twitter4Wake up. Instantly check Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. It’s a pattern that our generation goes through every morning. It’s no secret how much social media has taken over our lives and how addictive it can be. Although these media sites may be looked down upon at times, they’re a great way to stay connected to friends and what you’re passionate about.

In the cutthroat magazine industry, it’s important to stay constantly updated.  With social media, especially Twitter, it makes it even easier to stay connected and up-to-date on the latest fashion trends, gossip, sports team, or news story.
