Everyone seems to be jumping on the Twitter bandwagon lately (including Shaq, Ashton Kutcher, Lance Armstrong and Britney Spears) and it’s definitely a great way to keep in touch with friends and family, but can you ever love Twitter too much?

Here are five signs that you might be a little too addicted to Twitter:

  • You’ve created a Twitter account for your dog, like Ridley and Vivj.
  • You’ve created a Twitter account so that you can impersonate a fictitious TV personality, like Borat and Roger_Sterling.
  • You’ve created a Twitter account so that you can remember to water your plants.
  • You refuse to buy from companies that don’t have a Twitter account, because Zappos, Starbucks and Comcast just ‘get’ you.
  • The first thing you do after reading this post is tweet a link to it.
  • (Bonus points if you arrived here from a link in a tweet.)

Have any other suggestions for signs you might be addicted to Twitter? Post them in the comments below and help others on their path to recovery.

…It’s TGI Friday: Moola?

What if you could make real money from your online gaming addiction?

What if you could make that money without ever risking any of your own?

Moola, a “massively multiplayer rewards game”, wants to do just that, and will be opening its site (currently in beta) to the masses by the end of today.

(If you’d like to get in, and the site is still not live, click HERE for an invite.)

So how does it work?

Moola WinningsWhen you first join the site, Moola gives you a penny. You then play a game against another player, and you both wager that penny. Before the game starts, you have to watch an ad, and then the winner of the game receives both player’s pennies. Betting continues at higher and higher dollar amounts until you decide to either cash out, or you go broke and have to start all over again. Any time you loose all of your money, Moola gives you another penny and you start all over again.

Since you double up each time you play, if you can win 30 times in a row, you’d walk away with $10.7 million, but considering the fact that both players would be risking $5.35 million (you can cash out at any time), the chances of that ever happening are slim to none.

Regardless, the highest cash out so far has been in the $5,500 range, so there is some serious cash to be made if you play the games right. Plus, when the site goes live, there will be a steam of new players, meaning the pace of play is going to pick up dramatically.

Sound like a deal?

Then head on over and try it out, because other player’s Moola isn’t going to wait around forever.
