I don’t tend to follow a lot of people on social media, but one who I could remember is Nick Mullen, an American comic and actor.
I first knew him from YouTube clips of his stand-up comedy work, where he came off as a frequent face of the New York comedy scene. And through YouTube, I also learned of his podcast and social media account on Twitter. It turns out that Nick has an even larger following on the Internet. Fortunately, Nick doesn’t separate his Twitter presence into a personal account and public account like so many people, so it’s easier to catch up with his thoughts at any time.
Nick’s posts on his Twitter feed consist almost entirely of jokes, save for the few posts where he advertises his tour dates. The jokes are exhilarating for being a combination of satire, pop culture knowledge and Internet culture. However, they might be off-putting to people who haven’t been on the Internet for a long time, as these people will have a harder time seeing what’s funny in Nick’s jokes. Still, the posts are apolitical and without any severity, which might explain why so many people follow Nick.
All in all, Nick’s Twitter is a source of comedic relief on the virtual space. I’d definitely say that it’s a refreshing breeze of wind on social media, which is frequently flooded with depressing and humorless information.
- Comic (n.): danh hài
- Stand-up comedy (n.): hài độc thoại
- Come off as (v.): có vẻ là
- Following (n.): lượng người hâm mộ

- Satire (n.): trào phúng
- Pop culture (n.): văn hóa đại chúng
- Off-putting (adj.): gây phản cảm
- Apolitical (adj.): không mang tính chính trị

I think this is true, but only to a certain extent. Older people and younger people will use the same kind of social networking apps to communicate with each other, but the youth will be using different software to talk among themselves. This is already the case with people I know. Friends my age would use a certain Vietnamese app to keep in touch with their older relatives and family members, but when they need to catch up with other young adults, Messenger, which is an international app, tends to be the place.
- Keep in touch (v.): giữ liên hệ
- Catch up (v.): cập nhật thông tin
I don’t think so, because they belong to a different time, before social media was a thing. They learned to pick up actual hobbies and interests, and so their use of time is better. However, with the situation being almost everybody owning a presence on the Internet, I think there are always exceptions to what I said earlier. Social media can be very tempting to anybody regardless of age.
- Own (v.): sở hữu
- Exception (n.): ngoại lệ
- Tempting (adj.): cám dỗ, thu hút
I think the main difference between them lies in the diversity of contributors. On mass media, only the reporters may provide the news, and even then the information has to be edited and cut up before it’s displayed, so what’s presented is far from being the entire picture.
Meanwhile, on social media, anybody can be a source of information, so there is a more diverse interpretation of events, and as a result, the truth is usually somewhere in between. However, this is also why social media news is more prone to having false claims. I’m putting this out there anyway because I’m quite partial to social media and I haven’t actively watched TV for years.
- Lie in (v.): nằm trong
- Interpretation (n.): sự diễn giải
- Prone to sth (adj.): dễ làm điều gì đó
- Partial to sth (adj.): thiên vị điều gì đó
