Twitter Fiction: Twocial Etiquette

February 27, 2010
“And this is Kunal.”
“Are you on Twitter?”
“Yes, I’m @c00nal.”
“I don’t think I FOLLOW you.”
“I don’t follow you either.”
Kunal frowns as he turns to the Hot Dog stand.
“I think I hurt his ego a bit.”
“You just met!”
“Social boo-boo, telling someone you don’t follow them on Twitter.”
“What rubbish, nobody cares about these things.”
“Some people do. Maybe he’s one of them. Shit, I blew it.”
“Shh, he’s back. Ice-creams? Isn’t that too…I don’t know…something?”
“Ice-cream is cool.”
“Or maybe it’s c00nal.”
“No, this is c00nal.”
He says, holding out a spoon with a bit of ice-cream stuck to it. It’s green, not an appealing shade for food, she thinks.
“Ooh, you got her an ice-cream, c00nal?”
“A bite-sized version.”
He grins.
“A twitterized ice-cream.”
She replies, smiling back as she takes the spoon.
