To paraphrase Lydia Lunch

is vampire; a mass of suckling vortex where the magnitude of personal insignificance is replaced by a fraudulent over-importance.

Not even a cog in the wheel; the ghost in the machine. No social media needs you. You need it; like a drug, an artificial stimulant which accelerates the pulse ...

@pimoore She was actually describing New York city - but it works so well with social media.
