Doomsday becomes a confession day on Twitter
December 21, 2012 is here and we are very much alive. Many doomsday believers had feared otherwise, as they believed in the Mayan calendar, which had predicted that the world would end today. Though nothing like that has happened and people - both believers and non-believers - have taken to Twitter, to post their feelings.

THE MAYAN calendar does not have dates beyond December 21, 2012, so people were waiting for the day and see how it eventually turns out. This was not the first instance, when such rumours, predicting the end of the world, did the rounds. It happened in 1910 as well when it was believed that the mother earth would be doused in toxic gas. Neither did it happen in 1910 nor in 2012.

Tweeple, always creative when it came to expressing themselves, couldn’t resist poking fun at the failed prediction of Mayan calendar and the result – “endoftheworldconfessions” hashtag started trending worldwide on the micro-blogging platform.

Many people tweeted about their personal lives and some of their confessions were actually interesting. “my tattoo isn't real, I've been drawing it on every day for almost 4 years,” read a Tweet from a user with handle @luis_saladbar . So next time you see a person with a tattoo, ask him – is it real? While another tweet with Twitter handle, ‏@MoodyOnion read, “If you let me swim in your pool over the last 17 years. I've peed in time to judge now.”

Most of us are naughty during our childhood and do things which make us laugh when we think about them now. Some may associate with this tweet from @MichaelYork, which read, “I got kicked out of preschool for standing on the table and peeing on everyone...” On the same lines, another user @ConnorCompau tweeted, “mom, remember all those times I said I was staying after school. Yeah I was smoking weed.”

“I told a girl at McDonald's that I had diabetes and my blood sugar was low so I could get free ice cream,” @CHODE_GOD tweeted. Another tweet by @Instaband_Kazy read, “I eat grapes from the grocery store without paying for them”. Some people even took this chance to declare their fear as well. “When I'm the last one downstairs I run up the stairs because I feel like theres an evil presence behind me...,”tweeted @marissa_paskell.

But, there were some who were sure that the world would not come to an end so they were clever enough not to confess anything, as it could have serious implications and their confession could become hot trending topics among their friend circle. Some of them used the hashtag to advise people, on the contrary. A user with handle @lori_nicolex3 tweeted, “you hooligans better watch what you confess, y'all are gonna have some explaining to do tomorrow!” In a similar manner, another one read, “The world is not ending stop confessing your secrets it’s embarrassing,” @GopalSebastian tweeted.
