This (techie?) conversation happened a few hours ago.

I was explaining about how people are (stupidly) comparing Twitter vs Facebook (which TOTALLY CAN'T BE COMPARED BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT THE SAME!!! >_<) to my bro, when suddenly:

Mom: "What is Twitter?"
Me: "It's a microblog."
Mom: "What's a microblog?"
Me: "Do you even know what a blog is?"
Mom: "No xD"
Me: "Wellll... ummm... a blog is like a journal. You write updates about yourself or anything of your interest and the whole world can read it."
Mom: "It's more like a diary, then."
Me: "Not really.. it's more like an online journal..."
Mom: "OK."
Me: "Now, Twitter is a microblog. You understand what micro means, right? So it's basically a very-short form of online journal. You write updates about anything, only in 140 characters. Then people will follow you if your updates are interesting. So it's a matter of how presentable to the world your updates are."


Mom: "What's the difference between Twitter and Youtube?"
Me: ................ OTZ
Me: "Do you even know what Youtube is?"
Mom: "No =P" *innocently*
Me: "Well, the question should've been: 'What is Youtube?' And don't compare it to anything else if you don't know what it is!" >_<

My mom has always been curious whenever she heard all those internet lingo I've been speaking to her or in front of her :P She always asked what is this, what is that, and sometimes her questions were so..... ignorant & illiterate that I didn't even know how to explain!
But thank God, although she's heard of Facebook oh so many times, she would NEVER join Facebook! Actually I forbid her from using Facebook altogether! xD *evil laugh*

Of course I don't mind at all! :D
Thank you, my journal is really just my silly ramblings though *lol*


"There are those relationships that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous..."
~ Carrie Bradshaw (from Sex and the City)
