I've said it before, but danah boyd says it so much better: sometimes, the photos and tweets are Too Much.

I just don't understand why it's any of my business how much my online acquaintances choose to share. After all, I only have to look at what I want to look at. For instance, I don't look at anyone's Tweets. I'm probably missing a certain amount of fun, but I'm kinda turned off by the concept of Twitter and think life's too short to force myself to try everything (e.g., sushi). Maybe when I'm laid up with a broken leg some day, I'll change my mind about the Tweets (though probably not the sushi-- that will require a desert island and no matches).

I was just in Manhattan for 3 days, during which time I was completely unconnected to the Internet. That, to me, is the only way to vacation. However, I confess that I'm preparing a megapost on my trip, and I hope that (should I complete it to my own satisfaction, always a precondition for posting) LJ friends who don't care for that sort of thing will just skip it, rather than being annoyed with me for doing it.
