Dear Sir Fudge Esq,
Twitter Addiction. The instant gratification of hearing from someone who is a cyber friend. Being able to swap embellished tales without fear of the spouse saying you're full of shit. And, most of all, being able to hide behind the avatar and imagine yourself popular.
I am proud to be a geek who was tortured by the popular kids. However, Twitter has given me a taste of what it's like to be popular. My gorgeous avatar has such witty repartee and isn't awkward around scads of people. It's heaven on earth to not be me for a couple of hours a day.
Yes, even at this ripe old age, you can still become addicted. "Hello. I'm Rudy's mom, and I'm a Twitter addict."
