Social Media: Election Style

Last night, the results from the election were revealed. As many stayed up to watch I decided sleep was more important, but what I find appalling afterwards and before and during this whole election process is the amount of opinions of Twitter and Facebook.

It’s great that people want to voice their opinion, but it’s gotten kind of out of control. No one should bash one or the other side for their stance. I may not agree with a certain side, but I have never argued or tried to make a person feel uncomfortable. Whoever you vote for you should not end up getting ridiculed. Honestly during the whole election I just wanted Twitter and Facebook to be shut down. As said before I don’t care who you side with I care that people still respect each other. Yes, we live in a country full of freedom and having our own rights, but to a certain extent last night at least on my twitter and Facebook was an all out war.

This is the only time I will state my opinion on politics on social media. America is not about red and blue states, it’s not about who we hate and who we love, it’s about making this the best place to live, what you think that is why people vote.

In the end I’m thankful the elections are over and people can go back to telling funny jokes about life, happy occasions, sad occasions, inside jokes and more on Twitter/Facebook instead of election craziness.

Here’s a song that I can’t stop listening to!!!

The iPhone/Twitter Addiction

Last Thursday I turned 19! I’m so thankful that I have made it through 19 years, I’m sure my parents can’t believe it. On my 19th though my sister got me an iPhone! I was so excited, she gave me the option between iPhone and rain boots. I am not going to lie I really did consider the rain boots… Seriously though look how cute these are.

The rain boots I want! Why do they have to be $128 :(

Anyway now that I have an iPhone my addictions to certain things have become worse. For example, I’m on Twitter a lot more now. I’m not even tweeting more I’m just looking and reading tweets more. Before my phone had an app for Twitter but it took forever to upload, and so now with my iPhone the app is so much faster.

For a student on Butler campus I think having a twitter is such a good idea! You find out so many things through following Butler twitters. These are the twitters I follow from Butler with an explanation as to what they tweet about or why I follow them!

  • @butleru: This twitter mostly keeps me updated on things going on around campus. They always say Happy Monday. I’m not going to lie I enjoy seeing that tweet!
  • @butlerHRC: This twitter is from our Heath & Recreation Complex. They are fun to follow because they let you know when there are free massages or when a special event is going!
  • @butlerMBB: This is Butler’s Men Basketball Team twitter. They keep you updated on scores or anything going on with players!
  • @ButlerBlue2: Obviously this is an awesome twitter. It’s our mascot! Who doesn’t love Blue 2? Get a daily dosage of his craziness… I think he has a busier schedule than me.
  • @ButlerPrez: This the twitter of our new President, Mr. Danko. I think it’s important to keep up with what he’s doing for campus!
  • @gobutleru: This twitter is for admissions! Whether a current student or incoming student I think it’s still nice to know what’s going on!
  • @SGAatBU: SGA stands for Student Government Association they plan a lot of things on campus and give out free stuff! Who doesn’t want free stuff?!
  • @LevesterJohnson: This is the tweet of our VP of Student Affairs, once again more free stuff! You never know what he has up his sleeve.

So no matter what your interest, whether it be student government, sports, or maybe following a dog, Butler’s got you covered! Just make sure it doesn’t distract you to the point where you aren’t doing any work…. Happy Tuesday!
