Social Media. Yeah, I’m talkin’ about that today. It used to be that twitter was for trying to be the wittiest possible. The game was, “How profound can you be in 140 characters?” It used to be that.
Now, now it’s a freakin’ ad whore. *sorry Grandma. Wait, what am I apologizing for? My Grandma has a fouler mouth then I* Yup, I used that term, and I meant it. It seems that every tweet I read is about this giveaway, or that review, or this product. I get it. Everyone’s making money off these reviews, and giveaways *don’t get me started on how many are illegal!*. But really? Can we not all temper it a bit? Can it not be every single effin’ tweet that I read?
All you fellow fashion and beauty bloggers, can we please regain a sense of decorum? I would love it if everyone used a bit of self restraint. Please let’s all go back to political discussions and profound thoughts in 140 characters or less. Sure, fine, squeeze in that review or giveaway tweet. Fine, I get it. It’s all about promotion. But I would really enjoy a little substance with my superficiality. All I’m asking is that not every other tweet be about the review, or giveaway. Can we at least manage every fourth tweet? Is it really too much to ask?
If I met you on the street you wouldn’t talk to me with ads and shameless self-promotion would you? If you did, I might punch you….or I might dream about punching you and simply walk away while you’re mid sentence. So let’s bring back a little of that human sincerity into social media. Can we all just do that? Is that okay? By the way, read my review of “Human Sincerity” and enter the giveaway too.
