Sweet noddles, Twitter might be coming to an end. I’m purposely trying to avoid all of these stories coming out about it because I feel as if the less I know, the better.
I don’t use Facebook, have Snapchat reserved for my friends, and I’m not a fan of Instagram. So fingers crossed, the silly little bird app will continue to be a thing. Follow me there @OKrepps85.
