Everyone hates a cheater, but sometimes it feels so good……. wait, let me explain.
I love you Twitter, but there’s someone else.
I’m absolutely head over heels in love with Twitter, I’m not really a Facebook kind of girl. I mean, I dabble from time to time but my first love is Twitter. I have Twitter friends, Twitter family, and Twitter crushes, but lately none of that has been lighting my fire. Just like your first love telling you he “met someone else,” the love grows cold. I know I’m being a bit dramatic, but I have a point.
I’ve had so much going on in the “real world” that I haven’t been interested in checking the pulse of Twitter. Like many people, I get most of my news from Twitter. I follow newspapers and get the latest hot topics from the Twitterverse. There’s nothing like sitting down to a hashtag party to analyze the couture foolishness of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Redefining the Traditional Ways of Living
Every day, my grandfather used to take the morning and evening paper. It seems so incredible to think about two issues of the daily paper. I remember him sitting in his chair, after work, with the paper spread out on his lap while watching the news on TV. That was about a high-tech as it got for him. Fast forward twenty years, and I watch TV, hold court on Twitter, surf the net on my phone, all while trying to hold an intelligent conversation with my honey. My grandfather would think all this online interaction a bunch of nonsense….but is it? People are falling in love online, hell they even cheat online. Modern day empires rise and fall online (Justin Bieber anyone?), More and more, we’re hearing how important it is to be connected and have a kick-ass social media foot print. As much as I love social media, it’s sometimes so damn overwhelming.
The Rules Keep Changing Who’s Keeping Score?
Let Fast Company tell it, none of us are really master’s of social media anyway. Don’t tell all the people who’ve spent thousands on online social media degrees. For all the experts who would make you think you’re a Neanderthal if you don’t know what Twitter’s new apps mean for developers, suck it! No really, suck it. Because sometimes we just want to go see a movie and not tell the world about it on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, yadda yadda. (I do have a crush on Pinterest though, but don’t tell anyone.)
