When will my tweets on twitter cause a furore?
When I tweet, nobody appreciates them, When will I become famous? When will I become important enough for people to want to know about my life’s every tiny little detail? Whether I‘ll be celebrating holi or not? If not, then what would I be doing instead and where would I be going? Which conference hall would I be lecturing in and who all will be there to cheer me?
God when will you make me important enough, so that when I dedicate some tweet to someone, the world notices and comments? When I check into a hotel and I tweet, people go,’ Wow’. When I don’t like the room and demand to be shifted out to another one, I tweet, and people go, ‘double wow’, and when I tweet about helping the poor overworked staff in shifting to a better room, people go, ‘what a woman!!!’.
When will my dinner become a topic of discussion? My choice of restaurant, a news bulletin and the number of dishes I order a national concern? When, What I’m going to dig my fork into becomes an event to be awaited with bated breath and when will people not pluck out their eyes in frustration at my nonsensical tweets. When will all this happen?
When I am a well-known actress and I check into a seven star hotel and tweet about the fishes in the aquarium and how my room is located inside the glass aquarium, everybody starts marvelling at my good fortune, never mind the fact that the producers or organizers of the show or movie are paying through their nose for my hideously expensive room. My tweets are my own and my followers are amazed at my witty comments. I go to the bathroom and tweet, ‘More fishes here’, and the world goes, ‘cho chweet.
God, when will I become so famous? When will my tweets cause a furore, on Twitter?
