I always said that no matter what–I would NOT get a Facebook account. I was a Myspace kind of girl and wanted nothing to do with the new social network. After a while, though, more of my friends started trading out the fancy layouts and profile songs for the more “mature” look of Facebook. After one of my friends begged me to get on, I finally caved. Now I have him to thank for sleepless nights and avoided homework. I think most college students and many other people can agree that Facebook is addicting. I even have it as my home page! The point that I am making here is that there are certain things that take trying out and a little bit of getting used to before you develop a liking for it. So when I was assigned to get a Twitter account, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. My natural reaction was to say, “Oh no, just another thing to get involved in,” however I wanted to try to give it a chance.
The more I used it though, the less appealing it was to me. I stuck with my initial reaction and now, a week or two, later, I can honestly say my life is no different with Twitter. It didn’t help me, it didn’t teach me anything, it was honestly just a waste of time. I can understand people who get really into it, though. If I continued using it for more of a social thing, rather than for a class, I might have a slightly different attitude towards it. It just seems so pointless to constantly update people on what you’re doing at every moment. Maybe later on I will come around to it, but for now, I think I am going to say goodbye to Twitter and focus on my same ole same ole with Facebook 🙂
