Once upon a time in a land where social media got shut off by the government to protect the human race from becoming completely immersed in their devices, there was a young teen that goes by the name Trent. Trent was a SoundCloud rapper that had a 100 followers that meant everything to him. If he didn't have his SoundCloud "fame" he would have nothing... Except for everything else in his life. One day he went downstairs to find out something terrible had happened.

"Yo whats popping b," asked Trent Angrily?

"Just cooking dinner sweety," his mom replied.

"Did you turn the internet off?f"

"No why?"

"My social media isn't working!"

His mom looked at him and wondered what he was talking about. A few minutes passed where Trent was just staring and looking at his phone till he overheard the TV saying, "In other news, the government has shut down social media apps and this is causing an outrage from teens and adults across the country of USA." 

"No... No... Noooooooo. Why does this have to happen to me? Whats happening, my followers."

Trent dropped to the ground dramatically as his mom watched. 

"Whats going on honey" his mom questioned"

"Social media," he said!

"What about it?"

"Its gone" 

"I think its good that it's gone," she said with a smile.

"What!"

"Now kids will finally go outside and enjoy the fresh air."

"WHAT, SOCIAL MEDIA IS MY LIFE" Trent yelled.

Trent instantly ran outside and bolted to one of his friend's house, he knocked. No one responded so he tried to open the door and it was unlocked so he just went in. When inside he saw his friend staring at his phone in a dead stare. Trent walked up to him and saw that his phone was dead. It almost seemed like he had been looking at his phone for minutes or maybe hours.

"George... GEORGE" Trent said getting more aggressive each time.

There was no response, i think he was dead... or he just passed out with his eyes open.
