Do You Tweet? :)
Thank you Nuala for the useful tips. You always seem to find a way to explain things in simple way. I bet a lot of the readers wish to have an English teacher like you. You were right guessing about the boot. I apologize if some of my previous posts might sound offensive, but that wasn't my intention at all. I am just viewing things according to my Asian background (although the history had recorded fact about same sex attraction centuries ago) . As for political view, I don't really get myself thinking about it much (although I would prefer to vote for a neutral party that value women and children equally).
If blogging isn't enough, there is something called microblogging. One of the rising stars is Twitter, a kind of social network where you can share what you are doing at the moment. Unlike You Tube, Twitter needed longer time to be accepted and embraced by people. Several years ago, the idea of sharing "status" through the web just didn't seem like a big deal. One day, some celebrities like Ashton Kutcher joined in and grabbed the world's attention. I once followed his tweets when he was trying to be "the King", but somehow I couldn't relate to what he was saying... Today, I only follow like 20 people, and also join other similar network, such as Plurk. With Plurk, it is a lot more informal, and you can play with emoticons and try to reach "Nirvana" by adding more karma. Fun!
Well, there is funny news that became a trending topic in my country recently. The news became a headline, and there will be a "behind the scene" movie about it, too. There is this talented Indonesian director/ screenwriter who joined Twitter. One day, out of nowhere, he posted something like this:
As you noticed the highlighted sentence at the bottom, the guy promised to walk naked inside the mini market because he didn't have thousand of followers at that time. He didn't think that he was going to reach 3000 (or did he?) Apparently the news spread in an hour, and guess what??! His followers became more than 3000! It was so funny because everybody put comments after comments on him (#jokoanwar) and applaud him for his bravery that night. He did walk inside Circle K naked. While some said that the politicians should keep their promises like Joko Anwar, the guy himself said, "It's so hard to get people to watch my movies, yet so easy to get them to see me naked!!"... *lols*
Do you join the micro blog world, too?
