Best tweets from last month were, "ehh"
My November and December tweets of the month featured more than 65 items each. For eight weeks, I was on fire. Alas, the fire has extinguished. This month’s 8days2amish haul is just 24 and, really, they’re not that great.
Ah, Twitter muse, you are fickle damsel.
I tried to weed out the really crappy ones and most of these are decent. Still, when I have a down month like this I always buoy my mood by reminding myself that no one really cares.
Afterall, it’s only Twitter.
