Twitter on TV…

I remember writing a blog post years ago about how strange it was that none of the characters on Friends had a blog. I mean, the show was on until 2004. In 2000, it wouldn’t have made sense. But by 2003? Rachel should have been a mom blogger or something. It would have brought the show in to the times.

It fascinates me how long it takes for TV to catch up with reality. CSI just makes me laugh at times with their magical computers.

It was refreshing to see Twitter while watching Girls today. (Season 1, episode 3.) Hannah was posting to Twitter, and Twitter looked *like* Twitter. THAT is the big part. Not fake Twitter. Real Twitter. The only thing that would make it better is if the show actually had Hannah’s Twitter account as a live account. One where you could read the tweets. They have claimed the account, but it isn’t set up – it just links to the main Girls Twitter account.

I know this isn’t the first time Twitter has appeared on TV. I know other shows have talked about Facebook, blogging, Twitter, so on and so forth. Not all have cheesy computer effects. It just jumped out at me today as I was watching Girls. Props to HBO for getting it right and keeping it real. Thank you!

Social Media Addiction: Are You at Risk?

“We’re just doing a few lines of Twitter!”

This totally cracked me up — but it is also a good reminder that sometimes, you need to turn it all off and take a break. As much as I love social media, the times I’ve chosen to be offline this year have been a good thing! At the end its addiction, its just healthier than drugs or alcohol, if you are addicted to alcohol, you should read what alcohol does to your body, because many people don’t understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs. They may mistakenly think that those who use drugs lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop their drug use simply by choosing to. In reality, drug addiction is a complex disease, and quitting usually takes more than good intentions or a strong will, learn more on Drug addiction and substance abuse is becoming a big problem in the states, if you are addicted or know someone who needs help, please visit this article about pompano rehab center. I know people who have been alcoholics and after reading this article, they stop drinking. Most people prefer going to The Recovery Village, it´s where everybody goes to get rid of their addiction and come out a brand new person so they can start of a new life. When someone suffers from drug addiction the best way to help them is to take them to a rehab center, learn more about rehab programs on discoverynj.

Many people don´t know what to do once they are stuck in an addiction, that´s why The Recovery Village is the first place people prefer to go and get the help they need, because drugs aren´t going to help anybody improve in life. If that won’t help get past your addiction then go to Atlanta rehab center and they help you with treatment where they walk people through the entire process of addictino. Many people also find the alcohol detox in florida state center very helpful. As you probably already know many people suffer from addiction.

  • Dirty Dancing and Roadhouse double feature at the Silverado theater this afternoon! Awww… Patrick Swayze. Nobody puts Baby in the corner! #
  • @gafl delete the 1:1 previews, you can then render minimal ones – much smaller. Less space. I thought previews stored w/ catalog though. in reply to gafl #
  • When I first saw Dirty Dancing in the 80s I had no idea that Swayze was a trained dancer, I had no idea you had to take dance classes for boys in order to dance like that. Makes the movie even better knowing that! #
  • RT @zappos: "The real measure of your wealth is how much you'd be worth if you lost all your money." -Unknown (via @greenorchid) #
  • @daimo42 that is a bit heavy at the upsell attempts. Somehow ironic considering your job. 😉 We need to talk soon, by the way. in reply to daimo42 #
  • Forgot to mention it is a Patrick Swayze double feature at the movies. Roadhouse just started! I think it his only movie I've never seen. #
  • Roadhouse is full of a million examples of WTF??? were we thinking in the 90s – both fashion and hair. Ouch. So very bad! #
  • @regalaffair Yes, yes, I had somehow managed to miss the brilliance that is Roadhouse before. @DayToRemember I actually commented on both! in reply to regalaffair #
