We encourage your suggestions for tweets. You can send them to us by @ reply or DM.
We follow back every human who follows us,
just to make DM's possible. (We don't actually
read the feed from this account. We only read @ mentions and DMs.)
"Young People" is defined as anyone younger than you — preferable
your own younger self! We publish tweets from all phases of youth!
Tweets in this feed have be things that PEOPLE ACTUALLY SAY (as opposed to
what they might be thinking). If you can't picture someone saying it with full
earnestness, it probably doesn't belong here.
It is hard to define what kind of tweets belong in this feed, but
youth often involves naivete coupled with absurd self-confidence,
untested by outside reality. Idealistic but narcissistic.
Absolutely certain yet privately insecure. Young people insist they are
grown-ups yet still cling to the illusions of childhood. Think about it
a little and you can probably remember something you use to say that now
makes you cringe. When that happens, send it to us!
Ideally, tweets here should have a certain universal quality that applies to everyone at
any period in history. However, we may also accept tweets the reflect modern naivete
(like things people would say on social media).
Most of these tweets include a logical fallacy or self-deception
of some kind. See if you can
If you send us a suggestion and we find it worthy, we will published it without
attribution. (It would disrupt the flow of the feed if we tried to give people credit
directly.) Instead, we will acknowledge your participation in the "Credits" section
If you send us a suggestion via @ reply, we will acknowledge receiving it by "favoriting" it (starring it). This is an acknowledgment only and does not imply that
we will publish the suggestion.
There are NO REPEATS in this feed. (We will not knowingly repeat the same tweet twice.)
However, we may repeat the same idea in slightly different words.
