You know your Twitter stream is mostly comprised of erotica writers when...

  • You notice a significant number of tweets can easily be taken out of context, misconstrued, and misinterpreted as something really dirty...then realize they don't have to be taken out of context, misconstrued, or misinterpreted.
  • The "sexy pictures" folder on your hard drive is expanding faster than the Wal-mart empire, and 95% of the images are the result of right click/save acquisitions from Twitter.
  • A mention of writing in public is followed by giggling, snickering, and comments of "if only the people around you knew..."
  • You click on tweeted links to blogs, fully expecting the "adult content" warning from Blogger.
  • A day without at least 25 instances of "NSFW" in your Twitter feed is like a day without sunshine.
  • You pretty much assume any image, link, or video in a tweet is NSFW, and if someone actually labels it as such, it must be really good.
  • You can't remember the last time you clicked on a tumblr page that didn't, at some point, feature a .gif from a porno or a sex scene.
  • Comments about BDSM, sexual positions, the Kama Sutra, and menage are more commonplace than political commentary, pop culture references, or mundane daily life discussions.
  • The most mundane tweets about using common household objects require additional tweets to clarify the objects were used for the purposes their manufacturers intended.
  • When you see things like "fans self", "it's getting hot in here", and "OMG I need a cold shower", it's less likely to be in reference to watching a steamy scene in a movie and more likely to be accompanied with the hashtag #amwriting.
What do you think, loyal blog minions? What other indicators are there that your Twitter stream is mostly comprised of erotica writers?


  1. * You almost get your husband fired when you accidentally send him a tumblr link instead of the pithy political comment you THOUGHT you were cutting and pasting! (Alas--true!)

    * If you spend more than fifteen minutes without looking at a naked man, you start shaking with withdrawal symptoms.

    * You shield your children's eyes from your twitstream, because they can read as fast as you can!

    * You can't wait to tell your tweeples you're having a bad day, because you never know who's got the hookup on a good link!

    * You're actually GLAD celebrities can't really see whose talking to you, because you don't want to scare Mr. Ackles or Mr. Levi off... (even while you're imagining them on... each other!)

  2. *taking a deep happy breath*

    God, it's so great that I'm not alone out here by my line... that one I'm constantly crossing. ;)
