And Then It’s Not So Social....

What’s to do with this Twitter then? Beats me how you can say anything, good or bad, in just a few characters which, from what I’ve seen, mainly comprise a bunch of # and @ and then just a random collection of letters and numbers. And it’s really, really popular?

Now it seems we have some ladies who want it censored or banned as they’ve been threatened on it.

Being threatened isn’t nice of course, but have these ladies led such sheltered lives that they believe they can ‘say’ stuff, whatever it may be, and assume everyone will agree with their world view? Do they walk down their high streets with their eyes closed? If just twenty people on that high street saw the Tweet and disagreed to varying degrees with those Tweetings, it’s a given that at least two of that twenty will be barking and respond with the most off the wall nastiness they find in the darkest corners of their minds 'coz that's what barking folk do.

To all those who get unpleasant, hurtful responses to their stuff and feel sullied, please don’t involve everyone, just call plod, if you feel the need, then close your account and carry on as if Twitter, or Facebook, or whatever, had never existed. Remember, once upon a time, it didn’t.

On the other hand, isn’t it spooky that this Twitter hate has rolled up right on the heels of Dave’s efforts to stamp out the Interweb?

On the bright side, I saw somewhere today someone saying that the CIA had the ability to remotely turn on any microphone on any smart phone, tablet or computer, any time, anywhere. Hay, are they watching you through your camera? Feel better now?

And on the even brighter side, following on from a conversation with big A the other day, if you read this A, you’ll like this item from The Daily Mash my friend.

Quote; Marc Maron.

“It amazes me that we are all on Twitter and Facebook. By "we" I mean adults. We're adults, right? But emotionally we're a culture of seven-year-olds. Have you ever had that moment when are you updating your status and you realise that every status update is just a variation on a single request: "Would someone please acknowledge me?”
