The Social Media Diet: How to Hashtag Your Way to Healthy

The Social Media Diet: How to Hashtag Your Way to Healthy | SocialMediaTwitter | Scoop.it

Twitter is for more than just your clever musings—it could be the key to your new diet plan

 

 

 Pone step further: Create your own daily hashtags as a system for developing healthy habits. Your hashtags (whether you actually post them or not) morph into a way of thinking, a daily ideal that you strive for, rather than a strict game plan. In the end, as you develop these habits, you’ll develop a varied and effective approach to help you reach your goals. Some suggestions to get you started:

 

#StrategizeSunday

Plan the week, figure out most meals, identify vulnerable times, make sure healthy snacks are in the house, office, and car for hunger emergencies. Not recommended: #LargeChocolateSundae

#MostlyMeatMonday

A day you’ll commit to only eating leaner protein (chicken, turkey, fish, sirloin) and vegetables to help scale back refined carbs and simple sugars. Not recommended: #MillionsOfMeatballsMonday

#TryItTuesday

Your commitment to venture into some new nutritional territory—tasting one new healthy food every week. Kale, quinoa, salmon, beets? When you’ve run out of new foods, transition into new recipes. Not recommended: #TryTenTostadasTuesday

#IWillWorkoutWednesday

On an often-draining day of the week, choose a short workout (no matter your favorite activity) with high levels of intensity to amp your metabolism and your energy. Not recommended: #IWillWaitUntilNextWednesday

#ThirtyThursday

Get up from the desk, sneak out before or after dinner, or do it before the kids get up—a 30-minute walk by yourself or with a trusted companion. For mind and body. Not recommended: #ThirtyOtherThingsICouldDoThursday

#ForgetItFriday

Give in to your favorite temptation (#FryDay!) without guilt. One meal or one indulgence won’t sidetrack you. By creating a structured way to look forward to a so-called sin food, you’ve created a reward system that, if kept in check, can help you stay the course the rest of the week. Not recommended: #ForgetItForeverFriday

#SaturdayMattersDay

Entering the danger zone of the weekend, develop your plan for staying on track even when social pressures make you want to stray. Do an early workout, drink lots of water before a party. It doesn’t mean you can’t indulge, but success is about managing excess. Not recommended: #SixScotchSaturday

See the bizarre direct Twitter messages Ed Schultz sent me at 1:33 a.m. … and then deleted | SocialMediaTwitter | Scoop.it
It all started with a harmless little tweet poking some fun at Ed Schultz. I don’t have that many followers on Twitter, so he could’ve just ignored it and the tweet would’ve been swallowed up, lost in the vast expanse of the twittersphere.

This is how the Internet responds when a porn star is beaten up

This is how the Internet responds when a porn star is beaten up | SocialMediaTwitter | Scoop.it

Last weekend, the adult performer Christy Mack landed in the hospital from injuries sustained during an alleged assault by her ex-boyfriend, the MMA fighter War Machine (a.k.a. Jon Koppenhaver). According to a statement she published on Twitter, Mack is currently hospitalized with a broken nose, 18 broken bones, a fractured rib, a ruptured liver, and several missing and broken teeth. She cannot walk, chew or speak. During the attack, “I believed I was going to die,” she wrote in her statement. (Warning: these photos are extremely graphic and disturbing and NSFW.)

To anyone familiar with the psychology of domestic abuse, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that this was not the first time Koppenhaver, an MMA fighter and former adult performer himself, had assaulted a woman. In 2009, he attacked a former girlfriend at an adult industry party, and he has also tweeted about raping and assaulting Mack. (Both Mack and Koppenhaver claimed it was a joke at the time.)

To anyone familiar with the psychology of Twitter, it also shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that almost immediately after news broke that Mack had landed in the hospital, there was an onslaught of tweets in defense of Koppenhaver, claiming the fighter had caught Mack cheating on him, which justified the attack. (For what it’s worth, Mack has refuted the allegations that she was unfaithful to Koppenhaver on Twitter.)

The news: Toronto-based editor Lyndsay Kirkham has started a firestorm this week after overhearing what was apparently an incredibly sexist conversation between IBM executives at lunch — and live-tweeting it. Unaware that they were transmitting sexist nonsense to cyberspace, the IBM executives openly discussed "why they don't hire women." If you take Kirkham's account at its word, it actually gets way worse.

Horrifying Twitter trend mocks a teenage girl whose rape went viral | SocialMediaTwitter | Scoop.it
Jada, a 16-year-old girl in Houston, Texas, was recently raped at her classmate’s house after she says she blacked out during a party. If that wasn’t horrifying enough, she found out she was raped after she spotted videos and photos of her taken of her during the rape on her social media feed. And if that wasn’t horrifying enough, people are now mocking her rape by tweeting photos of themselves lying down in a splayed position as Jada does in the video, with the hashtag #jadapose.
