Now with a marshmallow center…

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

I roll my eyes a lot when people get their feelings hurt on twitter. People need thicker skins and should just realize that the internet it full of assholes. And then tonight, twitter made me cry. I tweeted this:

For anyone who may not know, I pink puffy heart love Top Chef. It isn’t just my favorite show on Bravo, it is my favorite show on tv. I frequently have to dodge Top Chef spoilers on twitter, which isn’t that big of a deal, I just pop off and just check my mentions and DMs. Normally, I tweet something of this nature. No big deal. Within 30 seconds, I got this response:

I blurred out the name just in case anyone hasn’t seen it yet. Now, I had already closed twitter on my laptop, but if I happen to be looking at my phone (which I was), I see the tweet when the notification comes in. I promptly burst in to tears.

I have no idea who this person is and I don’t know if he was following me before this tweet or not, but he was following me when I went to screen grab the tweets. It is really weird. I don’t know what propmted this, I guess my tweet was a little assey about the spoiler thing, but I do think it is the people who do not want to be spoiled’s responsibility to dodge twitter or facebook or live streams if you don’t want to find out what happens.

This isn’t the first time someone has been a jerk to me on twitter and I am sure it won’t be the last, but it is the first time twitter made me cry. Now, while I am a little emotionally invested in this season of Top Chef, I am also exhausted. I put a lot of pressure on myself this week to finish a last minute writing project, clean up part of the house and I am flying solo and Spencer has pretty much been on nap strike and sleep rebellion. So, that is probably what made me cry. But this was still annoying.
