Please don’t Qwit me.


Have you ever been dumped without any warning at all? Without even a hint as to what you did or said to make this person not like you anymore? I have. Many times.

Me: Butbutbut… please just tell me what I did!

Dumper: Morgan, it’s over. Just let it be.

Me: We had so many good times! Remember that one time I made you LOL IRL? I can be funny, see? Just please give me another chance… I can be better for you, I promise!

Dumper: *silence*


I’m actually not referring to past boyfriends. This pathetic scenario actually plays out for me each and every morning when I check my email. It’s the same thing every time…

I have a new message waiting for me. I go back and forth trying to decide whether to read it or not because I already know how it’s going to end and it’s not going to be pretty. Curiosity always wins the battle. I hold my breath. I read the message. It has a list of  names. I scan through them and am baffled. What? My super deep and exciting thoughts about pregnancy puking, rude co-workers and Starbucks purchases aren’t exciting enough for these people!?

And then I may or may not shed a tear and go write in my diary. With glitter gel pens.

So for those of you who haven’t yet been lovingly kissed atop the head by Satan himself, let me introduce you to Qwitter. It’s a sweet little program that finds out who unfollows you on Twitter and promptly tells you about it FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. I know, isn’t that a great way to start the day? Finding out who would rather read the things John Mayer blabs about than your dull stuff? It’s way better than Wheaties!

I know it’s really not that big of a deal, considering I know about 10% of my Twitter followers in person, but STILL. sads.

  1. …I am signing up for it now, thanks to you LOL. I didn’t know such a thing existed, and of course I want to know all the people who are unfollowing so I can ask them WHYY! :D haha just kidding. I’m just morbidly curious!

  2. I usually don’t even really recognize if people unfollow me on Twitter or not because I barely even visit the website itself – I use TweetDeck all the time.

    Those people suck anyways – they don’t know what they are missing out! :)

  3. Oh man, I don’t know if I’d want to know about all the people who unfollow me. I prefer to pretend that everyone loves me. :)

  4. OMG I’m such a glutton for punishment, I so just joined! (And I unfollowed a bunch of people today too… hope they don’t have this! NOT YOU THOUGH I SWEAR!) :)

  5. I won’t qwit you! I signed up for that awhile ago, fortunately I don’t have tons of followers, so I don’t get the email that often and it’s usually one of those spam tweeters that qwit me

  6. Oh, thank goodness! I thought I was the only person who fretted over each unfollower and what I might have posted that drove them to leaving. My poison is Goodbye Buddy, though- getting regular e-mail updates would make me even more neurotic!

  7. I’m wondering if Qwitter doesn’t work on protected tweets b/c I signed up for this and I KNOW that I’ve lost followers but I’ve never been notified by them! Boo. I sort of want the sads too lol!

  8. If this makes you feel any better about your Qwitters, I am so excited you finally have email subscriptions! That’s new right? I feel like I’ve checked before. Anywho, I’m an email-only subscribing kind of girl and I’d totally forget to check your blog without it, even though I love it. Congrats on your second! I first found your blog when I was pregnant with my first, born in Oct ’08. I’m now due with my second this November and thank goodness you’re now pregnant too, because I’m not really crafty, and I need your crazy wittiness and complaining about all things baby to laugh at!! happy pregnancy!

  9. Thanks for sharing this. I’ve been wondering for a while if there was a service like this, but haven’t had the time to sit down and search it out. I’m a little too excited to find out who doesn’t like me anymore. How sad is that?

  10. I think you are hilarious! I hope to have such a cute family and as sharp of a wit as you do in a few years! You inspire me!
