I'm trying to characterize social media and this is
what I came up with:

Instagram: My life is a party.
Snapchat: My life is a quirky TV show
Facebook: My life turned out great!

Twitter: Your jokes suck
Instagram: Your face sucks
Snapchat: Your life sucks
Facebook: Your family misses you and is also racist

Facebook: Essential oils.
Snapchat: I'm a bunny!
Instagram: I ate a hamburger.

If I had to join one, I think it would be Twitter.
Looks like that's where most of the entertainment is.

Happy Friday Miss C.

Happy Friday, gwdMaine! I must admit that I browse Twitter occasionally, because the people I found to follow are either hilarious or good at linking things I can use.
