I thoroughly enjoyed Jen Hatmaker's "If Social Media Weren't Around" chapter in For the Love so I'm writing my version of it.
Let's pretend that I got a Twitter account at age 13. This is what it might look like:
@KelliSkywalker 12/16/1995 I turn 13 today! Woo hoo! My obsession with Luke Skywalker has gone on too long. I hope they make more Star Wars movie in the future #firsttweet #hessohot #starwarsforlife
@KelliSkywalker 3/10/1996 I have a new boyfriend. But I'm too embarrassed to hold his hand. He did smile at me the other day. #7thgrade #mycrush
@KelliSkywalker 3/24/1996 And we broke up. #2weeks
@KelliSkywalker 4/2/1996 I just got new scrunchy socks and scrunchies for my hair! Awesome!
@JTTforLife 7/16/1996 Just got back from Alto Frio Church Camp. God is awesome! We are all Jesus Freaks! And Tracy met a guy named Chris Johnson. He's cute. #altofrio #shegavehimarock #GodRocks #DCTalk #JesusFreak #InTheLight

@RunningIsLife 12/31/1999 People say the world might end tonight. Or computers are going to freak out. I don't even know how to type well yet so I don't really care. Dustin and I are together for a third time so I don't have time for petty issues. #getreal #Y2K
