Twitter is the devil. Social media is used the wrong way a lot more than it’s uesd the right way. That’s the way I feel. I feel it’s a bunch of nonsense most of the time. I just laugh at a lot of stuff as I see it — I’m not really on Twitter as much as I used to be. I even deleted it once and came back. I saw it as, ‘I’m wasting time” basically. You could be doing a lot better things — I can be reading a book, shooting more jump shots — a lot of things better than looking at what people are saying that probably isn’t true in the first place.
