Why I’m Not on Twitter

I’m not on Twitter, but my name is definitely mentioned in Tweets.  For those of you who have read the comments on posts like “Mr. President, When Should I Expect Your Call?” and “Hail to the Chiefs: Malia and Sasha Obama,” you’re familiar with the hate that is thrown my way.  (You know, bullying in the name of tolerance and all.)

However, someone brought Michelle Malkin’s tweet to my attention tonight. She tweeted that it’s Time for a Bristol Palin HateFest on Twitter.

That, my friends, is why I’m not on Twitter. I love talking to you guys on Facebook and on this blog, but that’s as much of an internet presence as I need now.  For those of you who are on Twitter, please feel free to tweet out my posts and to spread some love for me there.

You can tell I need it!

UPDATE: Yes, I know she was pointing out the Twitter hate. Thanks, Michelle Malkin for pointing out the liberal hypocrisy! I appreciate your work!

    The world has some horrible people in it, no doubt. I for one am proud of you and your whole family. It is hard enough being a single mother, let alone having to put up with disgusting hateful remarks. Just ignore them. They are jealous. :) God Bless you and your little one and your family.

    Seriously? Don’t let this rent space in your head. We don’t know each other and who knows if you’ll even see this, but it popped up on my Facebook so I figured I’d respond. Wierd that they have such strong opinions of you… I doubt any of them know you. If they’re wasting their time talking about you…you’ve already won!

    Nothing but respect for you Bristol

    Awwww…..Bristol honey, I am so sorry. Please know that there are more of us who LOVE and RESPECT you, than feel like the MORON’s who say such hateful things. {{{hugs}}}

    I don’t agree with half your views, I didn’t vote for your mom, nor am I a Republican. But I have RESPECT for you as a human being. You handle every situation head in, but with grace, which is nearly extinct these days. The fact that anyone wants a hatefest of any kind is disgusting and sad. This world needs nicer people and more love. Keep being you Bristol.

    Hey Miss Palin. I just want to first give you a little support from the cheap seats. You are a brave young woman who sticks to her morality. Your mother’s fierceness runs in your veins. My fiancee was a young, single mother who kept her child despite cries to abort. She, like you, never accepted welfare, and is about to complete her graduate degree in psychology.

    I do want to say one thing about Michelle Malkin’s TWITCHY site’s article. Those who don’t follow the link may assume that Mrs. Malkin was directing hatred towards Bristol. That is not true. For the record, Mrs. Malkin was just following in Andrew Breitbart’s footsteps and exposing the hatred and hypocrisy from a certain segment of society.

    I know Bristol gets this, though she has had more than her share of insults thrown her way. There are quite a few conservatives out here (and a few liberals, too) that don’t condone the hatred that has been slung your way.

    You didn’t choose this fight, this fight chose you. Don’t ever hang your head, and don’t ever stop fighting for who and what you believe in.

    Malkin’s site, Twitchy.com, did have that headline, but they chronicled the hate on the left against you. Then they concluded with “Where are the civility police when you need them? Don’t ask Pig Maher’s boy and Obama SuperPAC operator Bill Burton.” So they’re on your side. Still. you sure don’t have to be on Twitter if you don’t want to.
