There’s an article i read today (thanks to Lizard) about how Twitter can you a better and happier person. The reasons listed in the article are:
- Transparency & Values: Twitter constantly reminds me of who I want to be, and what I want to stand for
- Reframing Reality: Twitter encourages me to search for ways to view reality in a funnier and/or more positive way
- Helping Others: Twitter makes me think about how to make a positive impact on other people’s lives
- Gratitude: Twitter helps me notice and appreciate the little things in life
I find all of these true. Sometimes i want to post a tweet about my life and i have to reflect about what i’m really doing and how it’s interesting to others. It often makes me adjust what i’m actually doing – and if i don’t do that then it makes me realize how i’m actually living my life. In that respect, it’s quite helpful.
