Love and Hip Hop- Male tweeters: Charlandrea Pettis

On November 11, 2013 I watched Love and Hip Hop for the very first time. At first the show seemed pretty boring but as I followed along with the tweets, everything seemed to become more interesting . After reading the tweets before, during and after the show I began to notice quite a few things. The first thing I noticed was that majority of the tweeters were African American females. Majority of their tweets  discussed how men were dogs, how women looked during the show and what they would have done if they were in a certain situation. Throughout the show I found it extremely hard to keep up with the amount of tweets. Once I looked away for literally 1 minute and I was already behind 20 tweets. Another subject I found extremely interesting was the male tweeters. Below I’ve picked out a few tweets that were stated by many male viewers of the show.

As you can see from the tweets majority of the male tweeters thought that viewing the show was only appropriate when your watching it with your girlfriend. Other male tweets suggested that watching the show was a feminine thing to do and those guys who watched it are gay. Male tweeters also emphasized how they felt the show only showed males as jerks, so men should be aware. The men who did actually view the show often commented on the attractiveness of female actors and their body parts. It literally seemed like males were saying the same thing over but in various ways.Overall this was a great experience since I have never used twitter before and it was very cool to see what others had to say about the show.
