Top 10 Annoying Tweets (you won’t read in China)

It seems the procrastination will not be Twitterized on June 4 or anytime soon in China – Twitter along with other sites have been blocked this week.

While the Twitterverse (mostly expats) will go into a spin about this I thought I’d post up some of those regular posts you’ll be missing out on in the near future:

10 “Man, I’m soooooo busy.” Really? So why are you tweeting this again?

9 “I’m having an awesome time at *insert club/pub*” So awesome that you’re tweeting it. By yourself. In the corner.

8 RT the popular kids “OMFG, Guy Kawasaki just Tweeted something! Quick! Seth Goddin just posted a new blog. Link. Link. Link. RT. RT RT.”

7 “It’s hump day. Only 2 more days till the weekend!!!!” Wednesdays: they happen every week. Man your life is boring.

6 “I have so many emails to answer” Right, so I’ve noticed you tweet a lot but haven’t answered my F*&cking email from last week

5 All day public Twitter conversations. There’s better technology for this (IM,DM, email…) or did you just want everyone to see?

4 “Hey everyone, I have THIS MANY followers” So what? That guy. In that movie. Yeah, he still has a bigger thingy.

3 “Re-Tweet ME! Digg My Link!” We get it, you did something on the Internet. You’re a big boy/girl now.

2 Follow Friday. It’s like one giant… circle thingy.

1 Spamming your friends with an internal monologue of what you’re thinking all day. Like aggregating a top 10 list.

So there you have it. Maybe there are more specific expat Twitter posts which are just as annoying – feel free to add them below and I’ll put them in the article.

*Yes, I originally wrote this on Twitter and has been republished with permission elsewhere but all seem blocked at the moment.
