we’re encouraged to forget, preference to be forcefed

there’re so many other voices. i don’t know what to say. i doubt anyone will hear me. i’m obviously referring to twitter here. i love twitter, i hate twitter. i have a twitter account, but the last tweet i retweeted was on election night, someone asking if it was like sports, and how it was weird that people followed sports, because if the election was like watching a sport, then sports couldn’t be that enjoyable.. it was said better by the op. i don’t really like sports, honestly, unless you count like jumping out of a plane or jumping off a building (with a parachute, duh), as sports. yeah, i’m big on jumping.

but yeah, as i said, it can always be said better by someone else. so i don’t bother tweeting anything. plus my life is killer boring and sad. so what do i tweet about? my witty observations? i don’t have any. plus i only have one twitter follower that i know in real life, so i’m lost in the twitter sea of weird and more witty strangers.

i mostly follow self-styled geopolitical analysts, lol, which should be a bigger joke in my opinion. plus journalists, and the occasional meme/satire account. i used to follow MENA conflicts much more closely than i do now, it was my obsession. but the depression^TM shut that down after a while. i’m going to start referring to my depression as the party police, except what kind of party involves following al qaeda/nusra sympathizers to see what’s up wit them. like, who parties like that? I dO.

i even learned (ahem, tried to learn) a little turkish to see if i could follow turkish journalists and other types. yeah, and that worked out great. i can now at least recognize turkish in a lineup and point it out as the language that robbed me of my valuable time and left me for dead. but understanding it written, and understanding it spoken are two different animals. plus my accent sucks, it has been implied.

lately i’ve just been liking random tweets here and there, like i’m a bot or something. i actually kind of like the idea of people thinking i’m a bot account. unless they block me or unfollow me. that would probably not feel nice. bots have feelings too, or will one day, i hope.
