Tweets of the week


With most of us spending way too much time alone and inside right now, social media has stepped up to increase the feeling of community in such an isolating time. Whether it’s Instagram trends, like drawing a carrot and passing it along to some friends, or Facebook updates about the creative ways people are social distancing, these different media platforms have, in ways, taken a turn for the better. While social media can often load us up with content that leaves us setting unrealistic standards for ourselves or provide a platform for negativity and hate, it can also have its positive uses and a global pandemic is certainly one of them.

While Instagram is a great place to stay connected with your friends, Twitter is a platform that can connect you to the world. Instead of people putting on their best face to craft their image, it’s a faceless world of people’s thoughts and opinions, and in a pandemic, it’s full of creativity and humor. Rather than comparing yourself to others, you can connect to them and be reminded that to a certain extent, we’re all really in the same boat.
