Some people say that Twitter is worthless, but I beg to differ.
As a Millennial, one invaluable service that I can rely on Twitter to deliver is giving me an endless and comprehensive list of what I should NOT consider to be a personality trait.
I gather these carefully, print them out on my dot-matrix, and compile them into a sort of vision board to help me focus. Or at least I did, until I was informed that having a vision board was not a personality trait, and subsequently burned it in ritualistic fire.
Here are some more things to avoid, lest ye be basic.
18. TikTok hate
It’s gonna be fascinating to see a whole generation of people mortified by their old TikToks once they hit their late 20’s.
hey millennials! hating on tiktok isn’t a personality trait 🥴 go back to being a “dog mom” and stanning harry potter
