Miley Cyrus raps a Good-bye Twitter
So Miley Cyrus seems to be one of the many who probably could have utilized Twitter to her advantage a opposed to her disadvantage. Instead of turning her Twitter life around, Miley Cyrus has instead decided to leave. Yes, Miss Cyrus is leaving Twitter behind.
Good news? Bad news? Who cares news? Whichever way you want to look at it, the fact remains, she's through with Twitter. Will she be back? Who knows? One thing is for sure, Miley could have used Twitter to her advantage and she still can... if she's willing.
Many people think that twitter is about sharing when you brush your teeth and other menial thoughts and actions of ones every day life condensed into bite-sized morsels. BORING! And yeah, who really cares, overall? The people that this kinds of stuff matters to you could call on the phone. You could even blog about it. Take this in point: Good-bye Twitter (seriously... who cares?)--embedding is disabled on this video, so if you want to see it, you'll need to click on the link and it will take you to the video in another window. The maker of this video has a very good point and supports my view on this what to twitter about issue. And think about it, how much room does twitter leave anyone for expansion or explanation on anything!
Twitter is about making connections and sharing great articles and supporting positions on things that matter to you most. It's about discovering the online world in a way that isn't currently possible in any other instant gratification forum. You can twitter your blogs that talk about pimples if you like. You can twitter or re twitter other people's blogs about their pimples and what they're doing with Noah. But quite frankly, Twitter is not the place to just be saying you're picking your pimples... especially if you're a superstar. Twitter has its uses and very good ones too.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of Miley Cyrus. I loved her last movie. I enjoy most of her music. Her show is fun to watch. I must make this clear. I am NOT bashing Miley Cyrus' entertainment value. And truth be told she is most lucky for the great entertainers that she has grown up with like her Dad and Dolly Parton, just to name two of the many. I mean how lucky is that to be able to sing with and be sung to by that most awesome gal, Dolly!? But Miley is young yet. And hopes are that all those icons I've grown to love and respect, those iconic figures she has had at her fingertips her whole life, will help guide her through these teenage and early twenties years of hers; cause those years are NOT easy. Miley is trying to find herself in a world of billions. That's not easy for a "nobody" let alone a persona of her stature.
I'm thinking though that these greats should really be teaching her a thing or two about the real Twitter; to at least find someone that will. And I do mean the Beneficial Twitter. The Twitter that she could be using to promote herself and others with, to talk about the wonderful volunteer and charity work she's involved with every week, to get other people involved in helping others, or to give venues of great entertainment value that aren't personal.
No, my advice to Miley is to use this opportunity to her benefit. She's an actress for god's sakes. It can't be that hard to switch gears and contain herself for like two minutes out of her day and share the things that matter to her most in this society. Leave the paparazzi and the gossipers no choice but to report what's there, and not what isn't.
