The fast growing popularity of Twitter, is very interesting to me. I have recently created an account, and have to admit that I kind of like it. I like it because I can get updates on my favorite teams, favorite journalists, etc. However, it is CRAZY that people are getting on Twitter to update where they are at different times of the day, #whocares.
Many people will have over fifteen updates per day about where they are. Whether that be a restaurant, home, bar, street, or wherever. Why would you want other people to know where you are, when you’re going to be there, and why you are there? Are people becoming so infatuated with themselves that they really think people care if they are eating a sandwich at 1pm at John Doe’s pub? Maybe some people do care, but are people so bored that they are becoming more interested in how other people live their life, rather than how live their own? I like the idea of Twitter, I like how you can connect with people around the world that you may never meet, but their is a line that should not be crossed, and that’s caring what people you do not know are doing, at every second of the day.
By the way, you can follow me @griffingatewood and I will be at the dining halls around 4pm. #sarcasm
