the subtweet.

Hello there friends. I just wanted to write a quick little blurb on what I think about subtweets. Now, if you’re completely new to the world and you do not know what a subtweet is, it’s when someone talks about another person without tagging them or saying their name on social media, usually in a negative light.
Example- “did you forget to look in the mirror this morning?” (I am really not very good at the subtweets but you get the idea okay.)
I cannot tell you how many subtweet fights I have seen between teenaged girls on twitter. It’s just one after the other of constant tweets that are directed at each other, but they never tag each other or say the name… As if people don’t know who they’re talking about or the actual person doesn’t know that they’re directing it towards them. I think girls just feel invincible when they’re hiding behind a screen. I mean sure you can say something horrible about someone on the Internet, but then you can just log off and walk away. It’s not like you have to see their face when they read that, or hear the tone of their voice when they try to think of some snappy comeback. But the fact is, nowadays girls cry way more over heartless virtual jabs than things people say to their face. The Internet shields their emotions and it takes away people’s inhibitions. Basically what I’m saying is, it’s a lot easier to type an insult in a screen than it is to say one to a person’s face. And as far as the subtweet thing goes, the whole anonymous, I-could-be-talking-about-anyone thing is yet another shield. We don’t necessarily even have to admit it was about the person it was about, because we never said. I mean sure it can be painfully obvious, but the fact that it’s so indirect makes it easier to let feelings out without dealing with all of the consequences. But guys, if you’ve ever been hurt by something someone has said online you know how badly it hurts, and why would you ever want to do that to someone else? Also, twitter is not your diary, ladies. When it comes to subtweets about your love life, don’t. Just do not do that. If I see one more “I don’t know how I’m going to ever go to sleep all I can do is cry my heart is broken” or “how am I going to live without you in my life” I swear I will punch that child right out of her subtweeting ways. Those feelings that you have should be shared with The Lord. Ask God to carry your burdens for you. He is the only one who can heal your heart. Telling your issues to twitter isn’t going to get you the attention you desire, all it’s going to do is show that guy that you are pathetic. And that’s the last thing you want. I’m saying this because I’ve been there. guys RISE ABOVE IT! We are better than that. You are better than that.

Sorry for the rant, but I hope you guys enjoyed it??? Haha it’s definitely past my bed time. I love you all so much!

With love,
Claire
