Correction: They did follow @sosadtoday, as recently as a few days ago when we talked about all this on the podcast. Apparently, that has changed now. @hopeless doesn't follow @sosadtoday anymore. I sincerely hope it wasn't something I said, but just in case, here's a tweet to express how this change makes me feel.
In either case, what these accounts produce looks like the inner monologue of your 14-year-old goth niece turned into a social media feed. No links, no images, no videos, just shit like this ...
Or maybe they read your tweets?
... all goddamn day long, and people can't get enough of it. Almost every tweet gets hundreds of retweets and likes, or whatever Twitter is calling them now.
Oh, and also, I'm sure it's just a coincidence, but in the days since that aforementioned podcast went live, @hopeless has added to their repertoire of downers by retweeting the depressing words of others. They even mixed it up a bit by retweeting a picture of Selena Gomez.
I stared at this for a long time trying to figure out what's so depressing about it.
Holy shit, what if @hopeless is Justin Bieber? All that talk about missing someone followed up with an out-of-nowhere pic of the Biebs' former love interest? That would make perfect sense and, to be honest, is most likely the exact explanation for what's going on here. It's a noble effort for sure, but one that I guarantee is doomed to fail. Why? Because if that "Sorry" song didn't bring her back ...
