Seriously, I do. I believe the only reason I even still have an account is to keep in touch with people I like speaking to without asking for numbers, email addresses & the like. Otherwise I’m just ranting or sharing opinions/information about things I encounter…much like I do here.
You see, it wasn’t always like this for me. I remember when it wasn’t so popular. Twitter was a great way to quickly share information or read up on your favorite celebs or whatever goings on that people had direct access to that others didn’t. I dug the concept greatly…especially because I hated Facebook. Fuck Facebook. However in the past few years, Twitter for me has turned into Facebook 2.0. How, you ask? Oh, I’ll tell you how…
I’m a person who believes wholeheartedly in using common sense/logic and seeing shit from more than one angle. I hate…I repeat, hate narcissistic complexes, personalities or whatever the fuck you want to label them. That’s the main reason I left Facebook. Everyone wants attention. They want to be known. They want to be popular. It started with Facebook friend counts. Whoever had a massive amount of Facebook friends obviously had a shining personality and their bullshit was worth reading, right? Eh, not so much.
With Twitter, it’s no different. Follower count overshadows content & people are fooled into thinking because certain people they follow are following someone that their thoughts must be top notch. I mean that only makes sense, right? Wrong. 80% of the time, it’s superficial. Attractive, nice body, someone a celeb they like follows/retweets…the list goes on. I absolutely hate it.
I come across a few hidden gems other people are unaware of randomly & I like interacting with them. Follower count isn’t important to me, though I have a decent amount. I like reading their shit…as it should be. Not to say that doesn’t go for other people’s reasons as well but it’s usually not the case. There’s no level of humble anymore. I say this because, let’s say you get into an argument with someone with 3,000 followers and you have 200. What’s the first thing they’ll bring up to imply they’re better than you? Don’t worry…I’ll wait.
I have too short of a temper. I would probably hurt someone really bad if I wasn’t a sensible person and would rather rely on wits. That’s mainly why Twitter is not for me. The narcissism can & will get you fucked up when it comes to the wrong person. Not referring to myself, but the numerous WorldStar, Vine & YouTube videos speak for themselves.
So yes, I absolutely hate Twitter due to the narcissism. You put these people on a pedestal that talk about themselves entirely too much…all day long. There’s chicks that post a picture everyday with their tits out. As much as I like titties, I don’t want to see the same ones everyday unless we’re dating or fucking. You’re boring me & eventually becoming unattractive. Find substance & utilize it.
In short…fuck what Twitter has become. I don’t wanna hear the “if you use it right..” or “it’s great for networking” bullshit either. That’s only for cliques that a majority of people aren’t associated with. I’m here for the regular humble people with great ideas & opinions. You’re my clique.
That’s it man. Get back to whatever you were doing & stop allowing the mental retardation to happen. I’m done ranting here.
