I scold Twitter. Again. Because apparently me and social media are like mortal enemies – or rather online conduct is.
Over at Big Think, I convey why it’s troublesome – both in terms of our conduct online and another area that is related: how we treat celebrities. I dislike the victim-blaming language of “they asked for it” by virtue of being celebrities, in terms of receiving flak and animosity and stalking and whatnot.
I really, really dislike being nasty to innocent, harmless people – even if they are famous.
