Frisky Rant: Stop Calling Social Media Managers “Professional Tweeters”

I met a man last night who, upon telling him that I’m a Social Media Manager, replied by saying, “So you’re a professional tweeter. Aren’t all girls?” Not only was his comment sexist and untrue (so don’t even get me started on that), but if I were a goddamn professional tweeter, I would have said…

The beauty of being a grown-up is that when you get cravings, you have the ability and means to drive yourself to the store (or, in my case, McDonald’s) to immediately satisfy those cravings. No such luck for three-year-old Connor.

Child Draws All Over Dad’s Passport On Business Trip, Strands Them Both In South Korea

When I was just a young, crayon-happy little blondie, my mother thought it was the cutest thing when I drew on anything— even more so when I signed my work with a backwards ‘K’ and upside-down ‘E’. The less legible it was, the more precious. Unfortunately, one Chinese businessman will no longer experience that joy whe…
