Twitter, you may want to skip this post. (About a year ago, I would have skipped my own post!)
If you have a Twitter account (click HERE to follow me), do you "follow" other runners?
For those who know nothing about Twitter, two things:
1) Tweet = update your status in 140 characters or less
2) Follow = subscribe to someone's "tweets" so you can see their updates in real-time
Seemingly everyday, I see posts and posts about running. "Gotta get my run done!" "6 miles done!" etc. etc.
And let's not forget Saturday and Sunday mornings, where I see a barrage of "I did my 20-miler!" or "I woke up early to run in the cold."
Is this expected, or annoying?
Does Tweeting about your running somehow become so necessary?
And most of all... am I an annoying runner-Tweeter?
I generated a little "Tweet Cloud" that shows the relative frequency of the words I have used in my tweets over the past three months.
And wouldn't ya know... I see "marathon" there. Also, I think I have been writing a lot about "cold" "morning"s. Oh... and what's this?! "Happy"?!
No word "run" or "mile" in there. *Whew*
