When Twitter Drove her to the Brink of Insanity

Image result for twitter funny

I don’t know if Gift-Work is a new blog, or perhaps just an older blog with fewer followers and readers and to be honest, to me it doesn’t matter. The blog is new to me and I liked what I read. Since I don’t believe in reblogging too much, I will now full intentionally steal part of the content, to make you want to read more and I hope, I will be forgiven. I also hope I will succeed!

Twitter had a way of keeping me socially conscious, angry, but conscious.  People in my circle noticed my level of anger increasing. I went to Twitter to fight strangers with words.  I blamed stress at work.  I blamed the news.  I blamed the president.  Eventually, I began to realize I was my most combative in my real life after I just finished sparring with someone’s grandma in Colorado on Twitter.  It wasn’t just her though.  Everyone got to me in some way and I had to fight to “defend” myself….or did I?

….

Twitter brought out a side in me that was ugly.  It was disgusting.  It was argumentative, stubborn and refused to ever be in chill mode.  This was a side of me I disliked and what was worse…the better my rants and zings the more people “followed.”   I’m a firm believer in the idea that you get out of life what you put in.  Reaping what you sow.  Well folks I was sowing discord and discontentment and that’s what I got back.

Interesting post which explains so much. Please, read the whole post When Twitter drove me to the brink of insanity.

  1. I had to take Twitter off my phone. I was addicted, I think. And I didn’t like the feeling of continual agitation. There is so much anger in the Twitter-sphere and I was soaking it up. I’m going to make my way over to the blog you’re suggesting. Thank you.

  2. The anonymity of Twitter fibres free rein to speak one ‘s minds without polite Protocols. But where did the rant get us? Only relieved the frustrations some. Bete to maintain your dignity and wrote an eloquent well thought out and balanced argument.
