Having only been on twitter and TwitterMoms a short while, I notice there seems to be a pervasive undercurrent of an almost pop culture type ideology. By far and large, the number of people I see on twitter are always communicating, buy this!, read this!, share this!, watch me!, see me!, listen to me! Everyone is shouting their tweets as loud as they can in attempts to gain exposure for themselves and the resulting notoriety of having a flock of followers; a race as to who has more. One of the worst is PDiddy. He is one of the most narcissistic megalomaniacs I've ever witnessed. He posts on average every 4 minutes routing his readers to everything he views on You Tube, all of the live action recordings of his album development process and asking his readers to vote for him as Twitter King. He also has a nauseating habit of providing blow by blow (pardon the pun) details of his lovemaking (TMI!). It is becoming a narcissistic phenomenon that everyone feels that the whole world wants to know their every move; as if their lives are the embodiment of an epic novel. Dr. Drew Pinsky has just written a book on the current state of our narcissistic culture and the delusional behavior it's cultivating.
