Do You Twitter?

December 12, 2008 by  


My name is Kath and I am a Twitter addict.  It’s true. I feel the constant need to tell people what I’m thinking/feeling/watching/doing 24/7 (like you really care – believe me, I know you don’t).  I’m constantly trying to boil down my life into 140 characters or less.  It’s a problem.

I’m not saying it’s healthy, but I absolutely am addicted to keeping up with what my Twitter friends are up to. What time of day is @duckydoestv going to see his trainer? What new movie quote is @raelee going to serve up to me today?  Is @mytakeontv running or running away?  Who will @greggrunberg try to cast on ‘Heroes’ via Twitter today? What news is @moryan retweeting? @justjody is gives me the goods on Canada, while @jamesgunn serves as the personal publicist for @terranaomi. Every once in a while @tinafey chimes in to make me happy.  @jimmyfallon is now on board.  And I’m constantly reminding myself that no, I am no friends with @wilw despite how much I know what’s going on in his life.

Again, this is not normal.  But I can’t help it.

If you are a GMMR reader and a Twitter user and want to share your “@” with us, please do so in the comments.

If you want to follow my often mundane and often nonsensical tweets, follow me at:

If you are new to Twitter and join in as a result of this post…don’t say I didn’t warn you.

P.S.  The new GMMR (yeah I know, I know, I’ve been talking about it forever), will have a page dedicated to the Twitters of GMMR readers.  I just set up a Twitter account featuring GMMR readers.  Start following other TV fans today: I think it will be fun!!

    I, too, have no choice but to check Twitter 10,000 times a day to see what people are up to.


  2. Steve on December 12th, 2008 4:07 pm

    Love twitter but don’t post all that often…


  3. Gretchen on December 12th, 2008 4:16 pm

    I love your tweets, Kath!
    I’m on there as gretchasketch

  4. Kat on December 12th, 2008 4:21 pm

    I need convincing to join… I guess I just don’t understand the appeal of it. Help me out so I can get addicted too!!

  5. Wanda on December 12th, 2008 4:25 pm

    I’m on there @wandawa17.

  6. Hilary on December 12th, 2008 4:36 pm

    I’m on there. Not addicted, but love it.


  7. JennyL on December 12th, 2008 4:36 pm

    I’m looking forward to the GMMR 2.0!


  8. kari on December 12th, 2008 4:42 pm

    Great idea! I’m out there @karigee — thanks Kath.

  9. ColoradoKila on December 12th, 2008 4:43 pm

    Kath – I am addicted & have been following you and most of the people you mentioned for about a year.

    Don’t think you are following me though.


  10. Philboy on December 12th, 2008 4:44 pm

    You should also have a section for GMMR writers who have twitter.

    Like me!



  11. Tim G. on December 12th, 2008 4:51 pm

    Ever since getting my iPhone, I’ve become a twitter fiend.

    @rural_juror, here.

  12. Sara A. on December 12th, 2008 4:52 pm

    I follow you and a few that you mention. Never met you before but feel like we’re friends.


  13. Laiq on December 12th, 2008 4:52 pm

    I’m on there, and certainly follow you and Dan – not that either of you ever respond to the @’s I send…


  14. anne on December 12th, 2008 4:59 pm

    I’ve been twit-addicted since I discovered TwitterFox for my browser. It keeps me entertained all day at work.


  15. Arica on December 12th, 2008 5:00 pm

    Twitter is the best!


  16. Kaitlin on December 12th, 2008 5:05 pm

    Love Twitter – I’m @Kaitlin862 over there. Since I was able to intergrate it with Outlook at work, I can now check a million times a day without anyone knowing I’m not working with email like a good employee. 🙂

  17. Jason the TVaholic on December 12th, 2008 5:11 pm

    Can’t believe how much time I spend on Twitter. Have become a bit of a twitteraholic as well I guess.

    you can find me at

  18. Kat on December 12th, 2008 5:15 pm

    Ok, so I joined – it doesn’t take much to influence me!


  19. Mags on December 12th, 2008 5:23 pm

    I’m not an addict! Really, no problem here. Honest.


  20. lemoñadé on December 12th, 2008 5:29 pm

    I follow you on twitter, GMMR. I sometimes respond to your tweets then think, “she has no idea who I am” after the fact. It is very addicting!

    I’m @rodriguez14 on twitter.

  21. Haya on December 12th, 2008 5:39 pm

    I think I check Twitter more than my email. So addicted!

  22. Drake on December 12th, 2008 5:55 pm

    Loooove twitter!


  23. Trish on December 12th, 2008 6:00 pm

    Twitter addict and GMMR reader. I, too, have to remind myself that @wilw is not my bff.

  24. Amy Yen on December 12th, 2008 6:11 pm

    Excellent, so happy to see so many other GMMR readers on Twitter. 🙂 I love talking TV on Twitter…everyone’s got an opinion.

    @amyyen Feel free to follow & talk TV w/me!

  25. Jennifer on December 12th, 2008 6:12 pm

    I swear, Twitter is like crack. I can’t go more than an hour without checking.


  26. Martha on December 12th, 2008 6:20 pm

    looove twitter. plus I use it for professional networking!


  27. Kara on December 12th, 2008 6:48 pm

    new twitter joinee…i’m sure soon to be twitter-addict.

    passing the blame to my work for “wanting to be involved” in social networking. all the random tv/entertainment twitters I follow probably isn’t want they had in mind…


  28. Annemarie on December 12th, 2008 6:49 pm

    Sigh. I’m there. I got talked into it. One more excuse to not actually “work.”


  29. Y on December 12th, 2008 6:57 pm

    So addicted! Even if I haven’t tweeted lately. 😉


  30. Amy on December 12th, 2008 7:14 pm

  31. Lauren (GeekCheek/BlondeSheep) on December 12th, 2008 7:43 pm

  32. Rayanna on December 12th, 2008 7:59 pm

    My tweets are pretty mundane but here ya go:

  35. Amanda on December 12th, 2008 8:50 pm

    My friends make fun of my twittering constantly. It’s truly a sickness.


  36. littlebit on December 12th, 2008 9:16 pm

    just set it up. we’ll see how this goes.


  37. Sus on December 12th, 2008 9:26 pm

    I use Twitter! Thoroughly addicted. I’m @susie130. Been following you for a while. 🙂

  38. Melissa on December 12th, 2008 10:24 pm

    On a scale of 1 to Facebook I’d place my addiction level at about a 7. I think my addiction will only worsen with time. I already follow the GMMR tweets very closely, though!!


  39. Angie on December 12th, 2008 10:39 pm



    I’m surprised you’re not following Jim from the Office. Altho he just repeats lines from the show so…

  40. Taylor on December 12th, 2008 11:00 pm

    Love Twitter. I’m an addict. Along with Facebook….and anything that is not work….


  41. Louise on December 12th, 2008 11:36 pm

    Recently joined and already addicted.

  42. buyMEacoke,Jim! on December 12th, 2008 11:39 pm

    I’m ashamed of my Twitterdiction–and also that I can’t rightly “explain” why I am hooked! The SMS feature is my fav right now…


  43. Mike on December 12th, 2008 11:58 pm

    Love me some twitter


  44. Patty on December 13th, 2008 12:01 am

    Oh, you and Dan got me all addicted! Shame on you (bu tnot really!)

  47. bertas on December 13th, 2008 3:47 am

    Horribly addictive I agree!


  48. jenn on December 13th, 2008 3:56 am

  49. Vanfan14/Carly on December 13th, 2008 12:26 pm

    I haven’t updated it since really, nobody cares what I’m doing, but i’m @carlyfrankel I guess. :o)

  50. SciFiChick on December 15th, 2008 6:07 pm

  51. angiep213 on December 25th, 2008 9:18 pm
