Kerry Washington has never had a problem with over sharing, when it comes to her personal life, on social media. The Scandal actress has posted VERY little of her family on Twitter of Instagram and she has no plan to. During a panel at South by Southwest (SXSW) she explained,
I have these itchy fingers where I want to post a photo of my daughter so instead I send it to my shrink or my mother. I want her to be able to make those decisions in her time. She already has a lot to navigate in life as the daughter of an actor and a former football player. She should be able to enter this world in the way that is right for her.
She also discusses how she uses social media for work and non-work communication.
Twitter is really a conversation. So I do occasionally engage with things that people say. Sometimes I post something specifically because I know it will engender action and then, almost for fun, I read comments.
Kerry did add how she manages comments,
The truth about comment that I’ve learned is that comments are not about me. When someone comments on social media, they are revealing something about themselves.
