Twitter

This is why you shouldn’t waste one minute of your life on Twitter. I have read a few super popular tweets over the years, and it always, without exception, turned out to be that the reason why the authors were using this medium was that they were trying to conceal something.

Any issue, even something as trivial as what I had for breakfast, can be turned into a scandalous, provocative tweet. If a person turns to Twitter to discuss serious issues, the first question should always be, “what are they trying to conceal?” The truth is always in whatever doesn’t get into the 140 characters.
