Who Needs Social Media, eh?

So you've probably heard about Wetherspoons and their oh-so-bold move of deleting all social media this week. The popular pub chain resides in my heart, I mean, i'll always have a soft spot for Spoons and I personally can completely back their decision to 'ghost' all forms of social media.

Political views aside - as that's what I'm not here to talk about - whatever your opinions are on the current 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump are.
