Weinergate - The Anti-Social MediaNow that we’ve gone through Weinergate, the stupidest episode in American politics within the last 72 hours, people keep asking pointless questions about Twitter:

“Why do people do this on Twitter?” “Is this something that people wouldn’t do without Twitter?”

People communicate stupid things no matter what medium they are using. Whether online, written down, or in person, people behave in dumb ways because we are all basically stupid, horny, greedy, and selfish.

All Twitter, Facebook, or whatever social media website of the day does is make it so everyone knows how stupid we all are within minutes of us being stupid. So stop being stupid so we can real discussions about fixing all the problems in the world, like Facebook.

    Ugh, why didn’t you warn us this twitpic is NSFW? And fixing Facebook isn’t going to help. We need to put our resources toward MySpace. This is the only way to take back America and become great again!

      It’s only not safe for work if you’re a stick figure fetishist.

    As Americans, we love us a good sexual scandal. It sells papers, it boosts search results, it blows Twitter up. Personally, I think this is something between Weiner and his wife, just like any husband sending nudy photos out to girls that are not his wife. Thanks to the internet, though, it has become all of our business and now we’ve all had to be subjected to it. He didn’t send it to me, and I didn’t want to see it. Thanks internet!

    Facebook fix, where is the list? I don’t think that FB even is aware of half of the changes it should make.

    I’ve never thought of this before now, but is a peace sign really just a stick figure crotch shot?

      That would be quite the well-endowed stick figure. Just sayin…

    Bravo, sir!

    Is there a Jay Dolan fan club? I’d like to join or something.

      You can just stalk me online. It’s better than a fan club because it’s free.
