Addicted to... Twitter?

I was looking around the world wide web, doing some random reading, as my habit, when I chanced upon an article about Twitter Addiction, and what do you know, I was tweeting my life away when I found this, hahaha.

While it is true that twitter is a great social application, some tech geeks find a general weakness for it which often ends up to uncontrollable use of the media.

1. Compulsive checking of new tweets, even if you just did it a moment ago

2. Tweeting so often you can’t trace responses to you, which forces you to check your own tweets just to keep up

3. Know your TwitterCounter stats by heart and often checks them for updates

4. Have a profile on every single Twitter Influence, but only frequent the ones that tell you nice things

5. Tweets three times in a row about three different things

6. Gets annoyed when no one responses to a tweet of yours

7. Tweet about your hubby or partner, even if they don’t use Twitter

8. Use hashtags even in normal speech

9. The first thing in your hand as soon as you wake up to continue what you’re reading through whatever @s you picked in your sleep

10. You never let anything go on Twitter, ever.

After thorough thinking, I deduced that I am still sane in terms of my love for twitter, how about you?

Worry not though, the author gave a few tricks to start your rehabilitation right away *grins*.

1. Stop your virtual social life and start surrounding yourself with people who does not use twitter.

2. Take a book and move away from any gadgets.

3. Go out more often.

4. Set a tweet per day quota.

5. Take a weekend off from tweeting.

Tweet, tweet...
