Want to know how I know that this CNN story is utter crap?
This quote: “Damasio cited the example of U.S. President Barack Obama, who says he was inspired by his father, to show how admiration can be key to cultural success.”
If only we all had absent fathers to admire! Then we could ALL become President! *facepalm*
Seriously, though, I have made a lot of personal connections through Twitter. True, there are some people I follow who I don’t know that well, and sometimes I’ll skip over their tweets, but I never skip over things my close friends say. I’ve tried to move toward DMs recently when I have something *important* to say to someone. I think my generation is better able to communicate emotion through words, and as long as “the chiiildren” are getting a good moral foundation at home, they’ll be okay. But the Internet is not a replacement parent, and saying that Twitter and Facebook are ruining the MORALITY OF THE CHILDREN OMG!! is ridiculous.
