Local Woman Learns of Divorce Via Twitter

She sips her Starbucks while half-heartedly checking her blackberry. Derek was happily married for two years when her husband, Michael Derek dropped the bombshell that he wanted a divorce, sending shrapnel into Marlene’s heart.

“It’s not so much what he said, as how he said it,” she explained, pulling out her blackberry once again and handing it to me. Michael and Marlene both got Twitter accounts last spring. This latest internet phenomena allows members to update their status at frequent intervals so that “friends and family” always know what you’re up to.

Some examples: “JERRY just had coffee. MARLA can’t stand taking the bus. SUSAN cried all night. JERRY coffee again – I’m totes addicted! :P

The Dereks thought this would be a fun way to keep in touch throughout the day, but soon it became clear that Michael was more committed to “twittering” than Marlene. “It got to the point where he was updating during dates, during dinners, at special events — he posted the song lyrics that were stuck in his head at our son’s briss!” Now Marlene is reeling from Michael’s recent update: “MICHAEL is leaving Marlene.” “I got it while I was at work. When I came home, all his stuff was gone.”

Now all that remains of Marlene’s marriage? Twitter updates from her ex: “MICHAEL is Thanks for letting me crash on your couch Jim.”
