I woke up yesterday morning to discover that a famous person was following my Twitter. This I found to be quite strange as I had not followed them, and even if I had why would they follow me? They had been mentioned in a tweet I had tweeted a few days ago but this happens to them hundreds, if not thousands, of times a day. Puzzled I took a screenshot of my followers page and e-mailed it off to a friend to tell them that I had won at Twitter and didn’t think any more about it. They would soon unfollow me and life would go on as normal. This morning I woke up to discover that her husband a famous person in his own right was following me on Twitter. This was even stranger, and made the whole incident far more intriguing to me.
How had this come about? The sensible and most probable answer is I got caught up in some kind of automated Twitter program and through circumstances got added to their lists. This answer is also the least fun.
The answer that is more fun, less probable and almost certainly a complete work of fantasy is that while egosurfing Twitter one day they came across the tweet, intrigued and fascinated by it they read through my Twitter feed. Riding the rollercoaster of emotions and developing an almost fondness for it they clicked follow with great glee and joy. This joy bubbled inside them, growing until it spilled out that evening as Honey, love of my life, you must see this Twitter, it is the simply the best! Putting down whatever it was that was occupying his attention, walking over to where ever it was she was reading my Twitter he looked through it out of a sense of duty. Reluctantly at first, then with more interest until finally he was so engrossed that it took him great effort to turn to his wife and say ”Why yes Baby, you are quite correct. This is indeed wonderful, I shall follow it too!”
Life would be very boring without an over-active imagination.
