoudPen said...
Carey, don't even play me like that! You were asking for it & you know it. You said us bloggers have to call each other out sooo....Anywho, I loves ya Carey, but, I loves Twitter too and you need to get put on. Thank goodness you've surrendered. Don't mess with the powers that be. And you gotta be my sugardaddy! Remember, I can be just as sweet as I am mean. And BTW, you're not old...you are numerically abundant which is why you sometimes get set in your ways.

FreeMan said...
You know I'm with you on the twitter angle. I use it primarily as a notification service but besides that it's text messaging to the world. I had to get talked into it by one of the cats who read my blog who told me I should embrace it. Real talk it's the dumbest ish created since the comfort wipe!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crfGXmxJ1vMI had those drive by bloggers too. The game is they get more links to their website and they appear higher on the google search engine. I call it NERD publicity!Real talk you have to understand what age we are in. People just love NEW, it doesn't matter what the hell it is as long as it's new. So if they came up with Iphone App to translate your voice into a Irish guy then the same Technology Nerds would make up a stupid ass name about that too.You aren't out of touch you just see that the ish is useless! It's like paying 5K for granite countertops and saying that's a deal breaker on a new house! We have a lot of dumbass people with degrees circle banging each other while entertaining over there 6 burner stove!

LoudPen said...
Freeman, if you didn't want to sign up for Twitter, why did you? And yes, Bloggers do promote posts via Twitter, I'm one of them. I personally do so because it's hard to drive traffic to your site & Twitter is a free way to do so. However, I do think that you need to give Twitter more time. I mean it's more than promoting posts & drive by blogging. All it is interaction & conversation...which is what you do with a blog so Twitter is a shorter version of that. So I don't understand why that's a bad thing?! Okay, now that I've outsed myself as a Twitterholic, I'm not coming back to this post. Well...maybe...okay...probably.

RiPPa said...
"Freeman, if you didn't want to sign up for Twitter, why did you?"ANSWER: Because he's a hypocrite. But hey, he's a "business building money making" type of guy, right? Seems to me that anyone with some form of business acumen about them would be quite interested in the marketing potential that Twitter provides. Doesn't make sense, right?

FreeMan said...
@Loud-Pen - Thank you for being civil in your response to me. After a friend pushed me I saw it as a way to announce the blog and get some followers that I probably wouldn't reach by word of mouth. I can wait to see what it actually turns into because in it's current form twitter has limited use for me. I just use it more as an announcement.@Carey - LOL man I respect your site!


CareyCarey said...
I KNEW IT!!!! And since I saw Ms. jjbrock (a nice Christian woman) riding with Big RiPPa, I am simply going to say... I FREAKIN' KNEW IT!MY MAN FREEMAN. Boy, I was drowning out here and you came to my rescue. Man, you killed that explanation. i didn't have the cahoonas to say what you did, but man, you brought it home.Now I ain't trying to start nothing but on a side note, back in my mind, I knew if RiPPa was on one side of the fence, you might be on the other. I am by no means suggesting your opinion was based on anything he said, because I know you stand on your word but I had a feeling this would happen. But more importantly, it was my belief that I felt I wasn't standing on porous ground. I mean, I knew my position had some merit.Others may disagree, and the saga may continue but.....
@ Solomon, come on man, there's no suckin' up in blog land. LOLUntil you remove that mask, am gonna stay in your ass, because I feel like you are about to rob me :-).
@ Long Pen, As Barry White said, "your sweetness is my weakness". Girl, I love love love feedback, and my joke shouldn't have been taken personally. I would walk through a lions den wearing a pork chop sandwich to get you a drink of water. When I think about it, you probably knew that, and was giving me a little poke. I am so glad you read the whole post. It's nice that you caught the part about "full & free expression". Well Freeman noticed it too, and although I hate to say it, so did Solomon. LOL


CareyCarey said...
OH NO! I went away for a moment and 2 of my best blogging friends have met at the bar.

FreeMan said...
@Carey - C'mon I wasn't going against Rippa as I was just speaking for myself. I'm trying to respect the post and your site so when he makes his comment I'm not looking for anything. On my old blog I wrote that the Nerds have taken over and this is another one of their babies. Text messaging online and gathering friends. I mean the whole Nerd Revolution is about getting PSUEDO friends all over the world to see that you ate a great chocolate cake. It's the ultimate brain diversion to read what people say every 3 minutes so you won't concentrate on anything real.I don't mean to offend anyone as this is just my opinion. Besides another form of personal BS celebrity it's just 140 characters of garbage.

CareyCarey said...
No Freeman, my comment had nothing to do with your position. although I think I said that, I probably didn't properly express myself. While I was addrssing/writing your first post, along with some of the others, all the other posts hit the board at the same time. It appears as if I was addressing the last few post but I was not. When I said "I had a feeling this would happen, I simply meant I knew your take on drive-byes, because we had talk about in previous discussion. I remember (when I first started blogging) you voiced some concerns about people blogging for all the wrong reasons.Nawl man, remove that from you mind. I know you're a stand-up guy. And that you respect the house. We alright.My "I KNEW IT" was an an expression of joy that somebody agreed with me. It just fell on the board at the wrong place and at the wrong time. It had nothing to do with anything else.My apology for the confusion.Where is Big RiPPa? He got me up in here apologizing and shit.LoL

LoudPen said...
@Freeman, Your welcome. I always try to be civil especially because we don't each other like that & I didn't want you to think I was on that other ish. Anywho, I respect your opinion of Twitter & it takes a minute to find what your Tweet niche will be. I think you should stay with it a little longer & if you still hate it, then, give it up.@Carey, you know I take things to heart, it is my best/worst quality. So, I'll keep in mind that you just like to tease me & ruffle my feathers. Anywho, glad I'm still in the running for the Ms. Carey title.


CareyCarey said...
Yeah Long Pen, that's what I do....ruffle a few feathers. This medium is hard on me. The voice can project many emotions that the written word can not express. A seven word sentence can be expressed seven different ways through the spoken word. Especially if a facial expression is riding shotgun. Personal cadence and breaks are missing with the written word. If a person is smiling and laughing while saying sometime, it's obvious they are in a moment of joy. Yet if a person can't see me smiling and laughing so hard that I am farting on myself, it's hard to convey those emotions. For instance, what am I doing right now. Are my eyes wide open with a look of dismay. Is my head turned away from you, giving you the impression that I am not paying you any attention. If I say "right", am I saying right like I agree, or "right", like get the hell out of here. Or is it a questioning "right" like I am trying to think while you are giving me instrutions. this medium is hard on me because I miss the use of my hands, my eyes, my head, my voice, and the abilty to play off the emotions of the individual or persons I am addressing.So Ms. Long Pen, we are cool. although I am not a cusser (written word I do) if I say "F" you with a smile on my face, I don't mean it like F**k you and the horse you rode in on.Okay, what am I doing right now? Well, am smiling. Am not laughing am just smiling.In short, I am not a writer, I am a speaker. If you ever want to hear one of my speeches, let me know.

FreeMan said...
Put up the speeches bruh! I got the podcast going so you can hear my emotions in the podcast. Oh yeah don't sweat offending me or me misinterpreting anything. I know even if you direct something toward me it's to teach not to scold. I have a healthy ego but I can see the bigger picture!


Kit (Keep It Trill) said...
Damn that was a funny post! Laughed from beginning to end b/c it's so true! Hell, I just blogrolled ya azz, you good. Hugs to Rippa and your guest post b/c that's were I found out about you

You are probably right. I mean, several other people agree with you. In fact, I think I'll add their comments to the post... and yours too. I am glad you were not too CerebrallyBusy to stop by.
