My history teacher is under the impression that anyone under 46 (anyone younger than him) uses Twitter. Until he asked if we “twittered”, which I’m positive is not the correct way of referring to updates made on Twitter, I hadn’t even heard of it. When I checked it out, it just struck me as a bunch of status updates. I’m sure there’s value in that, but do I REALLY need more social networking thingies to distract me when I’m obviously trying to be a diligent student?   “Why am I doing this again? 6:40 AM May 12th, 2009”   I’m sure that’s what my status would be on Twitter.   My parents, both middle-aged, apparently both have Twitter and Facebook and use them both frequently. I may really just be 18 going on 40 and am an antithesis to the stereotype of the social networking users: young, “hip”, addicted to Facebook and…whatever else we’re supposed to be. Honestly, I don’t spend a lot of time on Facebook, MySpace or anything akin to that. I’d rather be…I don’t know, taking a walk outside in the beautiful weather even though said beautiful weather is causing my allergies to flare up?   When I go off to University/College Land where people are supposedly even more addicted to Social Networking, I hope I don’t become outcast because lo and behold, I’m not addicted to these networking thingies!   – Allyson
