@ Facebook and Twitter.

Dear Facebook and Twitter,

You are not each other. You are two entirely separate entities and therefore should come up with your own original ideas.


I mean, what the hell? Twitter is the ultimate rip off in my opinion. All they did was say, "Hey. We like how on Facebook you can post status updates, but all that other stuff sucks. Let's make our own website where you only publish status updates. And let's call it Twitter."

I refuse to use Twitter. I tried it for about it a week to see what the fuss was about, but I just didn't get it. You literally have to be on Twitter all the time to see what your friends or celebrities are tweeting about (@THE_REAL_SHAQ). What if someone tweeted something at you in the morning, but you didn't check your Twitter until the afternoon? And what if it was super important? Although, with that logic, it would make more sense that they would just call you if it was so important.

Also, how special do you really think you are that you think your friends want to know every single thing that is going on in your life? I don't need to know that Bobby decided today to go get a Hawaiian shaved ice in Venice. I honestly don't care. Now, if Bobby was bringing me one as well, then it would be a completely different story. But seriously, we are not interesting enough people to think that other people want to know our strong opinions or what it is we are doing every day. Tweets are not going to change other people's opinions.

Now, some of you may think this post is a tad hypocritical. Obviously, I am blogging and therefore think that my opinion is important enough to publish to the interwebs (@RatherRed). And you might say that Twitter is just a form of blogging, and I believe it is called microblogging. Whatever. It is what it is (@DomiHO).

I don't think my opinion is any more important or correct that anyone else's. I just haven't posted on here in awhile and thought it was about time since Best Friend has been doing it (@BestFriend) and this little rant about Twitter was the first thing that popped in my head.

I'm living in Seal Beach now. By myself. And I'm perpetually bored. So if you have nothing to do, call or text me and come hang out at the beach house (@Everyone).
