The first week of the New Year is already behind us. Who knew that is would be so full of surprises and interesting stories. One of the stories that stuck a cord with me was the reaction to a recent Vanity Fair article featuring several “Twilebrites” (author’s word not mines). There were tons of different reactions on my twitter stream that I just had to go read the article for myself.
I am not an avid reader of the magazine but I am avid user of Twitter and follow at least two of the young ladies featured. I don’t feel that the article painted the ladies in the best of light. As mention before I follow two of the young ladies and their tweets are far from “getting highlights before class”. Twitter is a different type of medium that people are using to connect with a mass amount of people. I personally have met and connect with a few people in real life as well as online. I have learned a lot from them. Yes, there are a people who may use Twitter to broadcast what they are eating for breakfast. However, that probably a small amount of what goes on out twitter. I think maybe if the author of the article took a little more time to see into Twitter the way these ladies do the article would have gone in a totally different direction. When will we start moving away from “Sex sells everything” – it’s 2010; let’s start using our brains.
