Suggestion: love/use social media without acting like a crazy person
You know I'm all for your obsession with Internet-based communications tools. When used thoughtfully and purposefully, new media platforms like Twitter, Facebook—and enabling Smartphones and tablets—can do wonders for your productivity and social life.
