  1. I don’t understand the attitude that not sharing “bad days” on Twitter is being disingenuous.  If asked how I’m doing in regular conversation, I don’t go into my recent surgery, the death of two pets in the last month, or how my hemorrhoids are flaring. Why would it be any different online? Perhaps with close friends in private but not in public.  I don’t know anyone that does this and I would find it off putting if I did, to be quite honest.

    You’re right about how we are currently forming these new communities; how we act now matters, not just for us now but for our future selves.
