Why Do People Tweet Their Breakfast?

Food News

In honor of Breakfast Week on the Kitchn, this is an interesting discussion topic: Is breakfast tweeting just one example of the "endless narcissistic minutiae" that Twitter inspires, or do people actually care that much about what other people ate for breakfast?

Nicola Twilley of Edible Geography muses on the breakfast tweeting trend in a recent post, focusing mostly on the breakfast tweets of Jace Clayton, aka. DJ/rupture, who turned breakfast tweeting into an artform with his exotic (and fake) breakfast menu rundowns. One example: "Tzompantli Krunch Cereal, maize crepe with maguey sap, tacos de sesos, chile-dusted durian, avocado flambe on amaranth crackers."

So, as food lovers, eaters, and cooks, I'm wondering: do you tweet your breakfast? Do you like it when people you follow tweet their breakfast? Tell us why!
