Emily Maynard's Twitter picFor those of you hoping that the Emily Maynard/Jef Holm breakup rumors are just that -- rumors -- you might want to close your eyes. This is about to get ugly.
Both Emily and Jef have changed their default Twitter photos. I'll pause so you have time to collect yourself .... Crazy, right? If that isn't evidence that these two have called it quits, I don't know what is.
For those of you not active in the social media scene A) congratulations, and B) let me explain what this means. See, a few weeks ago, both Jef and Emily had a photo of the two of them together as their "profile" picture on their Twitter accounts. Now? Now they both have solo shots. I mean, they may as well just get into a public screaming match that ends with someone yelling the sentence: "We are never, ever, ever getting back together." Classic T-Swift humor.
Guys, this is the world we live in now. It's sad, I know. But these days we can't just break up with a person like normal human beings have done since the beginning of time. There's no more having a talk with your significant another, deciding it's time to end things, then having everyone find out by word of mouth. You need to change out profile photos, update relationship statuses, and delete any and all photos of you and said person. It's exhausting. And when you think about it, it's kind of ridiculous.
Technology has pretty much made it easy to erase people from our lives. Including significant others. In the past, we had to physically get rid of pictures of us and old boyfriends/girlfriends. It was harder. It took more. Now? We just have to hit delete, and then "change profile photo." And there are no phone calls to make. No telling people "we broke up." Everyone just knows by looking at your Twitter or Facebook page. There's really nothing very personal about the process at all.
So, Jef. Emily. Hope you both are doing okay. Because even if you haven't officially announced your breakup yet, we know it's true. A Twitter photo change is as good as a press release.
Do you think Emily and Jef broke up?
