Twitter- What Are You Doing?
None of your goddamn business! I really tried to keep from finding out what Twitter was. I knew it was some sort of social network, but that was it. Then a friend called me and asked me if I ‘twittered’. I resisted the urge to hang up, I resisted the urge to drive over to his house to see if he traded in his pickup for a powder blue Miata. (guys just shouldn’t drive Miatas) I simply asked, “What”?
He explained what Twitter was. I remain unimpressed. Why do people think that other people are interested in every second of their lives? In essence, Twitter is a platform that connects voyeurs with exhibitionists. Really sad exhibitionists. People that want to share with the world what TV show they’re watching, or that they’re walking their dog.
Aren’t there other avenues to express mediocrity? Are people really interested in the boring minutiae of other people’s lives? Or are they simply so stone-bored themselves that any alternative to their sad lives is welcomed? Twitter is just creepy. Don’t ask me to ‘Twitter’, I might just punch you for being nosy, ya freak.
