Everyone's got something they're not telling someone, and most of the time, it's good just to say it and get it off your chest. Whether it's something serious, or just plain embarrassing, say it here.

Here are the TOP 5 reasons I'm a Tweedict:
1. Many people I interact with a lot use Twitter.
2. Many people on Facebook post statuses which just irritate the hell out of me. Eg. "My mother said no to the iPhone. She's such a bitch! FML." and these are people I know in real life so it would be incredibly awkward to unfriend. I tend to not go on it much so where else can I go to keep up to date about people? Twitter! I keep up with everyone easily and when I see someone the next day; I can say; "Oh my gods, where did you get that gorgeous pair of shoes?!" because they'd posted the picture. I like to know what's going on with the lives of the people I care about - yes, including their new shoes.
3.The DM feature is a substitute for text messaging so I don't have to spend money since I'm using an unlimited data plan.
4. News spreads so fast there that I barely need to pick up the newspaper to know what's going on in the world - and I won't get smelly, inky fingers flipping the pages! (People like me are probably contributing to the death of traditional print newspapers.)
5. It's easy to broadcast a message I need many people to see; comes in incredibly handy during the stressful moments of meeting assignment deadlines. "PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR RESEARCH MATERIAL TOMORROW EVERYONE," works faster than individually texting all of them. And those heart-attack inducing moments. It usually goes like this. Someone tweets; "Finally. Reached 2000 words." And some poor bloke would tweet back; "ZOMG WTF I THOUGHT IT WAS ONLY 1000 WORDS."
