Title: “Miss Manners

By: Todd Defren

Blog: PR Squared

 

The Blog post I read, “Miss Manners” by Todd Defren is about the lack of manners in the business world now due to technology. I couldn’t agree more with the article. To add to it, I think that manners have somewhat disappeared from society all together due to technology. I mean really, when was the last time anyone held a door open for someone? I do it all the time but I rarely see it happen any other time.

Twitter: Why do I need it? Why do you have it?

A couple weeks ago, I finally decided to keep up with the times and get a twitter account. I’ve played around with the basics. I started following friends and family, got into what some celebrities are ranting and raving about, and even started to pull a little group of followers (which despite the fact that it’s my mom and two kids from high school, I still feel like a celebrity). However, to be quite honest I find it to be more annoying than anything else. First of all, why should I really care if my cousin just tried anew toothpaste or that my favorite band has practice in Ohio at 7 p.m.? I suppose if it was the greatest toothpaste in the world, she’d be ranting and raving about it at thanksgiving, or that maybe if I lived in Ohio and my favorite band was telling people to come jam with them I’d be interested but quite frankly, as of now, I do not. Which brings me to my next point, if someone does truly care that I am leaving my house to go to class or interested in any other trivial fact about my daily life, that’s not interest, that’s stalking (If you are truly that obsessed with someone please refrain from shooting the messenger and seek help). I guess my biggest question in the past few weeks since finally giving in to twitter is why do we need this? Why, society, is it that there is a need for such a thing to exist? Do people even read the posts half the time? All I’m saying is that if you truly care about someone’s day to day life that much they are probably a loved one and you are a part of their day to day life anyway, which makes you special (again if they do not love you back, seek help). My point is Twitter takes away the comfort of having a special someone that you can tell everything to at the end of the day which I personally think is a necessity, and for everyone else you want to know about, there’s Facebook.
