Thanks to a survey in 2012 by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project,it’s been proven that Black people use social media like Twitter and Instagram more than Whites and Latinos. This is such an interesting statistic and it led me to thinking–why are Black people all over Twitter and Instagram? I’ve got a few theories:

1. Public Shyte-Talking:

Black people have been playing “The Dozens” since before the internet was ever a thing. Twitter made the these “slam books” a popular, real-time Shyte-talking session. Often times, you can find various conversations that start with a subtweet and end with two users going back and forth until the other logs off.
