How About Not Following Me on Twitter

Andy Cohen defends his position not to succumb to the pull of Twitter.

My ex-boyfriend texted me the other day and said "I need you to follow me on Twitter." 

I said "How about I need you to pick up the phone."

I keep getting e-mails asking when I am going to Tweet, and Bravo is very involved in the tweet movement (you can follow Bravo HERE) but for now I just can't. I am already recklessly and
humiliatingly oversharing on this blog; the idea of me giving play-by-play of what's going on inside my bonehead is a car crash waiting to happen.

I enjoyed Katie Couric's quote the other day: "I Twitter and blog very selectively.... I don't think anybody gives a rat's ass whether I am about to eat a tuna sandwich. I don't even care. Some of it is so inane and narcissistic and bizarre I don't quite get it. I don't know why anyone would want to read it, much less why I would want to write it."

I guess OC Housewife Tamra didn't read Couric's quote. I got an invite to follow her on Twitter the other day. What will she say and might I actually need to subscribe?

Before I tweet, I have to master the art of the Facebook Status Update. For now, I am paralyzed by the notion of coming up with clever and timely content for my FSU (Facebook Status Update). I do enjoy reading others' though:

You can count on Billy Eichner to start a backlash: "Billy fxx'ing hates Susan Boyle" 11 hours ago.

Liza updates with grace, ease, and energy. I give you Yesterday at 11:57 am: "Liza Loves Target!"

Ricki Lake must have been at karaoke 9 hours ago when she posted: "Ricki is a complete Alicia Keys wannabe"

John Hill reads the collective mindset, and posts: "Someone pleeeeeaaase build a moon colony soon?? There are too many people in La. Get rid of half of them somehow pleeeease. Too many." Yesterday at 6:48 pm.

RHNYC Jill is, always and without fail, uniquely Jill.  "Jill Is heading to Maryland for my best friend's youngest daughter's Bat Mitzvah. I don't fit into anything and I'm in BIG trouble." About An Hour Ago

And so is RHOC Vicki: "Vicki is heading to Naples, FL until Monday. Whoohoo!" Yesterday at 3:20

Harvey Fierstien is waving the flag and fighting the fight: "Harvey continues to be amazed that the Catholic Church, an organization that for hundreds of years has taken money from the poor to pay off the families of children raped by their priests, can still say they oppose gay marriage as the protectors of family values. AMAZING DISGRACE" Yesterday at 5:47

Hey I just came up with a real meta one for right now: "Andy Is blogging about Facebook Status Updates". 

If I do start to Twitter, I'll keep you posted. Second by second.

CAB REPORT: What I love about Luis Then is that he loves classic pop and ain't afraid to blast it out of cab 5M17. I heart classic pop, Luis, and today.

Have a great weekend.
