Last week #5WordAdviceForTeens was trending on Twitter. Tweets ranged from practical advice to various political support.
To kick things off:
There's nothing cool about socialism.
Gender Studies is completely useless.
Donald Trump is your president.
Stop being offended by everything.
David Hogg is a bully.
There are only two genders.
PLEASE stop eating tide pods.

A few things stand out in the above tweet, but what sticks out most is “There are only two genders.” With a big push to be accepting of different gender classifications, this tweet is a surprising viewpoint from someone who labels themselves as gay.
Young ladies don't send nudes. #5WordAdviceForTeens

This tweet came across two different ways. One — young women shouldn’t trust too easy. Two — It’s repressing young women from being comfortable and confident with their bodies.
Look up from your screens #5WordAdviceForTeens

This seems ironic on Twitter but it’s advice people need. Technology has become a large part of society and it’s hard to put the phone down when there’s constant notifications.

Social media has us connected to so many people. We associate a person’s importance with how many followers they have and mistake that for real life.

One movement picking up steam following the Parkland, Florida shooting is #VoteThemOut, which refers to voting out politicians that take money from the National Rifle Association.

And lastly, shout out to those who just want safer roads.
