Sometimes you just have to unfollow someone

In any other industry, Rinoa would probably be known as a "scenester."  As far as i know, she's never really won anything.  She doesn't write for any website (though she was at GotFrag for a while just before i left), and doesn't manage a team.  Yet she's pretty well known, as her 5,000 followers on Twitter can attest to.  Hell, i can't stand DoTA games and even i followed her until two minutes ago.

She's always been fairly friendly to me during the few interactions we've shared.  But honestly, her Twitter and Facebook feeds remind me of why a large part of me despises "Social Media."  I quote:

"Lots of people ask me what eyeliner I use! Maybelline Ultra Liner waterproof liquid on the top and MAC Powerpoint engraved pencil for bottom"

Yep, time to click that shiny red "unfollow" button.  I find it genuinely depressing that people actually want to read this shit.  I've generally avoided following "real" celebrities on Twitter, using it mostly for just esports and Magic.  If Rinoa is our version of Victoria Beckham (albeit, a much more likeable version) then i'm convinced that i am using Twitter correctly by avoiding those ego-maniacs.

Then again, at least she doesn't talk about fuckign smart phones 24/7.
