Maybe You’re Addicted to Twitter

May 6, 2022

If you sometimes wonder whether you’re just a little too dependent on Twitter, then this list should help clear your doubt.

You’re blocked by at least 20 people. 

The more you use Twitter, the more likely you are to say something that someone considers stupid. So, if you scroll through the app and encounter at least one “you’ve been blocked by this account”, then you use the app too much. 

You’ve blocked at least 20 people.

Since Twitter allows anyone to say almost anything, you’ve probably come across tweets that made you block accounts. It’s fine. We’ve all been there.

It’s the first app you use when you wake up 

You read it like the newspaper and that’s why it’s the first thing you check when you wake up in the morning. You want to get caught up on all the things that happened while you slept. 

You find yourself using Twitter phrases like “He do usually lost?” “Kiki Mordi no go fok?” and “Ayomide rise, don’t waste my money” in real life. 

People who don’t use Twitter as often don’t understand what you’re saying. You may try to explain to your friend what KMNGF means, but they won’t get it. The jokes fly over their heads, and sometimes, they assume you don’t know English. 

You’ve patronised at least five Twitter vendors 

You choose Twitter vendors because you know you have enough street cred to drag them if they do rubbish. You may have dragged one or two, but trust us, you’ll still drag a few more. 

You save at least five memes a day 

Memes are beginning to take up almost all the space in your gallery. You can save yourself stress and visit our meme website

You’ve been the Twitter main character before 

Every day on Twitter, there’s a main character everyone focuses their energy either on fighting or defending. Use Twitter long enough, and you’d find yourself as the main character one day. 

You’ve seen your tweet on Instagram 

Have you really made it if someone hasn’t taken a screenshot of your tweet to post on Twitter? That’s how you separate the addicts from the regular users. Twitter addicts are hilarious. 

You’re reading this article from Twitter 

Someone probably shared the tweet with you, or you saw it on your tl. You never bother visiting our website directly because you already see all our tweets. 

You’ve dated someone you met on Twitter

Stayed on the app long enough to find love? Both of you might still be together, or it might have scattered. Either way, you both #MetonTwitter.
