Ive been thinking lately about social sites and how they are affecting my every day life. Initially Twitter was just a fun place for me to bitch and moan, its clear to me now its much more. I knew it the moment after I found out that mom died, and I needed support. I went directly to twitter, and poured my heart out. To my surprise, people who I didn’t even “know” reached out. When I finally felt comfortable telling Facebook (I think it was a day later) I just got a lot of “Im sorrys” very generic and fake feeling.
Is it sad that I feel closer to my twitter friends than my “real” friends? I mean really. I can tell twitter ANYTHING, and not worry about judgement. I heavily edit myself on Facebook. Now Im kind of wondering why I even keep Facebook. Everything seems fake and forced. For example my “best friend” who moved away a few years ago- hasn’t even so much as said a fake Im sorry, or anything about moms death. While Im holding her hand and listening while she moans and groans about everything. Im just wondering why I feel like I need Facebook. I can’t be the only one….
In all twitter friends, I love you guys and all the support you guys give me (and for listening to my constant crap!)
