Twitter makes people jealous, becomes support group during SXSW
If you were on Twitter this week, and couldn’t figure out how to block all SXSW tweets, you might have felt like the only person who wasn’t in Austin. But if you had sifted through the heaps of “These lines are ridiculous,” “My phone’s almost dead” and “Heck yeah free sunglasses and/or breakfast tacos” tweets, you would find that you were not alone in your loneliness.
Here are our 20 favorite tweets from people who weren’t at South by Southwest this year.
“I’m not going to SXSW” is the new “I have a job and can’t justify being inebriated during the workday”

I’ll be hosting the panel “Drinking Alone in the Dark While All Your Cooler Friends Are Out of Town or Something”#nxne

I thought I’d be more disappointed about not going to SXSW, but I really only miss the BBQ.

Update: I’m still not at #sxswi. But, I had authentic Mexican food, tons of margaritas and played on my phone this weekend.

Just knowing Austin is having an affair with someone else right now pains me. #notatSXSW

I’m weirdly okay with not going to #sxsw this year. I can almost hear the clown music all the way across the pond.

I am already so SICK of reading all those tweets about #sxsw. Twitter, we need to be able to filter out keywords!!

Since I’m not at #sxsw I think I need to disconnect from FB, Twitter, and Foursquare this wk. %*#@ is blowing up.

Okay, as of tonight I’m officially jealous/sick of #sxsw tweets. Mostly jealous. Someday…

While I’m not at #sxswi this year, I have an awesome panel idea for 2013.

I’m still in denial that I’m unable to geek out at SXSW this weekend #SUCKS

I’m so bummed I’m not going to #SXSW that I may have to cry in my coffee. Ugh.

Wahhh wish I was able to go to #sxsw. Once again, being an adult sucks sometimes. Plus, just need to move south finally!
