If you don’t know the world of Anon Twitter, you are truly missing out!
I created my anon Twitter in 2012. This was a pretty big turning point in my life. I had just graduated college, moved to a new city for my boyfriend (where we lived apart, might I add), and was on my own for the first time.
It was a pretty big change for me. Living in a new city without any friends felt very lonely. I don’t really remember what made me choose to create an anon account, but I did. And I’m so glad for it!
A Place To Vent
Being an introvert and people-pleaser, I rarely ever express my feelings. My thoughts bubble up inside of me. Anon Twitter has allowed me to just let it flow. It feels great!
Aside from just venting about petty frustrations, I was able to be very transparent about my thoughts. When I was feeling upset, lonely, and depressed, I turned to Twitter.
I “met” some incredible people on there. I made some great friends and felt like I really belonged.
There were some accounts I had a nice relationship with but they disappeared from the scene. I don’t know who they are but I think about them sometimes, and hope they’re living a great life.
I Took A Hiatus
For reasons I can’t really remember, I stopped using my anon Twitter. In fact, I think it may have been during the time where I started a new job. At this new job, I made lots of friends and felt I could really connect with a group of people.
While I still wasn’t completely transparent with them about my life, I did feel as though I could speak with them about my life problems.
I kind of wish I didn’t take a hiatus, but at the time, I just didn’t need it. (Although, during certain periods, I probably did).
I Came Back
Around this time last year, I decided to restart blogging and thought it would be a great idea to begin my anon account again! I’m so glad I did.
Again, I’m living in a new place with very few friends. (And I met an amazing man here who I get to call my husband starting this October).
But, I have a community of amazing people on Twitter that I call my friends. I love that I’m able to vent a little bit, connect with people going through the same things I am, and feel a sense of belonging.
So Much Appreciation
People might think it’s weird having an anon Twitter. And honestly, I don’t tell anyone that I have one (that clearly defeats the purpose). But I appreciate this community so much. I love them and I’m grateful for them every single day.
