I am a twitaholic, I love twitter and I think anyone who knows me will verify this.
But I also have a life at home, an amazing wife, beautiful daughter and a fantastic job, and I feel twitter is eating into the majority of my time these days. I have an addictive personality which I am sure has been passed on from my dad, it almost caused a serious rift between me and my wife before, when I played a game called "World of warcraft". This game has been well documented on the web as been a great game which you get totally immersed in. When I decided enough was enough with WOW I checked how long I had been playing for, which you could see when you logged into the game, I had played for over 60 days in the space of 7 months!!! now those are real days, real hours, real seconds of my life in a game! What the fuck is that all about.
Twitter has started to do the same to me, I would be scared to figure out how many days or even months of real time I have spent there, so I made an agreement with myself a good while ago, saying that when I hit 10000 updates I will quit twitter, I hit 10000 updates over 9000 updates ago, people asked me to stay, but since then it has gotten even better, the people I have met through twitter are a fantastic bunch, but I made another agreement with myself and told no one of it, once you hit 1000 followers you really need to cop on and leave.
Well that has just happened and now I have no idea what to do.
My wife has said these words a lot to me lately "you speak more to those people on twitter then you do to me" honestly she is right I do, and now I am seriously worried!
People have said cut down on it, take a break from it! as I say I have an addictive personality that just wont happen, with me it always has to be all or nothing!
What a bizarre quandary to find myself in!
