There’s a trend in social media right now which probably isn’t new but has a reached a level of insanity. Everyone seems to be in competition to be the first to point out the flaws in tweets of the latest celebrity or brand.
I get it. There are brands, celebrities and celebrity wannabes who are probably legitimately trying to capitalize off the latest tragedy for exposure. I just have two questions.
- Whatever happened to giving someone the benefit of the doubt?
- Who are we to judge?
First of all, you’re not in their head. So don’t claim to be.
Second of all, if every dumb thing I’ve ever said in person was captured online, you’d probably hate me, too.
Guess what? I’m human.
So are you.
So are they.
Please, for the love of all that is good and chocolate covered, find something more productive to do with your time. Not sure where to start? Try teaching others how to use social media in a positive light instead.
