You could call me a late bloomer when it came to the social media craze. I never was on Black Planet or MySpace. Facebook was the 1st vehicle I drove and that began in 2009. This was solely to promote a business venture. After 24 hours, I had connected with people I had not seen in years (almost a decade). The newness of FB wore off and I journeyed to Twitterland. This was a place to express my real time sentiment without judgement or filters. Somehow that joy has run its course.
After 12780 tweets, the account of Marlea Z. Wilson or @stoical127 was sent into auto-pilot. I kept saying after I tweet my birthday (1/27/80) I was going to walk away. It was hard. After working in social media for almost 2 years, the last thing I think about is tweeting in my spare time. Due to the blog being linked to my Twitter account, there are more than 12,780 now. It’s still a vehicle for readers to use to get updates on my latest posting.
There are a lot of days when I have so much to say, but I refrain from checking in to Twitter. I miss it some what because it’s very entertaining to read the tweets, convos and infamous direct messages. Moreover, I think I’ve added a few more hours back into my life by not scrolling so much, lol. The increase in time was contagious and Instagram felt a slight reduction as well.
I’m sure I won’t be missed much because my followers still know how to find me. What more could I ask for from Twitter, I chatted with Oprah. If you check the date on this tweet and my 1st blog post, I bet you can surmise the impact this had on me. So with no further ado, let the 2014 countdown begin!! 🙂
