For people like me who were raised to believe that being shamelessly self-absorbed is a bad thing, we finally have a site. For Twitter (many self-important types’ new platform of choice). Maybe.
It’s called Tweeting Too Hard. The concept is simple. You submit and vote for the most blatantly self-absorbed tweets that you see on Twitter. The most popular recent tweets get voted to the top. Like the million of other web sites that offer this sort of voting feature, you can also sort by “newly added,” “randoms,” and “today’s top.”
The site, created by this groups of four guys, has also done some fun details right. There’s the “I Am Very Important” badge that appears next to the number one story. There’s the ironic pun for the sharing feature — “Share this morsel of twisdom.” There’s the purposefully shameless plug at the top of the page, asking you to tweet about Tweeting Too Hard.
Hopefully, this site will encourage Twitter’s millions of users to be less annoying about the sorts of things they decide to share. Hopefully, I will never appear on this site.
