    Twitter, the last frontier...of short statuses and funny pictures. In today's day and age, it is almost impossible to survive without hash tags and handles. Everywhere, posters, buildings, papers, advertisements, twitter references are running rampant. #Idontcare #gettingrealtiredofsuperlonghastagsthatdontmakeanysensewhatsoever. Seriously, what's the big deal with all these handles and statuses whirling around inserting itself into everyday language? Twitter, how dare you impose on proper English, making yourself acceptable for pre-teen people to use. No. No. To a person who loves the beauty, Twitter has become nothing but a nuisance. Furthermore, Twitter has effectively killed the ‘pound sign' and replaced it with hash tags. It was originally, and will always be in my heart, a pound sign.

        Okay, my frustrations with Twitter have a limit. Admittedly, my feed includes mass amounts of sports teams, joke quotes, leaked snapchats, news organizations, uber facts, and friends posting funny things. Sadly, one of my proudest moments was when I hit 100 followers.

Yes, be jealous. Confession time, I am extremely happy I can retweet because I am not as clever as I think I am. So I will apologize for my pun filled tweets #laughatme #IthinkImfunny. I will maintain the greatness of the English language by tweeting grammatically correct. #Sucharebel.
