Frogger

I feel like Frogger. Remember the 80’s video game where a little green thing tries to cross the street without getting crushed? That’s me. Only I’m the virtual version, and the street I’m trying to cross is Twitter Avenue.

I see you seasoned Twitter vets with your fancy hashtags and “at” symbols twitting and tweeting like it’s the most natural thing in the world. Me? Not so much. These little tweets, as I’ve learned, are like a scrolling board of hieroglyphics. Just when I start to understand one message, another one comes along. It’s maddening!

Then I go online and read blog posts like The Ten Dumbest Things You Can Do on Twitter and Twitter Terror, Amateurs Beware.

The pressure–it’s too much!

Here’s a YouTube clip from an intersection in Ethiopia that pretty much shows how I feel. The cars zooming along without hesitation are most of you. Me? I’m the dude wavering on the corner.

Two steps up– back, back! Another step forward—ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
