Ok, so I thought I would drop in today with an update of my first full day of being apart of Twitter. My first impression is that it isn't as bad as I thought it was... for some people. For others that i've made the mistake of following, it's worse than I imagined.
Some people give links to what they worked on that day, or tips on getting into comics. These type of things are very helpful to many people.
Some people are tragically in need of 11 kinds of attention and seem to just sit and wait for a "tweet" so that they can then pounce on it with some want-so-hard-to-be-witty reply that it actually disturbs me a bit. I guess that's the problem. Comedy rarely gets translated well thru words. It's about delivery and timing and inflection. Typing out a sarcastic or witty remark just reads as snobby and pompous, never funny. And when done 20 times in a row it seems a bit sad and pathetic... but still not funny.
Twitter. I'm on it now, but it's still strange and I'm sure I'll find myself not following many people. I am happy with the positive points of it for now. I'll keep you up to day on my "progress"... haha.
Since today's post didn't have much of a point, I'll top it off with some art in the same vein. A page of doodles.
