Social Media Barrier

I don't understand why people (television people) think the audience wants to sit and listen to them read random twitter and facebook posts during a broadcast. I mean, it is is bad enough that they have "Social Media Specialists" on some of the shows "The Voice", a couple of other reality/competition shows.  But when they start reading them on news casts, during entertainment news, etc., it is really ridiculous.

Obviously, I am not opposed to social media - I use it. I just think there is a time and place for it and I don't really want to PARTICIPATE in television shows. I don't keep my phone in my pocket. I don't use it while I'm sitting at home.  I don't get it. I just think there are times to turn it off.

I think I might be in a dwindling minority.
