Tweeting better stories, episode ten: September 2021

Wanting to find a lighter-hearted way I offer readers this tenth post in a series.

This topical tweet, which appeared at 8.38pm on 18 September, was too tempting to pass up, so I captured it. Apologies for straying into the realms of the known!


The following tweet appeared in my feed on 3 September at 6.35am.

At 6.24am on 4 September the following appeared in my timeline.

Translated, the poem reads thus:

And all the stars of glass
of happiness and of beauty
shone in the dust
of the disordered room
And I dead drunk
and all a blaze of joy
and you drunk alive
naked in my arms.


The following echoing tweets – with the theme of falsity a mirror image of the last tweet – appeared in my timeline at 8.41am on 5 September.

At 8.46pm on 13 September the following two tweets appeared side-by-side in my feed. I love it when I see twinned posts with the same theme. Finding a pair like this is like a flash of lightning.


I saw the following two posts on Facebook at 11.16am on 6 September.

I saw the following humorous tweet at 9.09am on 7 September.

At 9.14am on 9 September I saw this.

I saw the following tweet at 5.13am on 14 September.

At 5.42am on 27 September I saw this tweet in my feed (which I translated online).

There are no rattlesnakes

I'm glad
That here we have not

We have financiers
And others as well
But rattlesnakes
We don't have

Life could be
Even more unpleasant

W.M. Auld

Very saga words

At 6.31pm on 28 September this appeared within my little world.
