Why I Tweet

I was introduced to Twitter by my best friend Alexander Yoo . I joined to keep in contact with him since I live 90 minutes north of Los Angeles where he lives. I followed others ze was following because I knew most of them at least peripherally. It gave me a social life of some sort and a sense of connection, which is hard to come by when you’re queer and live in a small town. Over time I met other people and have come to value their conversation. I enjoy interacting with them, supporting them and being supported by them. It’s that sense of community and the ease of use that keeps me on twitter, not vanity or self-importance. I really don’t care what the trendy or famous do or do not do, I’m here for my friends.
