Hey, I know you from Twitter.
Hi! Cool. I love Twitter. It’s my favorite bar.
This page exists because of things worth explaining. And because outside of Twitter I can’t do brevity.
My name is Havi. I’m @havi.
Pronounce that as if you were British and think my name was Harvey. Excellent. There is an entire page about me.
How I use Twitter.
Twitter is my bar. My local. My (global) neighborhood cafe.
I’m there to hang out. To play, complain, goof off, sometimes with you.
Despite people thinking I’m some sort of motivational expert, that’s
the most depressing thing in the entire world not what I’m like. And definitely not at the bar.
I don’t tell people what to do or how to be. There will be no inspirational quotes.
Sometimes I will say highly inappropriate things. Sometimes I will make terrible puns. Sometimes both at the same time.
I’ll talk to pretty much anyone.
At the same time, I don’t love to flood the stream. So if I don’t respond to something, it’s not because I’m a snob or because the thing you said wasn’t interesting. Just the flow of the bar at that given time.
I get asked to recommend stuff a lot, and that’s not something I can do.
I don’t promote things. If I do post a link or non-ironically recommend something, it’s because I genuinely like it.
No affiliate things, no favors-for-a-friend.
Sometimes I link to posts I’ve written. I don’t use Twitter to promote my products or services. That’s because it’s my local pub and I go there to hang out.
This always makes me think of Olympia Dukakis in Moonstruck saying “don’t shit where you eat.” That’s decent advice in most cases.
What I write about.
- My duck’s name is Selma.
- I think kazoos are the best.
- I sponsor a local roller derby team. GUNS N ROLLERS!
- I do not speak Portuguese, even though people think I do because a bunch of stuff I’ve written has been translated into Portuguese. Oh lovely people who write to me in Portuguese: I honestly have no idea what you just said. But hi!
- However, I’m fluent in both German and Hebrew.
