Fucked up shit on Twitter vol. 2

Given what the last post on this blog was, it feels a bit weird that I’m about to share some more weird shit that I’ve seen on twitter. I’m not sure if I’m being a hypocrite and if I am, then I’ve probably done that a lot on this blog and you’re still reading so maybe you accept it (or don’t care, either one works for me). Anyway back to twitter.

Fucking pictures man:

Everybody knows about the kind of pictures that you can find on twitter, I don’t have the word for them to be honest, I just know that these pictures make me say ‘what the fuck!’ without fail, every time I see them. I don’t want to rave on to much about it because every time I post about weird shit on twitter you’ll see pictures.

Trending topics:

So there’s a trending topic called #unconventionalblackbeauty which is celebrating just that. It’s a good hearted topic however twitter has chosen to very be twitter about it.

And then there’s this:

It’s not even fucked up, it’s just funny

And one more:

The ‘news’

The media is ridiculous! I’m sure this is something that everybody knows, I honestly don’t have the word to describe the quality of the content that they feed to the public. Journalists are capable of producing news stories that can give the public hope about this world (lack of a better phrase) but they rarely ever do that. I’m not too sure about the rest of the world but whenever I look at newspapers and certain news channels, they always cover things that provide the most entertainment value; it’s almost as if every news outlet is slowly turning into E! News.

There are so many things happening day in and day out which means that there are plenty of chances for the world to be informed of actual news, like how Akon is paying out of his own pocket to bring electricity to over 600 million people across Africa. Instead we’re told about people trolling on the internet and people getting sex changes.

I’m not trying to get on my high horse and say that we should be receiving REAL NEWS (even though that’s basically what I’m doing), I’m trying to point out that we pay attention to a lot of crap and it becomes relevant because of that. When people say that they don’t pay attention to the news, I don’t blame them for avoiding it because there’s nothing of worth that’s being broadcast.

What’s really fucked up about it, is that the world needs the news otherwise there’s no way to keep up with these current events.
