lordy lordy i can see that leading to problems. it would play straight into the obsessiveness and perfectionistic listing that comes with eds.

I've also heard of a scale that can send your weight directly to your twitter account as an update. If anyone I know started doing that nonsense, I would immediately UNFOLLOW.

Then again (regarding who would want to read people's food logs...), has anyone else been a member of a pro-ana site that has a section for food logs?? I know that I've read those out of curiosity, and people stop by other people's accounts regularly to give support. (To be completely honest, I kept a log at one point. It was NOT good for me at all. NOT recommended.) My point is just that I'm sure there are groups of people who DO read each other's twitter food logs. I don't think that's normal behavior, though.

I read recently in a magazine that a good way to cut back on excessive or unneccesairy spending was to tweet everytime you buy something and how much it cost so that others will read and respond and it will make you think more before you buy something... just thought that was interesting similarity.. and how little people take responsibilty for their own actions and expect and try to force others to monitor them...
