The Maranda Writes

You HAVE the Right to know!!

As I have professed before, I am a Twitter fiend! I do not know how I could get through the day without obsessively checking my timeline throughout the day.  Most of my friends also have Twitter, so I can keep abreast of what they are doing without having to actually call them.  Its great!

Since I have had my account since last summer, I consider myself an advent and pretty knowledgable user.  I have tried to pull myself away from it for a day, but I had to resist the urge.  This “urge” has led me to wonder if I have a Twitter addiction..

I found this site that offers 29 signs of Twitter addiction. Read through this list and see if any of these sings you can relate to. I know I found myself in a couple..
