It's easy for people to be abusive when hiding behind the anonymity that the Internet offers.
So what did keefriffhards say or do that just got him banned?
OK, I know we won't get an answer. But I'm sorry to lose him.
When we are increasingly posting with our phones, hence using fewer characters, this might apply more now for this site as well?
I don't see that the writer has any evidence that Twitter is dying, actually, except in his own personal experience of it.
Thanks, BV. I agree with the caveat that sometimes people are too sensitive. I guess there is a fine line between humor & what is perceived as an attack. I'm a bit of a trogdolyte as I don't really participate in social media much. The most I do is here. No Facebook, Twitter, etc. I enjoy this site because of the international aspect. I find that as we supposedly have a more open society because of all this we are actually becoming more self centered & isolated. People are so self absorbed now while supposedly becoming less so. Its all me, me, me. I find it disconcerting to be out with someone & they spend half the time glued to the I-phone or taking pictures of themselves. Also, I find that actual conversation is becoming something of a lost art. I've pretty much given up on texting because of it. So many misunderstandings are generated because the actual exchange of ideas is reduced to tiny bites of information allowing for false perception with no recourse. Thanks for this site & allowing many topics to be discussed rather than having a narrow, exclusionary forum. I look forward to exchanging more with you in the future.
Never comment on YouTube upon any documentary that has to do with @#$%& or Nazi Germany. You had no idea how many roaches were behind that plasterboard.
