Tweets are definitely Instagram! Everybody knows that!

The first time that I remember hearing about Instagram it was a silly girl about whom I periodically tell stories. She said that it was like Facebook, but all pictures, no words! I just stared at her.

She said that like it was a good thing.

So, you post a picture without saying anything, people just like and\or share without commenting?

Well comments are cancer...

what would she say about Tik Tok? I had no opinion so I went to Wikipedia.

All I got for Christmas were dried bugs! I showed them! I ate them!

Someone told me to post the video on Tick Tock, but my brother-in-law said that it was Chinese spyware.

Then again, I saw a news article about creepy men using it to watch underaged girls.

Either way, that is Mos-Eisley-level class.

Recently started getting robocalls that are voice activated, as in, their recording does not start until a human voice is detected- answering machine message doesn't trigger them. So if I decide to answer instead of letting it go to the answering machine, I pick up and listen in total silence. A person will probably say something; scambot hangs up after about 10 seconds.

The scam constantly evolves.

I do not answer out-of-state numbers, but we often get in-state numbers and thick accents.

We ditched the landline in 2002. The phone company recommended we get a cell phone so we did.

I had a cell phone for a while; it was nice but it wasn't necessary enough to justify the cost. I get net via landline so there's that synergy.

Mom would be lost without her child's plaything. My sister is renewing her vows soon and is hiring a photographer. I will borrow said plaything because silly people with iPhones are a known obstacle to photographers.

I didn't attend her actual wedding. Do I really need to attend this?
