  1. Hank Vandenburgh says:

    Twitter changes your “affect?”

    • Omar Shaukat says:

      Yes, it actually does. I guess most readers would think right off the bat that the title is a typo, but I’d like to think that I know the difference between affect and effect. At least I would hope I do. I was speaking of affect in the psychological / mental point of view — how Twitter can change one’s sense of perception and sense of self.

      The title has since been revised as to not lead to anymore confusion.
