Duh-doy.

Anything you experience can have an impact on your mental health, and any obsession or addiction is bound to be the earmark of a degradation of such.

It's not Twitter so much as TweetDeck that drives me crazy.

Twitter appears to be a digital domain for, well, twits....

It makes me go... something something...

Anyone else hoping the use of 'literally drive you crazy' was implying someone was texting while driving and collided with a mental hospital?

To really drive yourself crazy... try Grindr.

The only thing that drives me crazy about Facebook is how friends can't go 5 seconds without showing off their <= 3 year old crotchspawn. I'd hate to see what would happen if FB were down for a week.

As a comedian once put it, "THE YEAR IS 2016. FACEBOOK DOWN FOR TWO YEARS NOW. AMERICA'S NEW MOMS ROAM THE STREETS. IS MY BABY PRETTY? THEY SAY. PLEASE LIKE MY BABY. "

Sometimes I have a quip or a snark buried inside me that needs to burst out.

That's what Twitter is for, in my experience.

E.G., "Some things are impossible to know. But it is impossible to know these things."

Wow, that was fun.

I finally caved and got Twitter for shameless self-promotion, telling myself I didn't really have a social media account, Science Isn't Scary did.

It's since degenerated into snarkery.  I live-tweeted Sharknado 2.  I don't think I'd've enjoyed it nearly as much without an audience to entertain.

If I have some inane social commentary that is just bursting to get out because there's no other human being to release on, it's off to fark I go.

Yeah I noticed one new mother actually hadn't posted a picture of her kid at all. At first I wondered what was wrong then I realized she was just being decent.

Sounds like she had mental health problems then used Twitter
 
2014-08-09 08:21:16 PM
So she thinks celebrities and organizations were using social media to reach out to a her and others, like marketing or something?! Kray-Z

The study is clearly flawed.  Studies require control groups.  You can't control for preexisting mental problems in users of services that are by their very nature only used by those with mental problems.

That those with untreated mental problems would become worse on average over time... is hardly surprising and thus blaming Facebook/Twitter/etc for this is pure speculation.

Now if you want something that can actually harm the mental health of previously mentally healthy individuals... Rush Limbaugh (etc), Redstate (etc), and things of that nature.

Well that justifies my not being on either site
