Relationships 2.0: Dating in 140 Characters or Less
Twitter, a microblogging, lifestreaming website where people send messages to groups and directly to each other, has emerged as a newer, safer way to interact. Is group flirting the way to go? Is it better or more intimate than giving phone numbers. Apparently for some, it absolutely is.
I was talking to a friend the other day who was telling me about this girl he met at a coffee shop. She noticed that he had the same laptop as she did and sparked a conversation. They talked for an hour before she had to go.
“Did you get her number?” I asked.
“No, but I got her Twitter. That’s even better!” he replied.
Wow. What a world we live in.
Here is one of the responses to the post:
That’s crazy, but I’m going to side with him on this one. I think you can learn quite a bit about someone via Twitter. It’s a great way to build relationships without being a huge distraction or interruption since you have the ability to reply whenever you feel it’s necessary.
For me, I have never quite understood the Twitter phenomenon. Then again, I never got the Facebook and MySpace thing either.
