Twitter - 255 Characters of stupid

Post by YAG » Sun Apr 25, 2021 8:53 pm

Not always, when there is a link to an ACTUAL information source.

But seeing people trashing their client base? Publicly venting, thinking there won't be consequences?

It HAS given me a short list of people to absolutely avoid. :bm3

In other words, there are a lot of twits on twitter.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

As a marketing tool I can see that those with short attention span love it.

As a diary of "I hate my job" I guess its marketing. Like a burger chain saying 90% of the beef they bought this week is somehow tainted with brucellosis. Not good press.

I would suggest a person would only make themselves more unhappy by spending too much time on Twitter complaining about anything, or any social media for that matter. Not healthy for happiness. It can be useful, but it's mostly American's melting pot of hate and negativity.

I pretty much avoid all social media. I begrudgingly have Instagram and Twitter and am somewhat active so that I look legit to other ladies when doing references. Sadly i got the feedback that I'm not active enough so I didn't look real. :?2:

I take the approach of you never know who be might be reading what you tweet or re-tweet. You might be giving people the wrong impression of who you really are with just a few wrong words. Especially these days. I never post on twitter.

If you need more characters can’t you just start a 1/3 type post? if 255 are too few, are you typing away realizing you are running out of space and just delete because your point it ruined?
You do realize the twatter folks don’t have the attention span to keep reading a word salad right?!?!

The school of piranhas that tries to swarm you if you call out their lies or disinformation is almost humorous.

So... You're poisonous? Or have they reduced you to boner and hook? :wink:
