Most hated technologies: Tumblr & Twitter
Date: Nov. 7, 2011
Considering Aubrey's massive online following, it's surprising to hear one of his biggest fears is a blogging site. Twitter, on the other hand, speaks for itself. In his cover story with The Source, Drizzy talks about social media sites being used as a measuring stick to define popularity: “I’m really scared for my generation, you know. The thing that scares me most is Tumblr. I hate what Tumblr has become...it reminds me of those clique-y girls in high school that used to make fun of everyone else and define what was cool, but in five years, when you all graduate, that shit doesn’t matter.” He also talks about catching feelings after reading a tweet targeted at his mother: “I remember, it was on twitter. I remember the day my mom was getting surgery and someone came on Twitter and they were like, ‘Yo, Drake, I hope your mom dies.’ You don’t really mean that." That's cold.
