This week I wrote a review of the Social Network but I’m unhappy with how it turned out. Long story short: I enjoyed it, but I have a hard time watching people my age make billions of dollars. Thoughts?
So, instead I’ll blog about twitter again. I rarely get “follows” from anyone I know these days, but ever since I put “Los Angeles” in my mini-twitter profile, all sorts of neighborhoods are into my tweets. I have Larchmont. I have Koreatown. Even the Miracle Mile follows me. The other day Korean Food, which I never knew had anything like an organization behind it, agreed to follow me. Which prompted this tweet:
And they responded!
I’m ready for social media to work for me. And I’m hungry. I’ve invested time, spent hours updating things, and never have I ever really received any physical reward for my efforts, Mr. Zuckerberg. You may have made thirty billion dollars, but I have yet to see any tangible benefits from the years I’ve wiled away on social media.
It’s time for that to change.
It’s time for Kimchi.
