Oh man, if only we could mandate half of the people we know on Twitter and Facebook to do this.
A Philadelphia judge has ordered rapper Meek Mill to complete a series of etiquette classes to “refine his use of social media” at a probation violation hearing (for drug and gun charges) last week.
A cursory glance at Meek’s Twitter reveals that the rapper is prone to tweeting explicit recommendations for female behavior which, while gross, isn’t much worse than the kind of stuff half the pimply teen boys across America post to their various social media outlets daily.
If we could sentence the most egregious social media offenders we know to etiquette classes, there are a few lessons we’d like to see included on the syllabus.
Lesson one, there is literally nobody who is eager to see pictures of the flowers your “super sweet hubby” brought home/of your cat/of the chicken you grilled for dinner/of you making pouty faces in a bathroom mirror. Lesson two, if you think it might be TMI — it is. Lesson three, if you think it isn’t TMI — it is. Class dismissed.
