Twitter Influencers

So today morning, I got a call from a friend who manages a big brand.

He wanted to invite me for his brand-sponsored invite-only party, happening soon in Bombay. And then he told me more about the party, and brought up that they were inviting a lot of ‘Twitter Influencers’ too. He took some names, and my smile turned to a chuckle to a hearty laugh on hearing the names. So many names on my TL were spoken about as ‘the list given by our agency’. Then he asked me the inevitable, “Howcome your name doesn’t feature on this Influencers’ list?”

It was all so amusing for me, forcing me to think how half of my timeline has made it a part-time career for themselves. So much so, that being active on twitter brings with it an assumption that it is the sole reason for one to be there – to be a Twitter Influencer.

Fun times!

That kind of a day…

…When human beings disappoint you.

When you realise that your life is yours and yours alone.

When you promise to yourself never to expect people to be ‘there’ for you. If they do, that’d be a bonus.

When you appreciate the genuine concern and care some people have for you.

When you stand up for yourself without letting someone else run over you.

When you snap out of the doormat mindset.

And oh, when a dog that you’ve never ever met before stops mid-walk much to the chagrin of his companion walker, on seeing on you on the road and insists that you spend time with him.

Reality or Force-fit?

 

Impatient. Sentimental. Passionate. Outspoken.

You?

Boys will be boys

“You’ve gone awfully silent!”

Call me talkative when I talk. Hate me when I ask questions. Don’t reply when I initiate a conversation.

And yet, insinuate with the above words when I don’t do any of that.

Silence.

My new friend. Not too friendly, but once you start getting comfortable, it lets you befriend it.

I think I can get used to it.
