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!

    I dont blame you one bit and it is a good thing you or your mom don’t see most of what is going on out there on facebook. There are many Sarah Palin groups but sadly your mother and you would be ashamed and embarassed by the things that are being said,not about your mother but because so many want her as our next president,there are Sarah Supporters attacking each other. It is past time I believe for people to move on,delete these groups which have only become an embarassement and instead,Pray for our nation show love to our neighbor. Whatever Gods Will is,it is not ours that come to pass but his. Pray for the Palin family,pray for our nation and ACCEPT that Sarah follows what the Lord leads her to do!!!

    Those comments are vile!! Holy cow, I’ve never seen so many hateful words in one place and all for a respectable young woman like yourself. Kudos to Ms. Malkin for shedding light on liberals’ hypocrisy and those awful comments–it’s so sad to see that kind of hate speech being tolerated like that! I’d personally love to see you on Twitter, but I get it: why give losers even more chances to undeservedly bring you down? Keep up all your good work, be a great mom and daughter, and may you continue receiving wonderful things.

    You are smart to avoid all the negativity, Bristol. There are lots of other folks out here who care about you and respect you and your family. I can’t believe how some people are still carrying on. Seriously…like do they even KNOW you or your family? How stupid.

    I don’t blame you, Bristol. Besides, I’ve heard from a friend of mine at work that if you have a Twitter account, you have to keep updating it like several times a day; it’s not like Facebook where you can update it anytime you want. Just thought I’d give you a little tip. ;)

    I have to agree with Regan Mies, if they are wasting time talking about you, then YES you have definitely already won. I don’t understand how anyone thinks that they the so called tolerant group can trash and bash someone they don’t know. It would be different if you had went and killed someone or assaulted someone, then maybe you could say that you deserved it, but you did nothing but TRY to live your life. Shame on them for thinking they are so much better. It’s alright though it will always come back and bite them in the butt later. Sucks to be them is all I can say.

    Bristol, just know that if you ever need help or defense, many of us unknown to you have your back. The 1% will always throw barbs because they live in fear. Stand tall and dish it right back at ‘em!

    You don’t have to explain anything to normal people we all see what has been done to you and your family by all the open (hating) minded left. Just take care of that Child teach him right like we know you will to love and fear(respect) the lord. May the peace of our lord by with you and yours forever and ever amen.

    I was glad to see your update, I would have been very disappointed in Michelle if that were not the case. You are wise to take control of what you allow in your life, there are sooooooo many good things to fill your time. Love you Bristol your future is bright.

    I don’t blame you one bit, Bristol. Probably the only thing you’re missing on Twitter is knowing for certain that you live rent-free in so many of these vile people’s heads. Your blog is wonderful and you do so many amazing things in spite of the crap that you encounter. Keep doing what you’re doing and we’ll keep the Twitter sharks at bay :)
