Here is a dumb joke about one of my favorite colors, Kelly Green. Happy Friday. (Seriously though, who is Kelly????)

HACKED

You guys. My Twitter account has been hacked in the WEIRDEST most ANNOYING way possible. It just follows other people. So whereas I normally follow 350ish accounts, I will look at my page and notice I’m suddenly following 433. Then I look again and it’s up to 680. At one point it was 934. So then I manually unfollow all of these people, reset my password, and all is well for a moment. AND THEN IT ALL HAPPENS AGAIN. And it’s almost IMPOSSIBLE to get in touch with ANYONE at Twitter. And their support website keeps sending me in circles. I’ve done everything you’ve told me to do, Twitter! No it’s NOT getting better!

Ugh. Has this happened to anyone? Does anyone have suggestions as to what to do? It’s also super awkward to keep following and unfollowing the same 300 people. Sorry, 300 strangers. I’VE BEEN HACKED.

Or maybe it’s a sign to quit Twitter, once and for all…

In February of 2011 I wrote a Huffington Post column about FOMO. Now — and I’m telling you this not to brag, but merely to state a fact — I was the first to write about FOMO, and FOMO as we now know it, on the internet. Bold claim, but it’s true. Yes, even before Caterina Fake, who is sometimes credited for coining FOMO — I was there first. And I’m only now making a stink about it because yesterday some dudes sold a pilot about FOMO. And that made me annoyed. Because I was the first to really usher the idea into the public consciousness, and then, besides a few interviews (here’s one with Tufts Daily), I never really maintained FOMO as part of my “thing” and now FOMO is everywhere. (So now I have FOMO on not capitalizing on FOMO? This is getting confusing.) So maybe I missed my chance, but luckily I did manage to make a Twitter account way back when, even though I never really did anything with it.
Well, now I’m doing something with it. I’m going to just start tweeting dumb things about FOMO, because why not. BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, RIGHT? I can’t promise anything brilliant, but I can promise it will be a different voice from my personal tweets, and it will be about who has and who doesn’t have FOMO (pretty much everyone has it except for cats, because cats don’t give a shit). If you like what you read, please RT and spread the word, even though FOMO is now so mainstream it’s pretty much no longer interesting. Look, really you should just feel free to give me, Annie Stamell aka Stamos, credit for giving you a name for your social media-related anxiety issues. Is that so much to ask!?!
