Textapania

Do you feel a small twitch inside when you are about to send or receive a text message?

You may not be alone.

In fact, many people experience all sorts of emotions when they are feeling alone, bored, or otherwise not occupied.

I often wonder if WhatsApp is where friendships go to die. Certainly feels like there is a disparity, a time stamp and double checkmark worry story.

Do you find this? >|<

Maybe it’s good. Maybe it’s not. But an observation from the WhatsApp in me. It is exponential logarithmic and asymptotal in nature. A ramp up in excitement similar to a hype cycle, a peak into a dip – bridge like musical interlude, a cadence and slow stall – temporary parting – and then reconnection into cycle #n+1.

She’d understand, in theory – she does.
