Twitter Soliloquy (or I’m Probably On Shakespeare’s Hit List Now)



To #Tweet or not to #Tweet-- that is the #question:
Whether ‘tis #BetterUseOfTime to #suffer
This #exercise in #banality and #wasted #bandwidth

Or #TakeaStand against #SocialMedia
And by #opposing kill my #platform. To not #Tweet, to #disappear--
No more--and by not rising in the #Search Engine #rankings we end
The #headache, and the #thoughts of #confusion
That #MiddleAged #housewives are heir to. ‘Tis an #escape
Desperately to be #wished. To not #Tweet, to #disappear--
To #disappear--Perchance to #dream my #writing speaks for itself: ay, there’s the #KickInTheTeeth,
For in that drop in the ranks what #dreams may #survive
When we have cast aside our #StatusUpdates,
It just makes us #cry. There’s the #PainInTheAss
That makes #failures of well written #blogs.
For who has the #energy to #BuildReadership and #GrowPlatform,
Face the #bloggers #nemesis, the #NecessaryEvil,
Suffer the pangs of #desired #growth, attain #Googles #love,
The #attention of #HuffingtonPost, and the #retweets
That makes it all worthwhile,
To spend arduous hours #writing
And bear your #soul? Who would take the #time
To #type and #toil and #Tweet and #LinkedIn,
But in #hopes of one day being #discovered,
The #blessed #PublishingContract, for which
We all #dream and #pray for, scour our #minds for the #PerfectPost
And making ourselves #slaves to the #computer
#Facebooking
to a #BetterLife than the one we live? Thus #necessity does make #cowards of us all,
And so my #resolution to forego these #social #ills
Is but a #shadow to my #reality and #desire,
And my grand #words or #refusal to #PlayNice
In regards to all things #Social are cast aside
And lose their #momentum in the #face of #success--Soft now,
My #CellPhones alert!--My #answering #Tweet
But #proof I’m full of #crap. (-1632)
