I will admit it, scouring through Twitter trending lists is my guilty pleasure. Unfortunately the only people usually partaking in these trends are high schoolers and people who seem to lack the concept of grammar (usually, not always). A lot of the times I resist my urge to partake, or retweet any of the goodies because my Twitter is a reflection of who I am. Better yet, it is something I can curate to show my best side at all times (although sometimes that isn’t always the case).
There are people on my Twitter feed that I can identify as single, lonely, unemployed and on the opposite spectrum, in love and ridiculously happy. Obviously I sometimes am all of the aforementioned, but I don’t want to overload people with it because then you just become associated with that adjective or action. A friend of mine always whined via Facebook, and her RA’s referred to her as “Facebook Girl.” So although I would love to tweet all day about #thingsthaturnmeon (punk rockers, tattoos, smart men, and secret dorks), I just can’t.
What are some hashtags you can get behind without shame? When I see #ReasonsIhateJerseyShore on the left side of my Twitter feed, you know I’ll be hammering out 140 characters in no time at all.
