Just because I’m paranoid, doesn’t make it not true. 😛
I have both a Twitter and Facebook account and I check both fairly often throughout the day. But I don’t overly pay attention to friend numbers on either. Today I happened to look over and was a little surprised at what I saw (I bet some of your numbers are much bigger than mine 🙂 ).
I have 213 friends on Facebook.
That can’t be right. Do I actually know that many people?
Hmmm, maybe it is. I do seem to confirm a lot of friend requests.
Twitter claims 174 people are following me.
I knew it! I am being followed!!!
Do I know you?, yes you over there.
Hmmm, maybe yes, maybe no, but you obviously know me or you wouldn’t be following me.
And supposedly I follow 96 people.
I think they are exaggerating there, I mean really who has time to follow that many people around.
No wonder I never get anything done.
Some time ago, my oldest daughter informed my I needed friends. I told her I have friends (look above, I have LOTS of friends 🙂 ) She told me they don’t count, they are virtual friends.
Which I take to mean, you all don’t exist. Bet you didn’t know that did ya? I must have a very active imagination to populate it with that many people.
Which brings up an interesting point, if you all don’t exist, who have I been talking to all this time. I haven’t been talking to myself have I? I mean it is possible, stranger things have happened. But I am pretty sure that I have had real conversations.
And why are you all following me? Do I have a stupid sign on my back? Come on tell me, do I?
And if you all don’t exist, does that mean I don’t exist to the people I follow? I mean obviously I would be considered a virtual friend too.
Uh oh, this is starting make my head hurt, I think I’m going to go lie down and think about it later. So all of you out there following me, shhhhhhh, it’s quiet time. 😛
