Random Chat Rooms, Beyonce Remixes, and Responsible Turkey Tracking.
|Amy Widdowson||Apr 30, 2020|
Sweeties! A bit delayed this morning, because I am a rebel without a cause who rejects all rules and rolls up her t-shirt to store her Benson and Hedges Menthol Ultra Lights carton like the troublemaker she is. J/K, that was College Amy and it was 16 years ago and it was only for a couple of months after a break-up and I’M SORRY, MUM!
TO THE INTERNET!
Speaking of Mum of the Missive, she would like you to know that the Calgary turkey now has “his own tracking site complete with anti-harassment safeguard.” According to the creator of the app, who is a professor at Mount Royal University with allegedly a lot of time on her hands, “We delay the current data by a few days just to give him a little bit of privacy, not ruffle his feathers.” And if you’re looking for me, I’m banging my face against the wall for not coming up with that statement myself.
This peek into influencer culture is a trip: “Coronavirus fears have inspired shaming and death threats online. This is how public concern turns into harassment.”
Reddit added a random chat room feature, and now I’m being transported back to being an eighth grader on dial-up AOL wondering why a strange dude is asking me A/S/L.
And finally, if you aren’t listening to the Beyonce remix of Tik Tok hit “Savage” on loop (lyrics NSFW, but you’re at home, so really what’s the harm…) are we even friends?
You’re great! Be kind to each other.
