Okay, I’m a pretty hip youngster if I do say so myself. I rock fly-ass high top Reeboks on the reg, and otherwise remain well-versed in the fads of my generation. However, there’s one thing I just don’t get.
What the hell is Twitter?
Seriously, can anyone tell me?
Like, really tell me. I mean in terms that I can understand; I get that it’s a social networking website.
But why? Why is it there? Why is it in existence?
Because as far as I can tell, the fact that the concept around it wasn’t given up on by the person who conceived of it before they were done creating it, and the fact that once they did it actually took off, is rather suspect.
I mean I get how like politicians and news reporters and anchors use it. But come on, let’s get real, people. That’s the only real practical use for it, and we all know that they could literally use Facebook for the same exact fucking thing. But that’s not even the worst part.
The worst part is that… THEY DO! Everything anyone worth listening to puts up on Twitter, they also post as a status on Facebook! But they still ask people watching their shows to “tweet” them.
As though they’re trying to open up another avenue for people other than Facebook users to contact them by using Twitter as well. Because we all know that Twitter users never also have a Facebook. It’s not like Twitter and Facebook appeal to the exact same demographic of people.
I say thank God these news anchors use Twitter. Otherwise how would all the tween girls throughout America whose parents blocked their Facebook account (after some not-so-flattering pictures came out) contact Piers Morgan regarding his “thought provoking” interviews with people whose only fans are tweens?
And for that, I say God bless Twitter.
