Top Five Reasons Why I Wish You Were Tweeting

This is not a list of why you *should* be on Twitter. I’m sure everyone has already told you all about that. But have I told you why *I* want you on twitter?

Please, hear me out.

1. I MISS YOU

Yes, it’s true. I miss you! I know it’s not the Olden Days where we use to pick up phones and actually call each other but you know what? Just because we’re a bit busier now doesn’t mean I don’t like knowing what you’re up to. And on that note…

2. DEEP DOWN, WE’RE ALL CREEPY STALKERS

Admit it. You know it’s true. Sometimes you miss me too, maybe it’s 2 in the morning and you don’t know what time zone I’m in so you don’t want to risk calling and it’s actually 5am and then we’re no longer friends. Isn’t it nice to click a few links and know what I’ve been up to in the 2 days since we talked? Ok, maybe you don’t care. Actually I know you don’t care but I do! See: Reason Number One

3. I CAN’T BE THERE TO SEE WHAT YOU MADE FOR DINNER

I can’t always come over for dinner but that doesn’t mean I don’t wanna see what you’re cookin’ up! Please, post pictures, recipes…anything! While you’re at it, you know I really want to see how your kids/turtle/fish/dog/garden are progressing as well. I can’t always be there to see it first hand, but it doesn’t mean I don’t want you to share it with me 🙂

4. YOU’RE FUNNY. AND YOU KNOW IT.

Sometimes you think of your funniest thoughts and ideas when you’re alone. What are you going to do, wait until the next time you call me, 5 weeks from now, to tell me all about it? Just tweet it. And while you’re at it, make a funny face and post that too. You never know when I might need you to cheer me up.

5. BREAKING NEWS

Sometimes in life, between our jobs and commute and attempt to pursue leisure, we miss out on what is going on in the rest of the world. If you find something out that interests you, would you tell me about it? If you tweet it, I will know about it right away and you never know who else might be interested too! Don’t hide your breaking news away from us…inquiring minds want to know!

Well there you have it. There’s why I would love it if you joined me on twitter and helped me feel a little closer to you, even though we’re out here living our lives. Thanks 🙂
