OMFG Moment of the Week


The terrorists in the Kenyan mall attack on Sunday used TWITTER to brag about their brutality.  WTF?!  What kind of world are we living in where terrorists are using social media to spread news of the bloodbath they are creating?!  It is so incredibly sick.  No offense meant to Twitter, of course.  They got on it and deleted the terrorists’ account once they realized what was going on. 

I’m not much of a Twitter fan, to be honest.  Not because of the terror tweets, but because of tweets in general.  To me, it’s one constant status update.  This latest incident just happened to be a more negative and terrifying update than normal. 

What do you think of the role of social media in today’s more negative news events?  Do the pitfalls of social media overweigh the positives?  Could the world being more connected actually be a bad thing?

About bpaige08

I am one of those infamous 20 somethings, fresh out from under the college umbrella. I have always had a deep love for all things pop culture: movies, television, music, books, and (although I cringe to admit it to the nameless mass reading this) celebrity. Acting is my dream, although I currently need to pay off Uncle Sam before I can pursue my lifelong ambition. But that hasn't stopped my passion. I am also passionate about food, animals, and the environment. No, I am not a vegan. No, I do not want to be one. I like eggs. And cheese. They rock. I am TOTALLY open for suggestions, comments, and complaints. Feel free to harass me for my writing style or tell me how much you agree with me.
