100+ Signs That You Are Addicted to Twitter

Twitter, one of the most popular social networks in the world. Are you addicted? Maybe? No? Ask yourself this, “Are you really being honest with yourself?” I think the answer might come as a no. I don’t blame you. Something is really fascinating about viewing 140 character messages rolling up on your screen every minute of the day. Besides there are thousands and thousands of articles sifting through tweets each and every day. Now coming back to the actual question, “Are you addicted?”

7 Signs You’re Addicted to Twitter

1. You now think in sentences of 140 characters or less.

2. Whenever a big news item breaks, you can’t wait to log on and see what others are saying about it on Twitter.

3. If something funny/annoying/ unusual happens to you, your first thought is how you’re going to tweet it.

4. You’re considering getting an iPhone – purely “because it’s so much easier to tweet on the move.”

5. You rely on Twitter’s trending topics to tell you what people are talking about.

6. You discover a new comedian/singer /product and immediately log on to see if they have a Twitter page.

7. You scorn any friends/colleagues who aren’t on Twitter….if they’re not on Facebook either, then they’re not worth talking to.

The Rest of the List is Articles Listed on Different sites.

    Thank you! I normally preferred to indicate in my website.

    Is this a sign, I own 11 twitter accounts and 4 are fairly active, the other 7 are occasionally active, because I have multiple ideas, and pen names, and Twitter is a writer’s mecca

    Now up to 13 accounts, 2 road safety, 2 comedy, 5 author, restaurant concept, boardgame idea, personal, and F1 race play by play. Should I enter political ring for 14?

    I hope it was a genuine laugh, and not at my expense, unreleased jordans, check my comedy tweets @acronymr and @threeforcesevil

    Well, I can’t say I read all the 10s, but I instantly thought, I want to put an @ in front of someone’s name!!

    What a great compilation of addiction signs which I never knew existed!

  18. Reply Christie April 2, 2011 at 5:46 AM

    Interesting! :) But I’m really amazed at how powerful Twitter has become. Some people even treat it as a way to reach out and communicate. Sort of like a diary where they can relate their feelings, ideas, hopes, fears and almost anything else!

  19. Reply Steve June 8, 2011 at 6:25 PM

    That ubiquitous “@” says it all. If you find yourself typing it in, unnecessarily and at uncalled for instances, then, yes … you’re a Twitter addict! :)

  20. Reply Robert July 20, 2011 at 7:55 PM

    I hate it when people continually say, “Follow me on Twitter.” Sorry … can’t do that. I have a life so I can’t waste too much time snooping around your own business.

    Ain’t I a bore, huh? ;)

  21. Reply Sandra August 18, 2011 at 12:05 PM

    Twitter has gotten so popular that, sooner or later, “tweet” will become an official word in the dictionary. Gotta catch up! (Give me time, though … after all, my Facebook account is just a few months old and I’m still trying to get the hang of things. ;) )
