Lord love a duck, here’s another reason why high-strung females like me ought to reconsider the whole Twitter thing. Apparently, a high-profile author who I will not name because I don’t want to spread gossip and because I can SO easy see how this would (without a shadow of a doubt) happen to me if I were ever to work hard enough to become a multiple-time bestselling author whose books are made into movies, etc cetera…
Anyway, Famous Author got a not-wonderful review, and was not just ABLE, but perhaps COMPELLED to Tweet her frustrations to hundreds–probably thousands–of her closest friends. Imagine, being angry and having a megaphone, and really, that’s what Twitter is, a high tech megaphone with a long, long range.
Can I just tell you how bad I feel for this brilliant author? Impulse and technology are dangerous bedfellows. That’s so much worse than a reply-all accident, which is bad enough. (But really, who hasn’t done that?)
Fortunately for Famous Author, in our rapid-fire-communication world, we’ll all be Tweeting about something else in three minutes or less.
