Yup.

You really didn't think about that though.

Okay.

Once again, you don't have to use Twitter as a social network. It is a completely viable option to use Twitter solely to keep updated feeds on anything you're interested in.

Stephen Reid is using his own personal Twitter to keep a lot of us appraised of what's going on. It's easier for him to handle probably, considering the massive influx of posts on the forums. It's easier for people to ask him questions and get responses. This is a bonus feature, an extra. It's not, in my opinion, something we're necessarily entitled to.

You can't really protest social media. It's sort of like the radio and television. It's one of those things that we as a society need to learn to find meaningful ways to incorporate into our lives before it can do the harm you're worried about. Not using Twitter in the way I described, not taking control of it and making it yours, is just as much a failure to help social media evolve.

I would quote all of you but that would take to much work on my part lol.

and as for the you cant protest social media...

many people tried to do the very same thing when the telegraph, telephone, radio, and television first came out...

They just failed (and thankfully so), and trust me I know my resistance is futile. That is not going to change the way I feel about it, and as for the arguement that this forum is social media...

Eh...

technally you have me there, but to me that is like arguing that all nude photos are **** when some of those photos are rightly classified as art.

EDIT: Really BioWare!? how can anybody get me point if they cant read my post, or should I have spelt out the full word pronography

The field of **** should read (edit out spaces) p o r n

EDIT 2: I guess I need to spell it out fully lol.
