The advances in technology come with numerous benefits, however, with all benefits come many problems. Social networking has been one of the biggest revolutions in the past decade. Regardless of where a person lives, they can communicate with anyone. MySpace and Facebook have done very well in helping people find romance, new friends, and business partnerships, along with many other things.
The downside to social networking are the ease of arguments being created. MySpace’s biggest controversy came when a girl committed suicide when a prank went wrong. On Facebook, there have been several arguments and fights. Now, with the emergence of Twitter, there are several people engaging in rivalries, also.
Last month, 50 Cent and T.I. infamously battled on Twitter, but Twitter beefs are not simply between rap stars, regular people also get caught up. During an interview with Vlad TV, Young Jeezy recently discussed Twitter beefs. Young Jeezy lost a friend, twenty-five-year-old Kevin James Scott, as a result of a Twitter beef, so he had much to say about the situation.
Read Young Jeezy’s statement about Twitter beef below:
“I just lost a homeboy over Twitter beef so I donâ€™t think itâ€™s no joke, not at all. R.I.P. to Kev. He was a good kidâ€¦I donâ€™t really wanna speak on it because Iâ€™m quite sure itâ€™s still open, but I lost my homeboy and I had to be in the hospital,â€ Young Jeezy explained. â€œI left the club. I got a call, left the club, came to the hospital and I had to sit there with his mother. To yaâ€™ll this shit is [questions], but to me this shit is real. I sat in the room with his mother, his brother. The nurse walked in and she said â€˜Maâ€™am Iâ€™m sorry, you lost your son to multiple gunshot wounds to the chest.â€™ And she walked out and left her to deal with that. And I had to sit there with her and comfort her.”
“I get it. Everybody got an ego. Everybodyâ€™s tough, but I feel like the shit is meant for networking,â€ said Young Jeezy. â€œAnd my thing is these kids gotta know they canâ€™t take this shit and make it a negative. They canâ€™t be fuckinâ€™ killing each other over wordsâ€¦Itâ€™s just crazy to see what these kids are doing today over some internet shit. It almost made me not want to be on Twitter no more and thatâ€™s probably why I havenâ€™t really just been on it because Iâ€™m just like â€˜Damn, what the fuck is going on?”
