Twitter. Good, Bad, Ugly?

Prior to the class of beginning multimedia I have used twitter slightly. I used it to fallow celebrities, news stations, and comical sites.  I never thought of twitter be something professional. I looked at my pervious tweets and I had retweeted and tweeted, for most of the time I said things that were appropriate. As I looked at my tweets I realized that some of them I would not show my future employer.

Is this a bad thing? I believe that social media can be a place where you let things fly. If it is a dirty joke or something political you shouldn’t be afraid to let it be shared with your friends. This is called a social life. Yes there are downfalls to posting what ever you please, but keep in mind its your right to say what you please.

The Good

Twitter is good to keep up to date on daily events. For example when Mach Madness was going on, I could look at twitter and search hashtags for events that were happening in that moment. You can also see others hashtags and fallow events that are unplanned and happening. For example when the musician Prince died, as soon as you looked on your twitter you could see the hashtag #RIPPrince and read peoples tweets about the event.

The Bad

People can use Twitter to bully and say very mean things. Everyone has the right to express their opinion but somethings are meant to be kept private. People can exploit others just like any other social media as well. Keep it clean and be nice about your postings.

The Ugly

Twitter is full of garbage. Some celebrities post too much information that as people should know about. People constantly are fighting back and forth about silly things that really have no meaning. Also there are just some people on Twitter that you just do not want to fallow because it is just ugly stuff.


Take a  look at my twitter, I be you will learn, laugh, and question life.
