Nothing to do with goods and produce – including pillars of civilization like iPhones, condoms and red wine – being imported from one country to another, imports is tweetable shorthand for important. Imports decisions you encounter on a daily basis include choosing what kind of Instagram filters to use on photos of your lunch (e.g. will this pizza look more tantalizing in Lo-Fi or Nashville?), and whether or not to mark yourself down as “attending” on the Facebook party event of that weird drunk guy you met once and feel a bit sorry for, even though you know your presence is about as likely as Gwyneth Paltrow being humble while eating McDonald’s.
