    > Your husband knows what twitter is! (via @Sarah_Stewart )
    and your husband is sick of it 😉

    It was so funny that right after I saw this page, I’ve also found a post on popular Japanese community website by a wife who is sick of her husband keep twittering their private moments.

    I’ve tried all machine translation site (Google, BebelFish, Yahoo! and Excite Japan but none of them seem to work well, so you will have to learn Japanese to read it).

    I’m so addicted, all my time at home I’m on twitter, excluding when I’m sleeping – I’m not that bad!
    I need a phone contract with unlimited texts so I can tweet when I’m out. – They’re expensive though. Wow, its so wierd being able to write with out a 140 character restriction.

    you tweet to make sure that your bathroom breaks are timed with everyone else so that you arrive as a group and don’t miss anything.

    You use the search function for your name to see if people are RT your tweets… !

    You feel a constant need to check ‘twittie’ on your iphone.

    Your @work, Opps. ‘at work’ and start to panic if to much time has passed and you havent ‘logged’ on.

    Your rushing through your day more, quickly getting things done so you have plenty of time left to ‘twitter’

    *You eat lunch, twitter and dont care that your food isnt actually reaching your mouth!

    You take more bathroom breaks just to escape to ‘Twitterland’

    You snuggle up with your iphone @ night.

    After 6 months explaining to my wife she had a problem being sucked in to Facebook and twitter. I simply had enough when she tweet or update while on vacation. I left her and it took her two days to realize I was not coming back. Having a real conversation face to face with a person don’t happen anymore sorry to say.
