Twitter Takeover

Is it just me, or does Twitter seem to be taking over the airwaves the last few days??

From celebs, to tv personalities, average joe’s, and everyone in between. Twitter seems to be growing steam and shows no sign of slowing down.

I have been twittering (not sure if that can be a verb…) for almost a year now. I felt like I was behind when I started, but now it seems that everyone is playing the catch-up game and jumping on.

Twitter is like crack (I have never done crack…but for all relative purposes, you know what I mean). The more time you spend on twitter, the more you want to tweet more, and more, and more. I think I have sent about 4 messages while I am writing this post.

For lent, I gave up posting tweets on Twitter. I had become somewhat (very) obsessed with my online persona. That is the allure of the online world; you can be anyone you want to be. I became consumed more with wanting people to know me than knowing myself in the real world.

The Twitter/ Facebook fast began. The first week or so was pretty difficult. Every time anything happened, I wanted to share it with the world. But, as time went on, things got better. God showed me so much about myself during my fast. I will share more about it in the future.

I want to be myself online and offline.

This is something I have struggled with on the blog as well. It is easy to say something profound, insightful, or provactive; it is a different story to live it.

That is where the rubber meets the road.

I want my what I say and what I do to match. I want to share my life with other, but I want to share MY LIFE, not the life I wish I had.

It is a daily choice I must make to not fake it. Just like faking a prayer or saying some scripted “christanease” saying just because it was ‘fitting’. I want God to be pleased with my life. I want Him to shine through…and we both cannot be the star at the same time.

That’s it for now. More to come soon…
