Are you one of those guys that rolls their eyes or changes your browser when you see or hear the mention of Oprah, that ridiculously rich media mogul who speaks about her Spirit and Self? (Stop gagging, boys)
Well, you’ve probably heard that Oprah has joined Twitter, that microblogging sensation, unless you’ve been living under a rock. Besides getting followers at a furious pace, she was welcomed to Twitter by no other than Ashton Kutcher, the first Twitter user to hit 1 million followers. (Another person that you guys either love or hate)
I’ve found that most guys I’ve talked to about Twitter either think its the stupidest thing ever or that its genius.
Conversation with Guy Who Thinks Twitter is the Stupidest Thing Ever
ME: Are you on Twitter?
Guy #1: What the hell is the point of that stupid site? Why the hell would I want to know what you’re eating right now or if you think that you have a crush on Ryan Seacrest? Isn’t he gay by the way?
ME: Um. No, the point is to be connected to be a bunch of people at all times. And no, Ryan Seacrest is not gay. He’s just metrosexual so he’s always clean-shaven and gets his nails done.
Conversation with Guy Who Thinks Twitter is Genius
ME: I haven’t updated my Twitter in forever.
Guy #2: What’s forever? A few hours? Minutes?
ME: No, I haven’t been on there in a week.
Guy #2: WHAT?!! It’s the best site ever! You can get constant feed on breaking news, get updates on your friends and you can follow all these celebs. I’m into Ashton’s lady. Cougars, baby!
ME: Uh… okay. Calm it down, buddy.
Point being, now that the most inspirational woman in Media has joined twitter, does that make you want to share your soul, feelings and emotions on the popular site or do you hope that she takes her “Feelings,” and stops tweeting?
