Tweet tweet (Post 28)

Since many of you who read me here are not on twitter, I thought I would compile a list of all the interesting stuff that i tweeted over the last few days, for today's post.

Here are the tweets that I sent out or retweeted which struck a chord in me.

And finally this one:
:) My twitter handle @preetishenoy
 Good night folks--until tomorrow :)
And yes, keep those comments coming--else I feel i am talking to a wall! ____________________________________________________________________________________________

  1. do you cross post on FB too? I don't use twitter :(!

    1. No no!! I don't cross-post my twitter to FB! :) But I cross-post what I put up on my FB author page to twitter.

      Twitter is really awesome because you can connect with those that stimulate you. You can pick and choose who you want to follow and best of all no-one is anyone's 'friend' on twitter :) (yes--there are a lot of twitter crushes happening though) Twitter is entirely a different world.

      Both serve entirely different purposes--and I really wouldn't want whatever I post on twitter to be posted on FB :) It would be like eating how white rice topped with chocolate sauce :P :) (It just doesn't work)

  2. ma'am i'm following you all over the web, dont worry i'll read this blog till the end

  3. I don't know how to use twitter! sad and true! the last one was hilarious!

    1. Twitter is AWESOME. Do watch THIS if you want to learn how to use it.

  4. Thanks for the whole collection under one roof.
    I expect another quote from you, which really impressed me a lot.
    "If someone not responded your call or text, leave them and let it go. They made a space for someone in the future".
    I used to remember this quote whenever i hated by some one. I love this quote.


    1. Hey prabhu
      This is not the whole collection at all!!! Oh no..I just picked some random ones which struck a chord.

      The whole collection would be more than 16,000 tweets!

      yes, some of the quotes are great :)

  5. Since I am not a Twitter fan, I'll construct some imaginary tweets

    - I just brushed my teeth
    - My left toe itched. Felt good scratching it
    - @PS sent me a SMS. I replied to it
    - I have 24 mails in my Inbox including five from Nigerian bankers

    And such other earth shattering and awe inspiring news that is so characteristic of this medium. By the way , why is something that is on Twitter not a Twit and instead a Tweet ???

    1. Hey Ramesh,
      The good thing about twitter is one does not need to follow Twits who tweet things such as my left toe itched. Like any social media, you can CHOOSE how *YOU* use it.
      You could follow BBC on twitter @BBCWorld and get updates of what is happening in the world.(No need for television or to login online. All you need is your phone.) Or you could follow Economic Times @Economictimes on twitter and get the updates of what is happening in the business world.

      Or maybe you want to read great articles which relate to your field of interest on Huffington post, or perhaps TIME (whom I follow).

      I have connected with some truly brilliant minds on Twitter (some really big names internationally.) --and am in regular touch with them, thanks to twitter.

      It has not only helped me grow as a person, but it has also taken me places, professionally.

      No matter how busy one is, it takes a few seconds to type out a 140 character message. And what is amazing is the content that can be sent out in those 140 characters.

      Personally I have retweeted many many times, requests for blood, when a person is in dire need of blood, fighting for their life in a hospital. Such tweets go viral within a few seconds, and the speed and quickness of the medium to bring about action is just unbeatable.

      There is a project called blank noise on twitter which speaks up against street violence. There are many organizations such as Goonj which mobilize resources, through their tweets, in times of tragedies like the recent one in Kedarnath. One tweet and the action is swift, within it gets retweeted many times.

      There is so much other good stuff happening on twitter like initiatives being taken for child sexual abuse, initiatives for animals being abandoned, NGOs working with under-privileged for the cause of education etc.

      When michael jackson passed away, I got to know within 6 minutes of his death, even before the news channels went public with the news.

      Twitchhiker is a book written by Paul Smith, who used twitter to travel around the world.

      There are just so many uses and possibilities that twitter offers, that if I start elucidating, it would be another blog-post by itself.

      Yes, the tweets that I have show-cased here, might not particularly be 'news-worthy' or even important.I just picked the ones which i wanted to share on my blog :) (which has never featured current affairs anyway!). They are not to be taken as representative sample of what the twitter world is all about.

      Now excuse me, I have to tweet that I answered Ramesh's questions on my blog,becuse it is really important for me, to share this piece of earth-shattering information with the world ;-) And oh yes--my left toe is itching too :D
      :) :D


    2. Wow. An offhand mischievous comment and it elicited virtually a full post from you. Much honoured :)

    3. :) Ah well--what can I say! You had the inclination and I had the time :)

  6. Hmmm.. Your post and reply to Ramesh really made me feel.. I am missing a lot by not being active on twitter... Twitter here I come... :-D

    1. :) Choose carefully whom to follow---else your timeline gets clogged with annoying stuff!!

    2. Thanks for your advice.. Will definitely try to be !:-)

  7. I'm gonna get active on twitter too:) loved the compilation of tweets:) But why havent you replied to yesterday's post. You had mentioned you will mention if you replied to your fan in the next post.

Life is so unpredictable. Stop judging! #Sridevi

This morning I woke up to the news of the legendary Sridevi, being no more at 54. I have grown up watching her movies. She is a tremendously talented actor.

I have been reading so many write-ups about her. There are whatsapp forwards, blog posts, news reports, status updates and so much more.

What I do not understand is how people comment on her personal life. They have watched her movies, or met her at an event, or know her through 'friends of friends' etc. They talk about how she 'tried to hold on to her beauty', how she went under the scalpel, how she was stressed etc etc.
Everything about her is open game --no matter what the truth is.

I am saddened reading these discussions.

I lost my father to a cardiac arrest. He was healthy,  fit as a fiddle, had none of the age related ailments and looked so much younger for his years. He had twice the energy of someone half his age. Even on the day he passed away, he had gone for his usual 6 km walk. He was just 66.  It was…

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.

I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…


Be that man Who looks his woman in the eye when he gets home And says ‘You look beautiful, darling.’ And means it. Because this thing you have going is Sacred
Be that man Who offers his woman a back rub, a glass of wine Or coffee Or simply some time and space Where she can be herself. Because this thing you have going is Sacred

Be that man Who doesn’t make jokes about his woman, behind her back Because she is too precious, too dear Some things you do not joke about Because this thing you have going is Sacred.
Be that man Who would drop everything in a jiffy to be beside her Not because she cannot manage But because you know how much she hates to do it all by herself Tell her she is strong and brave, And hold her hand Because this thing you have going is Sacred ______________________ **************© 2018 Preeti ShenoyFor more poems click here.
