Is the Internet Broken?

By |2021-07-22T14:49:25-04:00July 22nd, 2021|Categories: Other Perspectives|Tags: , , , |

It's the end of the world as we know it, just kidding. A glitch in our internet infrastructure has caused many to panic, but I'm here to clear up any confusion about why this happened and discuss what Twitter is saying about it in this social media round-up.

Movie Revenue Post Pandemic

By |2021-07-12T17:49:28-04:00July 12th, 2021|Categories: Other Perspectives|Tags: , , , , |

Slowly movie theaters have been opening back up thanks to the Covid-19 vaccine. Furthermore, the pandemic has made it hard to gauge whether or not movies as we once knew them will return. So I decided to take a look at Twitter and assess the number of people going to the theaters versus the number of people using Primier Access to watch the new Marvel movie called Black Widow and make a prediction about the future of movie theaters and at-home streaming. 

#DearIntern & Twitter

By |2021-06-25T12:48:48-04:00June 25th, 2021|Categories: Other Perspectives|Tags: , , , , |

Dear Intern is trending on Twitter, and for those who don't know, people are using it as an opportunity to share the embarrassing mistakes they've made while at work. Concerning the sheer amount of business books we've read at book club that emphasizes the importance of creating and learning from mistakes, I figured I'd share some of these tweets with you all. So let's take a look at this Social Media Round-Up.

Work-Life Balance & Twitter

By |2021-06-11T20:46:32-04:00June 11th, 2021|Categories: Other Perspectives|Tags: , , , , , |

Work-Life Balance has generated quite a bit of buzz. It seems that the younger generation is throwing away the capitalistic mantra of “No Days Off!” and recycling it into "PLEASE, take days off for your health. As a member of Gen-Z, I agree that self-care should come first, not your job. However, I also recognize that self-care should not be an excuse for underdelivering at said job. I figured I would look at what Twitter is saying about Work-Life Balance and share it with you for this week's social media round-up.

Is Florida Covid-Free?

By |2021-06-04T21:27:20-04:00June 4th, 2021|Categories: Other Perspectives|Tags: , , , , |

Is Florida "Covid-Free?" No, but people are sure acting like it. Florida is opening back up, and according to usafacts.org, 39% of Florida's population is COVID-19 vaccinated. I have noticed that most businesses in Florida don't require masks (as long as you're fully vaccinated). I figured that I'd take a look at what Twitter is saying about Florida's Covid-free future.

Miami Tech & Twitter

By |2021-05-14T15:50:00-04:00May 14th, 2021|Categories: Other Perspectives|Tags: , |

Miami Tech is pretty new on the scene, so if you haven't heard about it, let me introduce you to it through Twitter. We've talked about why people are moving to Florida in a recent social media round-up, but we have yet to talk about Miami Tech. From my understanding, Miami Tech is a brand for all the tech people and tech startups located in Miami. There's been an influx of tech-related businesses to south Florida, and people are starting to notice, calling Miami Tech the new silicon valley.

April’s Job Report & Twitter

By |2021-05-10T08:23:13-04:00May 7th, 2021|Categories: Other Perspectives|Tags: , , |

April's job report was released today and shows an increase of 266K jobs filled; unfortunately, this is far below the 1 million jobs that economists predicted. With this new information, America's recovery from the pandemic is more uncertain than ever. People are questioning their allegiance to these economists while debating our leadership's policies. As you can imagine, this news has caused an uproar on Twitter; using the trending tag #JobsReport, #Unemployment, and #+266k will bring you to the front of the action. Today's social media round-up will show both sides of the argument. Let's begin.

President Biden has proposed a new  $1.8 trillion American Families Plan due to the devastating effect that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on American families. To most, this seems to be an excellent thing.

Dogecoin – DogeDay & Elon Musk Recap

By |2021-06-03T01:41:47-04:00April 23rd, 2021|Categories: Other Perspectives|Tags: , , , |

Dogecoin, if you haven't heard of this fabled cryptocurrency, you've been living under a rock. I haven't been able to leave my house or check my phone without hearing about people's experiences with dogecoin. After hearing about people's gains after they invested in dogecoin, my interest was naturally peaked. I decided I would turn to Twitter to help answer some of my questions about this crypto and hopefully answer some of yours. Let's take a dive into this week's social media round-up.

Stimulus Money & Spending Habits

By |2021-04-15T10:22:07-04:00April 15th, 2021|Categories: Other Perspectives|Tags: , , , , , |

Stimulus money, stimulus checks, economic relief payments, no matter what you call it, you know that the world has been waiting for this money. Now, Coronavirus and its effect have been nothing short of devastating; however, I believe the only silver lining might be the stimulus checks. So far Americans, who are eligible, should have received three stimulus checks totaling $3200.00. With all this "unearned" money hitting our bank accounts, it begs the question, "What are people spending their Stimulus Checks on?" Well, I did some digging across Twitter and Tiktok and found some savvy spenders, some not-so-smart spenders, and some that made me laugh out loud. Let's take a look at this social media round-up.
