Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- NDSU counselors say several students have come to them concerned about these confessional posts.

Counselors say the sites show the growing problem of bullying and gossip at all age levels. Because these posts are anonymous, many fear they don't think about how a tweet may impact someone emotionally before posting it.

Another problem - once these tweets are out there, they're nearly impossible to erase completely.

Marlys Borkhuis - NDSU Counselor/Assistant Director: “Now, with the internet, it's anybody who can read those. So, it's humiliation that can be very far reaching.”

Counselors say the best thing to do if you're insulted by a tweet is to simply let it go or talk to someone about it.
