    Social Media

    I don't Twitter or Facebook. I don't Skype either, I try to stay as private as possible. My experiences I may talk about here are very real and so are my opinions on various subjects. One reason I believe in my privacy, I say what I really feel.

    Plus if I didn't care what people thought while I was on Facebook why would I care what they think in fewer characters on Twitter?

    I don't have a twitter

    or a Facebook. I tried them but couldn't get into it. EP is about the closest thing I have to a social network. I think it's better because you can choose what relates to you and find people that share your interests, not just reading lame posts.

    I have no idea about twitter. It came out when I was no longer in school so I couldn't pick up on it from the other kids, and I dont watch tv at all. I don't really even know what twitter is to tell the truth.
