Digital Marketing and Social Media Strategy

Are you suffering from Tweetnesia?

Laura (AKA Pistachio) and I just experienced something I think you Twitter users will appreciate. I had sent her a direct message (DM) earlier about something. She replied later, but I wasn’t sure what it was in reference to specifically. I tend to Twitter quite a bit, so I can easily forget about a particular tweet. With the 140 character limitation a reply (public or private) can often not include what it was in reference too due to space. So confusion sets in.

Pistachio coined it perfectly: Tweetnesia. It’s a form of Twitter induced amnesia which can set in seconds after you hit the update button.

Has this every happened to you? Perhaps Jeff Sass needs to incorporate this syndrome on his blog, Social Networking Rehab.

  • Dave, I would DM this comment to you via Twitter, but then I might forget what it was about, which would make me feel like a Twit! Thanks for bringing this serious condition to our attention (or lack of atttention, as the case may be). I will most certainly alert the staff at the INVITATIONS social networking recovery facility to add Tweetnesia to the growing list of Twitter induced ailments. Hope you have good insurance!

  • Hey Jeff: I’m glad you can help find a cure. I knew you would be the person to help put a stop to this terrible ailment.

    Perhaps we should organize a marathon to find a cure?
