Falling for Twitter many years ago was easy and from there it just seemed that the relationship worked. There was little drama and much passion. Everyday we would be together side by side loving the interaction. So when things started to change I just could not see. I defended my love even when others were critical. I believed in the love of Twitter. Certainly things were not over and I knew in my heart that we would find our way back to each other.
Yesterday my eyes were opened to the change. The brightness of the truth could no longer be denied and I could not shut it out.
I had been cheating on Twitter with Facebook!
It is a hard truth to come to terms with but I had to moved on. I dried my tears and took a deep breath. I would tell Twitter today. While I felt the strength I would speak my truth. I had fallen out of love with Twitter.
I went to Twitter to plead my case. To explain that I did not mean for this happen, it just did. I still loved Twitter but I wasn't in love anymore. While I watch my Twitter stream I looked for an opening, a place to start a conversation. Twitter did not have time for me anymore. It was no longer about our conversations or our shared passions. Now it was all about 'read my blog post' and 'look at me'.
Tears filled my eyes as I realize that Twitter never even missed me. When I started to see Facebook more and more to find the intimacy of conversation I had not seen that Twitter was moving away from me. Twitter had gotten over me even before I realized I had left.
It will take a while to get over the loss and I know I will go back time to time to visit but it will never be the same. The time for conversation has moved on as Twitter has lost it's loving feeling for me.
