Social networking sites love them or hate them they have changed the way people interact. People’s lives have become open books to anyone with an internet connection. Friends from kindergarten can find you on Facebook and reconnect over that time you hit them in the head with a building block, college friends who have moved to different cities can stay current in each others lives with out missing a single beat. But for all it’s good this constant connectedness has severely warped the way some of you view friendships. An un-following on twitter now rates up there with the sleeping with a friends significant other, killing their mother, or smudging their pumas. I’m here to remind you that…
IT’S NOT THAT SERIOUS!!!
If you don’t want to read my tweets just un-follow trust me I wont be offended. I know some of you look at it as the end of the world but honestly no one needs to be constantly plugged into their friends. Twitter and Facebook are supposed to be fun they’re supposed to be outlets those of you that have substituted them for “official” means of communication and as a “genuine” expression of friendship have forgotten this fact. A phone call, an email, a text message these are forms of communication with friends. A tweet a status update ehh not so much, so please don’t get offended when a friend chooses to un-follow because you use your twitter account to post “eating a salad, took a dump, at work, and hey @so&So what time is dinner tonight”, and don’t you feel hostage to follow someone who only posts these things or who posts too much for your enjoyment like I said in the title… IT’S ONLY TWITTER.
