I love Twitter
I dislike Twitter
Yes, both of these statements are true.
I dislike twitter because there are too many bullies and haters who spend their day sending nasty, vile tweets to celebrities and other people they don’t even know.
The University of Wisconsin–Madison has been working on collecting data about bullying. They set up a computer program and found that on a daily basis the computer looked at approximately 250 million public posts that appeared on Twitter. The machine quickly began to identify over 15,000 tweets per day that were related to bullying. That’s a lot of negative each day!!
In the last few days, I have seen too much negative tweets and bullying. I wanted to know more. Through a Google search, I found that many celebrities are beginning to speak out about their tormenters.
- Pink lashed out at anonymous Twitter trolls who send death threats to celebrities. The outspoken singer was targeted by online bullies after she made a joke about Chris Brown miming on US TV. “The internet has created monsters,” the Daily Telegraph has quoted her as saying.
- Sherri Shepherd from The View is taking action against online bullies. She was threatened on twitter by a Lil Kim fan who tweeted, ‘Somebody should drag u in a back alley and rape you’, Sherri marched down to the police station in an effort to get the user thrown in the clink.
- John Legend’s girlfriend contacted twitter after she received threats from fans of Chris Brown and was able to get each and every user that sent her a threat deleted from the social network.
- LeAnn Rimes has filed a lawsuit against 2 tweeters for harassment.
What a sad state it is that people feel the need to try and make people feel bad. What a sad life these people must have.
I was sad yesterday when I read some pretty ugly tweets that were sent to Clay and his fans. So…I decided to concentrate on the positive. The following are some of the beautiful tweets that were sent to Clay today. I did remove the name of the sender, but I didn’t change any other part. It seems Clay has some pretty awesome fans!
