Prepare to Laugh at My Expense
UPDATE: Order has been restored to Trumpton. It was a tech problem. I am, indeed, one of the 5,000 most influential people in the world on Twitter (but only whisper it in case the Bragging Fairy takes it away again!) Read what follows though, and feel free to mock me. It IS pretty bloody funny.
I hope you find this as funny as I did. I honestly could not write this kind of comic timing. Nobody would believe it.
For reasons I won't go into, for fear of disappearing into Irrelevant Tangent World, I was feeling pretty shoddy about myself. I posted the following declaration:
I am so utterly, utterly cr*p sometimes. *Irons hands to make reparation*In an attempt to cheer myself up, I thought I'd post my Twitter Grader score. Over the months, I'd noticed it sneaking closer to the top 5,000. I'd made a decision to share the news once it crossed into this magical 5k territory. I'd forgotten. At this moment of hand-ironing low self-esteem, however, it felt the perfect 'ta-da' moment to reveal my enviable status. The hope for a jolt in the ego that would make ironing my hands unnecessary was to be short-lived.
Mildly fabulous (improbable) news: am now in top 5,000 on whole of Twitter!
Either Twitter Grader is having technical problems or that one tweet was the most expensive - in influence terms - in the whole history of Twitter. Oh, the shame!! :P
