Things I hate:
Last night I archived all of my inboxes and plan on unsubscribing from every new subscription email that I absolutely don’t need going forward. I hope to have my inbox back to how it was when I first signed up many, many years ago.
So many years of orders and sign ups that my inbox has become an un-usuable burden — it’s time to take it back.
Being a tweeter, coincidentally, is similar to the life of a bird. Instead of seasons, however, we have weekdays, where we tweet all week and then when it is time to go to the weekend— we fly away, only to migrate home (to twitter) on Sunday nights.
Are we all insane?
As Facebook struggles to find itself, Instagram has seen an increase in growth over the past year.
Where your Facebook feed has come overrun with news links and memes from people you might have had a class with in college, or you knew from sixth grade, new users at Instagram are rebuilding their social network from scratch, with private accounts consisting of their closest friends.

Obviously, I would assume (and hope) that every person he has ever told this to just ignores him. But imagine if someone said ok? And just bent over in front of him and let him bite their butt right then and there?
Because people have different followers than you.
The worst thing about social media are the timestamps. Tiny, little reminders of how fast time and life is passing us by.
