“I comment on my old Instagram posts with insults. I hope nobody sees them because they’re really pathetic but I don’t delete them, either.” – ANON.
“I only use Twitter for two lists, Buddhist quotes in the morning, which I retweet to show how spiritual I am, and amateur porn at night in a private list under a fake name that I obsessively ensure I don’t like or interact with by accident and that I feel shameful about. Like the worst.” – ANON.
“I use insta-stories.ru and storiesig.com—extremely sketchy websites—to anonymously check the Instagram Stories of my ex, his wife, his best friend, and also my previous ex and my previous ex’s fiancee. I do this rotation usually once a day, on my worst days sometimes like three times?” – ANON.
“The fact that I have four twitter accounts and my therapist frequently begins my sessions with, “so how have you been handling social media lately?” probably says everything.” – ANON.
“I take my laptop everywhere (to dinner, concerts, picnics at the park). I get separation anxiety leaving it at home. I tell people it’s because I’m so busy and need to be able to hop online at any time, but really it’s just because I like the numbness of being behind a screen.” – ANON.
“I say I ‘hate’ social media–I say I don’t want to see drama (true)–but my main reason is that I don’t want to see things that might upset me, like the woman liking my husband’s posts. So I hide and it causes me shame like I’m avoiding reality. Sigh…I’m a loser.” – ANON.
“Social media’s one of my strangest addictions because I don’t see the immediate negative effects even though it’s like sticking my dick in a blender. That stupid blue checkmark makes me feel more important than I am and brings out the terrible side of me I’ve worked so hard to kill. I want to quit, and have set numerous limits on my devices to remind myself to log off, yet I ignore them. If my tweets don’t get enough traction, I delete them. That’s gross.” – ANON.
