As many of you may have NOT noticed, I've given up Twitter. During my trip, I decided NOT to check it, or check up on anything really. I didn't open my Google Reader the WHOLE time. It was pretty liberating.
When we got to Florida, I ended up checking back in to Social Media, all except one...Twitter ::shudders:: ;)
I noticed that I felt so much better NOT knowing what people are doing every second of the day. NOT knowing what so 'n so isn't getting,or IS getting, or wanting, or complaining about, or hating, etc etc etc. I don't know why we love to hear people's complains so much, we thrive off of it. It's pretty sadistic and I'm just not a fan.
I love the idea of sharing your life with other people, I'm all for that! But there's something distinctly different between Twitter and everything else. I'm pretty sure not everyone has a bad relationship with Twitter, and that's amazing if you don't. I just felt like the clique's, the complaints, and the overall negativity from the website wasn't for me.
Maybe your followers are different, maybe you don't read into things like I do, who knows! But to each is their own! :)
