We are a sad, sad, sad society. Apparently we are completely convinced that the greater world is frothing to discover our every move, each thought, all tiny details of our daily and largely dull lives.
Everybody wants to be a celebrity.
There doesn't seem to be any privacy at all on the network. Twitter people talk about anything and everything, from the most mundane to the most embarrassing. Anthony Weiner could tell you something about this. From what I can gather, many tweets are potentially humiliating, yet the twits keep on tweeting.
The blog http://inklingmedia.net did a post last March about this. Called, “Twit Happens”, it explores the goof-ups that happen all the time with this forum of social interaction. People constantly either post embarrassing things or they mistakenly send to all the wrong recipients. The writer goes on to give some pointers on how to avoid this, to whit:
- Don’t be stupid
- Use common sense
- Slow down
- Think before you post
- Think again
- If you have doubts, don’t pull the trigger
- Keep thinking
