"On the Internet, I freeze up the way I used to at camp when I was ten or eleven, eating dinner with a group of girls whose sophistication and rapid-fire banter I sought in vain to match. Someone I admire from a distance tweets something at me, and I feel like the kid who has just been assigned lab partner of the most popular girl in school, who wants desperately to make a good impression but is terrified of saying the wrong thing."- author Adelle Waldman on social media shyness in Vogue
