my actual writing, if you're curious

Someone’s argument with a flight attendant, their breakup with their partner, or their phone conversation with their mom — it may be amusing to you as you overhear it, but that doesn’t make it fair game for the entire internet to stick their noses in the private affairs of a poor unsuspecting random individual. When did we decide that an average, unsuspecting person deserves to have their private life exposed on the internet? Why does anyone deserve that fate? Do we not have a right to have conversations with our families, friends, and colleagues without strangers meddling, judging, taking sides, and mocking?

For better or for worse, people still have different public and private personas. For all the time spent lamenting about how this generation overshares everything on social media, most people are still very protective of their privacy and choose what to make public via social media and what to keep private. Live-tweeting people’s conversations has quickly become a source of entertainment and a way to gain Twitter followers and 5 seconds of internet fame — but it’s unethical and unfair to regular people to broadcast their lives to an audience against their will.
