We rely on Twitter to help us express our thoughts and keep up with the news. And with Twitter’s Apple TV app (our 2016 App of the Year), we’ve also got a bigger window into current events and topical discussions. From breaking-news tweets to live Periscope feeds—and even Thursday Night Football—the benefits of that little bird are always getting bigger.

If you haven’t downloaded Twitter already— don’t.

Twitter is a cesspool of the worst human behavior imaginable. Twitter brings out the worst in humanity, and for people like me— it’s inescapable. I am addicted to the pain that Twitter brings me daily. That’s not to say that all of Twitter is bad— Every day I see something that makes me laugh on Twitter, and I like to believe that’s what keeps me coming back to the site, But I know that what truly keeps me tethered to Twitter is the insurmountable fear that I am missing out. Even if there is nothing on my timeline, I will close the application only to re-opening it out of pure muscle memory. I get nearly all of my news from Twitter, and that’s not a good thing, because I am not reading the news, but the peoples’ reaction to the news. The amount of viciousness, animosity and hatred that you see on Twitter is enough to send you into fits of depression, and soon enough you become a part of it. It’s unavoidable. Recently I’ve been questioning if it is truly Twitter that is causing me to feel negatively, or is Twitter simply enlightening me to the nature Of humanity.
If you can avoid it do not start using Twitter. Spend time with your family, your friends, and enjoy your life. Say hello to your neighbors, help your community, create art, do what you love. Please, save yourself while you can, because for people like me, it’s too late

Twitter Assessment

I am 82 years old and have been on Twitter since 2016. Twitter for me is a way to keep my brain active and to give my opinion on different subjects. I now have over 8000 followers, and dropping, from all over the World. I try to follow Twitter rules as best as I can. Every so often one of my tweets will get sent to file 13 without any explanation. I would like an explanation. Right now I’m losing followers and I don’t know who or why. I want to give Twitter the benefit of the doubt and hope they are not arbitrarily removing my followers because I’m a Republican. For good or for bad a lot of Twitter users misrepresent themselves. I am who I say I am and am proud of it. I am an open minded Republican which means I listen to Democrat’s opinions with an open mind & try my best to understand why they hate our POTUS. The one thing that aggravates me is somebody trying to fool me into believing they are someone else in order to humiliate me. That is a total lack of respect. If you disagree with something I tweet, be man or woman enough to tell me why. ARMY STRONG.
