Profile #2

X's Twitter acts as a chronological documentation of his interactions (both online and in "real life") as well as a selective use of memes and humour to act as selective quasi-social commentary. The account, in some senses, documents his association with aspects of popular culture and his presence in prevalent subcultures, evidencing a distinct frustration and anger coupled with a reproach for specific prevalent behaviours. It, at times, uses the medium of "the tweet" as an extension of ordinary human interactions, though meaning is instead mediated through removing pictures and phrases with established connotations and meanings from the very situations that give them that purpose.
