Best Australian Blogs 2013 No 14: Stories 3 Twitter Bird Tales



“I thought we had already talked about the Twitter Birds” said Sprite
“Well yes, but you have not discussed the main storylines concerning the Tweet Family and the Psych-Owl-Ogist in sufficient depth” replied P’est Pour Parfait, the Perfectionist Poodle, who had arrived to make a final inspection of Sprite’s Site entry in the Australian Writers’ Centre Best Australian Blogs 2013 competition


The Tweet Family stories began with the marriage of Tweet and Retweet in August 2011

In February 2012 Retweet laid a blue egg and a pink egg and in March 2012 the tweetlets, Tweetil and Tweetelle, hatched.


By late March the tweetlets were demonstrating characteristics often
associated with giftedness in early childhood and the story described parenting
issues and differences of opinion with Great Aunt Hashtag
Then came a series of tales about asynchronous development as the Tweet family commenced Flight School

The Psych-Owl-Ogist was consulted and we learned about characteristics of giftedness and social/emotional aspects

Next came the discussions involved in finding the right flock for the tweetlets
and the decision to continue with Nest Ed and the challenges associated with that choice
“And talking about Twitter Birds reminds me to tell you I would like to see you put a Twitter button and a Facebook button in the sidebar of the blog” said Parfait.
