Last week Miley Cyrus abruptly deleted her Twitter account leaving millions of pre-teens lost and confused and search for new meaning in their Twitter stream. At first, people speculated that her new boyfriend Liam Hemsworth forced her off because he disapproved of the site. In the video she released, Miley says that’s not the case.
Twitter is not the only thing I am cutting back on. This is not an attack against this particular site, I just think kids all over the world could maybe take a little vacation from Cyberspace. My problem with the internet is it makes negativity so available. It allows people to anonymously hurt others without any consequences. That is not the real world. Not only that, but if we spent more time enjoying what we are doing besides tweeting about it, we would enjoy our lives a whole lot more. I have very little free time and the moments that I do have I should be spending with my family and friends and loving every minute of their company.
Miley explains that one day she and Hemsworth were having a deep, meaningful conversation about a fake Twitter account someone created under his name and Liam made her realize that she was wasting time on the site. So, really, Liam didn’t force her off. He just tricked her into quitting the site. Sort of like how an adult uses their superior intellect to coerce a child into cleaning their room or getting into an unmarked, white van. I imagine Liam just used a bunch of big, confusing words that Miley giggled at.
