Twitter: Don't you dare tweet your mom for Mother's Day
A PSA from Twitter tells kids in no uncertain terms that Mom is worth more than a tweet. Yes, she's worth a call.
You know how you love tweeting? You know how Twitter is the epicenter of your universe, the medium of your message?
Well, Sunday is Mother's Day and Twitter has a message for you: Don't tweet.
At least, don't even think of tweeting your mom to wish her Happy Mother's Day.
How do I know this? Well, Twitter released a PSA (yes, crises such as this need a PSA) to explain to you (boys) that momma deserves more than a tweeted hug and kiss.
To use Twitter's own words, if you are thinking of tweeting your mom to tell you that you love her: "What the f*** are you doing?"
Your mom deserves more (parenthetical thought: your mom's probably not on Twitter anyway).
But what does she deserve, at least according to Twitter? She deserves a call.
Yes, that's it. No flowers, no gifts, no surprise visit.
Your mom deserves a call, because "you don't need the Internet for everything."
It is established, therefore, that a call is more personal than Twitter.
It's touching that Twitter would have the self-awareness and self-deprecation to recognize the moments for which its own service is inappropriate.
However, perhaps it still needs to work on considering that it might be wise to send a tweet, a gift, call and make a surprise visit.
Surely, moms deserve all the love they can get.
