it's not a mistake, as with anything there are going to be pros and cons. the generations before us said the same thing about television. they were certain it was going to rot our brains. who knows maybe they were right.

the problem is it's still so new to us and we weren't fully prepared for it. in the past no one was concerned with the inner ramblings of the everyday person because there wasn't a platform for it. in reality nothing being said or preached on social media is important. it's a low, low form of communication. we need to treat it as such.
i feel like half the news media is just reporting what's being said on twitter. that's not news. there's literally nothing
that newsworthy happening on twitter, even if it involves a person of interest.
the inner ramblings of a person isn't news. twitter culture is mostly made up of lowlives and attention seekers.
