Internet Thugs dominate Twitter and Social Media

leave a comment »

Lately, I’ve seen the rise of Internet thugs on Twitter and on artists and celebrities comment boards on YouTube, etc. Just today, I was watching the beautiful Serena Williams’ HP innovative commercial on YouTube.

The video was awesome and then I just happened to scroll down on the video and see the proliferation of racist, sexist, thuggery that dominated the comments.

The Incomparable Internet Thug

The Incomparable Internet Thug

I went to Chamillionaire’s website to take a listen to his Mixtape Messiah mixtape and buy it and saw some of the comments and was very turned off by the comments themselves. It seems as though everyone with a computer, high speed Internet connection, and a voice wants to come up thuggish when it comes to comments.

The most interesting thing about these Internet thugs is that they are usually the smallest person in the room with the least amount of confidence in person. At the job, they may be disgruntled with what the boss or manager says, but will never even come close to mentioning how they feel directly to the manager. So, why take on a new personality and new status on Twitter, You Tube, or Facebook if you’re really afraid in real life?

Because you can. Behind your screen name is the real you. The hidden you. The hidden anger, jealousy, rage, emotion, racist, sexist you. It’s the perfect alter ego to a crazy world. In the real world, you have to be fake. You can’t ever tell anyone how you feel for fear you will hurt their feelings. So, because people’s inner feelings and thoughts are so suppressed, they completely come unleashed on the computer. You feel a real sense of power and self-empowerment on the computer that you can call someone anything you want behind the computer screen. There are ZERO repercussions and no one, not even your moms, is going to straighten you out and correct you.

It’s the breeding ground for contempt, anger, hatred, remorse, personal violation, and contention. It is the best place to yell somebody down in the street when in the actual street you’d act like a mouse and scurry away not to be seen. But no one wants to be a mouse so the Internet and Twitter allows you to be a king/queen for a day and even every single day. In fact, you can find certain popular music and celebrity boards and Twitter and curse everyone out freely just because you can. AWESOME! Welcome to the wild world of Internet thuggery and Social Media destruction.

And by the way, thugs come in all forms: black, brown, yellow, white, green, red, pink, blue, male, female, fat, skinny, thick, round, frail, and frumpy.

Taylor Swift owes Kanye West an apology

with 6 comments

Kanye West took things way too far but he is responsible for literally blowing up Taylor Swift. Without Kanye, she would be a relatively obscure and unknown artist. Do you think that Ms. Swift owes Kanye an apology or at least a letter of thanks for boosting her career to the next level?
