Ryan Seacrest caught up with Lena Dunham on the Golden Globes red carpet tonight and she briefly mentioned having to tune out all the sociopaths on Twitter. Like a sane human being, she now never checks it. Except sometimes.

I check it occasionally, but it's not the same co-dependence Twitter and I once shared. It's the dark side of the Internet. There's a lot of people I love on Twitter, but unfortunately you can't read those without reading deranged Neocons telling you you should be buried under a pile of rocks.

I see the shit so many non-famous women go through on twitter, so I can't blame her for this decision. The men (YEAH IT'S MOSTLY MEN SO FUCK OFF IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE REALITY) who just...GO AFTER women on twitter...sometimes I think they all have to be 12, right? Like who has the time? But then you sadly learn most of them *are* 20 and over. I can't imagine hating something so much to devote that much time to it.
