Tweet feat

Saturday, October 22, 2011

In a moment of weakness, we signed up on Twitter and got ourselves a handle which did nothing for the old ego. Apparently, there are 36 other people with a similar name already signed up, so we have to be content with being number 37. Anyway, after signing up, we just ignored the whole phenomenon, and not even people popping up on mail to tell us that they are “following” us could lure us back. That’s the problem, innit? Once you’re in, you’re in.

Yesterday, the accusatory email popped up again and this time, the tone was both arch and reproachful (if such a thing is possible). We’ve missed you on Twitter, it said.  Aren’t you curious to know what you are missing on Twitter right now? Since we did not know whom to tell that honestly, we were not all that hot on social networking, we said nothing, and then noticed the grey blue bar that firmly ordered “View your Twitter home page”.

So resignedly, we did, and discovered that apparently, we were following just two gentlemen with widely differing personalities. SrBachchan and narendramodi.
SrBachchan seemed to be in Australia looking at a huge moon outside his hotel room which made him think of Karva Chauth, narendramodi was mostly about development in Gujarat. But the tone, tenor and subject of Tweets made for an interesting example of point-counterpoint. We shall give you a few from specific days. Please keep in mind that SrBachchan, to the delight of his fans, is much more prolific that the man who would be future prime minister.
