Twitter Sucks: At its Downfall?

The Original Angry Bird.

#QuestionsIHateAnswering? Who cares?
Hashtags like this are common viewing on everyone’s favorite microblogging website, Twitter. However, where the hell is this website going?

In 2009, I used to state that I was able to get all of my news from Twitter. I could follow celebs and get the latest info on their careers. They also posted corrections when the entertainment media published false information about them, but this went far beyond just celebrity gossip.

Twitter used to have a focus on current events, and it created a user-generated approach to news media. For example, if a major event took place in the USA or around the world, it became a trending topic, and you could find all kinds of viewpoints from the people of USA and the Earth.

It was easy to keep in touch with your friends, your favorite movie stars, and the day-to-day happenings of life.

That was 2009. Now Twitter is just a bunch of “Jersey Shore” wannabes, who try to sound loud and brash, and the trending topics are nothing more than simple word games beginning with hashtags.


And of course the now corporate-infiltrated “Promoted” topics, where businesses can pay to have their product or information trend.

If you have a sudden urge to talk about 5 Dollar Footlongs, than you are in fucking paradise.

By the way @Nina who wrote "#5DollarFootlongs are not five dollars"

I confess that sometimes this wordplay is entertaining or amusing, but there is no substance. It just feels like people are spitting out cheap unfunny comments as fast as they can, so they get noticed by other users in the trends.

I also confess that I follow @Snooki , but she never has anything to say that you couldn’t hear from that annoying bitch who sits in the back of math class and always shouted for no reason. Thank Goodness I dropped out of school ( : P )

However, there are still some things that have not changed since 2009.

The best people to follow are still.
@Michael Ian Black – He’s the Funniest

Ukrainian-Born Porn Star
@Nikki Benz – She makes you feel like she’s your friend

Pop Singer
@ddLovato – She’s the friendliest.

Also, Tyler the Creator
Why? #IDontUnderStand (Suck that you bastard)

Are you still a fan of Twitter?
Who is your favorite person to follow?
Would you like to be one of those people that gets your tweets published in a book?

PS: Even though Twitter is sometimes frustrating, I won't delete. It's part of culture now. Damn that culture.

PPS: Anyone else notice that Twitter is now 2/3 Brazilian Portuguese?
No entendo portugueso.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to , single women are presented with

"High Tide, Storm Rising" - Skinshape

A new Skinshape LP is on the way as of October 28th! "Nostalgia" promises to delve into the world of motives and motifs. Will Dorey (AKA Skinshape) has described this particular track "High Tide, Storm Rising" as "the main theme song of a movie." And if you have read any of my prior posts, you know I'm a sucker for anything cinematic.  Here's a full look at the Skinshape "Nostalgia" track listing: 01. Theme For Lazarus 02. Better Chances 03. Dreams of Panama 04. Moonlight Walk  05. Albion 06. High Tide, Storm Rising 07. Turn Away 08. Bohanon's Cornucopia 09. Bad Dreams 10. Fish & Chips 11. Dawn I would try to include something about live shows, but the soulful likes of Skinahape simply prefer to record and NOT perform live, which is an interesting choice in today's world.  Once again, "Nostalgia" is out everywhere as of Oct. 28th.
