Maybe it’s the nature of writers that we’re apt to take to venting our feelings on social media. Frustrating mornings, horrible outfits, airline hassles, even the worst date ever can all be made better with some conciliatory remarks from online pals (a.k.a., friendly strangers) and a handful of likes.
