Let's Talk About: Twitter Topics

Twitter can be the gift and the curse. There are reasons why I love it. I love the interaction with different and/or like minded people from all over the world. I love the fact that I can get information on music, fashion and politics at a glance. One of the best things I've discovered via Twitter have been LowKey's site or My Fair Sweets. But, there is a sense of redundancy that can get irritating. I've talked about it before here, here and here. One thing that I've noticed is that the same topics get rehashed every few weeks. It's exhausting.

Those topics are as followed:

- $200 Dates
- $30,000 engagement ring
- twitter hypebeasts
- titles in relationship

Here's my take on the ridiculous list. I would never demand a man spend $200 on a first date or any date. That is insane. I think that a date can be great no matter the amount of money spent on it. Also, I'm not of the singular mind that a man is the only one who is supposed to pay for the date. Who decides what the appropriate amount of money to spend is? It's silly and it reeks of people who have never gone out on an actual date. Ok, in what average working American's mind is a $30,000 engagement ring feasible? That is in-damn-sane. $30,000??? What in the world? Yes, I am very much a girlie girl. Yes, I would love a nice engagement ring that fits my style. But, what ungrateful woman demands a price maximum on an engagement ring? I could never open my mouth and demand this of the man I love. That is right up there with demanding a proposal. I would never. Twitter has a way of hyping Hip Hop artists and their works. I still do not see the hype of Lil B, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross amongst others.

People on Twitter aren't into titles in relationships. I have never been that girl. If I'm with you, then I'm yours. I like structure and titles. In a relationship, I am your girlfriend, your woman, your girl, your better half. Claim me cause I am damn sure going to claim you. If not, we could just be friends. No benefits though. Just friends with a capitol F. I like things to look a certain way. I don't play games in relationships. Titles are needed by me. I like them. There are other issues that get rehashed. I filter/mute them out of my timeline so I don't have to see them. I don't engage in the talks. It just becomes to much at times. I'm also too old to be discussing some things online. I take Twitter for the entertainment that it is intended to be. Nothing more, nothing less. Twitter is just fun.


  1. I've never had a Twitter account and I don't believe that I ever will. I've deleted my Facebook account and I just might delete a couple of email accounts that I rarely use.

    No tweets for me..........

    1. @ Reggie - I really like Twitter despite this rant. Facebook is cool too for me. I've always been a very social person. So they both work for me.
