Two days ago, I decided to deactivate my Facebook and disengage from the Twitterati. Why do these two decisions deserve such attention? Well, why should the fact that I still own a “clam shell style” cell phone define me as not current with technology or put me in a particular age demographic? Just out of curiosity, I went to a 2004 edition of Merriam-Webster Dictionary to look up the definition of twitter n…1: a slight agitation of the nerves 2: a small tremulous intermittent noise (as made by a swallow) 3: a light chattering. I also looked up social media’s definition of Twitter just for kicks, which basically uses the same definition. I’ve realized I want more. I am not interested in a surface level agitation of my nerves or a conversation consisting of a limited number of characters.
This is what matters to me.
