Retweeted by Naima Cochrane @neosouldude I just think you have to remember twitter’s still a conversation - I just need a little context to understand you, that’s all. @neosouldude I’d never heard of it, but now that you *explained* instead of just tweeting me a blurry picture, I’ll look into it! Lol @neosouldude I mean the tweets you specifically send to me or tag me in @neosouldude Like I LITERALLY usually don’t know what you’re trying to show me, tell me, share, etc because you offer no context @neosouldude No argument; nothing to argue about. I’m just never able to follow your tweets. @neosouldude Actually, nevermind. your tweets are almost always unrelated to whatever you’re replying to @neosouldude What is this very very blurry thing that seems unrelated to my tweet? @Fatassery YUUUUUP @ItsJustKent We live in the same city and absolutely not.
