Social Media brings us closer every day. Unfortunately, that closeness includes exes and haters. On Facebook, these moves are fair game. But if this were real life we’d call the cops

The Passive-Aggressive Poster

Post a selfie, this person writes a status about being self-absorbed. Complain about work, they post a prayer about being grateful to have a job. It’s like having an obnoxious shadow that throws salt on everything you say.

Did She Take It Too Far? Kenya Moore Responds To Apollo’s 8-Year Sentence

Being that Kenya and Apollo had such a tense relationship, marred by inappropriate flirting and then vicious shade throwing at the reunion, it’s no surprise that today, when news of Apollo’s 8 year prison sentence broke, that Kenya would have something to say about her former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast mate. She took to Twitter to express her feelings and sympathies, with just an ounce of “I told you so.”

I’m never one to ride for Kenya and her antics, but I have to give this round to her. At the reunion when Apollo claimed that he made her and suggested that she put money on his books during his inevitable imprisonment, everyone turned their noses up in disgust. Where did this dude get off?! Sure the mess between the two of them was a big part of her storyline but trust and believe, Kenya has no problem finding numerous ways to create drama for herself, with or without Apollo. We’re sure she’ll be fine and continue to thrive in the messiness that is reality tv. And while people called it the shade of the century, I even felt a way when Phaedra came after her saying her future child could be fathered by a crazy murderer man who donated just so he could afford a pizza. Low blow. But seeing as how both Apollo and Kenya’s future criminal baby daddy might just run into each other in prison, Phaedra doesn’t have a whole lot of room to talk. 

What do you think about Kenya’s response? Should have taken this opportunity to take an additional dig or was it well deserved after all Apollo and Phaedra had to say about her?

If you’ve ever followed Roland Martin on Twitter for just a few minutes. You know he’s known for making some very inflammatory statements against…just about everyone. We all remember the David Beckham fiasco. And today, as he arrived in New Orleans for the Essence Festival, Martin thought it would be a good idea to offer up a bit of advice for the ladies out there trying to stunt. It was a part of his #RolandsRules hashtag and it was supposed to be all in good fun but given the source, Twitter was not here for it. See what he had to say and the swift and brutal response on the following pages.

Tweet & Shop? Twitter Tests Out ‘Buy Now’ Button For Social Shopping

I never really connected shopping with Twitter, but pretty soon you may be able to shop right on your Twitter timeline. On Monday, a new “Buy now” button popped up on various tweets, all of which included goodies that link back to shopping site Fancy, reports Mashable. The button only appeared on mobile. It didn’t appear on Twitter’s web version.

Tech news site Re/code first discovered the tweets, but the button didn’t work. So it looks like Twitter is just testing out the idea of entering into offering e-commerce services.

“The tweets, which no longer appear in the form captured by Re/code, gave a possible glimpse into Twitter’s plans for creating a new revenue source. So far, the social media site has relied on sponsored tweets, essentially advertising, to make money, but Wall Street wants more,” reports CNet.

When asked for a comment by Mashable, Twitter did not immediately respond. But Twitter’s entry into e-commerce has long been rumored. According to a  Wall Street Journal report from April, multiple ad types were on the way for Twitter, including shop-able Twitter ads. And Twitter put its toe in the water when Amazon launched a similar shopping feature on Twitter. “The e-commerce giant now lets users put things in their shopping carts by tweeting #AmazonCart in response to any tweets with an Amazon product link,” reports CNet.

Twitter isn’t the only social media sites considering — or have tried — social shopping. Facebook tried and failed with Facebook Gifts for example. Social networks, with their viral component and the ability to add photos and clips, could attract online shoppers. Though we’ll have to see if consumers are ready to go shopping when they’re just doing a little leisurely tweeting.

If Twitter does actually roll out a shopping option let’s see how it plans on enticing you to spend your money.
