The Twouble with Twitter
As I posted on The Point Blog the other day, this video on Twitter shows a good example of using humor to expose the flaws of mankind -- see Zoe Sandvig's article in BreakPoint WorldView Magazine (click here for a free subscription).
Similar to Filipinos being all over the globe, Pinoy are also dominating the social media sphere with many starting their own blogs and joining networking sites such as Facebook, Multiply, Friendster and Twitter. But with all its popularity, one can’t still avoid the truth that if uncontrolled, social networking sites can be isolating and addicting -- just as in the video, where many are “randomly bragging about our unexceptional lives… and have become reliant on this constant state of self-affirmation.” Or in Biblical terms, committing idolatry.
