Ireland Baldwin Would Like You To Think Before You Tweet

Before the dawn of social media, we were taught to think before we speak. Now, in 2014 A.T. (After Twitter), that idiom has been modified, and rising model/personality Ireland Baldwin will be the first remind you: Think before you tweet, folks.
In a recent interview with Cosmo, the 18-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger revealed she's tightening the reigns on her social-media presence. "I'm starting to definitely think about what I post, especially in terms of my future, and work and everything," she said. "I used to be a bit more careless, but now I definitely sit there and really think about whether this is a good idea or not."
Previously, Baldwin's Twitter was home to many a revealing image and thought. Her relationship with rapper Angel Haze flourished before her followers' eyes on her Twitter and Instagram feeds.
When asked whether her parents are okay with her (recently confirmed) relationship, Baldwin said she's old enough to make her own decisions. And, at 18, why not? She admits she doesn't have a solid plan for what's ahead: modeling, acting, photography, who knows! "I'm still kind of figuring out where I belong and what I want to represent," she confessed. Amen, Ireland. From one Millennial to another, just remember: It's the drive that counts. (Cosmopolitan)
