Ben Walker - The Twitter Song Lyrics


You're no one if you're not on Twitter

And if you aren't there already you've missed it

If you haven't been bookmarked, retweeted and blogged

You might as well not have existed



In the old days it was all about achievements

Collecting all your trophies in a shrine

Then everybody came across the internet

And suddenly you had to be online



A home page was all you really needed

To seem like a success but not a geek

As long as you updated semi-annually

And checked your email once or twice a week



You're no one if you're not on Twitter...



Technology was moving rather quickly

And the next thing you needed was a blog

With intimate and detailed press releases

And now and then a photo of your dog



More recently the students brought us Facebook

And everybody has a hundred friends

The parties in the photos look amazing

They're not so great but everyone pretends



You're no one if you're not on Twitter...



Now you need to publish every movement

And every single thought to cross your mind

I'm told the Twitterverse is full of rubbish

But most of us are actually quite refined



We validate each other's insecurities

And brag about the gadgets that we've bought

We laugh out loud at every hint of jolliness

And try to self-promote without being caught



You're no one if you're not on Twitter...



I didn't tag this post.
