Fan wars in #KFI : My take
1. Media mafia banned @dasadarshan for various reasons . Did anyone question how ethical journalism it is?Reasons should be debated - fairly on both sides and move on. #Media is biased and different reasons contributed to this #ban
2. #Dboss was sidelined by #Media but his loyal fans stood by him throughout and made #Kranti a success . Some biggies who are behind #ban are irked by support and promotion of kranti wanted to push their ego to dent @dasadarshan pushed to pull him down in anyway #kfifanwar
3. Taking advantage of broken friendship of @KicchaSudeep and @dasadarshan , some unknown hands pushed for online hatred between two actors fans . It grew eventually with tit for tat from #dboss fans #kfifanwars

Every day at 5 AM I arise from fearful word count dreams to find myself suddenly transformed into a @GailSimone twitter thread run through a WorldCon blender because I forgot Time Zones exist. I look in the mirror and discover Gregor Samsa writing samizdat @catvalente novellas.
“out, out, foul fanfic writers!”, Orlando interrupts. “WorldCon is next year damnit, this is”

And with that Beast Boy fridges me for stealing @seananmcguire lines for my AO3 word count when I’m only a hemidemisemipro if you count patreon O:) #fandom #amwriting #annoyed
(The Bear entering the room is @matociquala of course, but I already left the TED Talk soapbox so I didn’t have to prove I went to readercon once back in the day…)

It’s dope that our projects were birthed for very much the same reason; to add some colour to a wildly monochromatic #Anime Fandom and Anime #Podcasting Scene.

Since time immemorial, White Voices have been fêted as important tastemakers within global popular culture; even…
within Anime, which is very much a facet of East Asian culture and our projects disrupt this notion.

They show that Black Folks should not only be respected and celebrated as Anime Tastemakers; but also that our voices carry weight, the content we make is world class and we…
are collectively (ESPECIALLY Black Americans) pushing the #fandom culture forward; driving Anime fully into the mainstream and the forefront of Western Popular Culture.

What you’ve done with #AnimeAfterDarkCH is truly incredible and I cannot wait for it to blow up even further…

Ich gestehe:
Ich gehöre zur Fraktion
"ich habe Toni Hofreiter auch nie wirklich ernst genommen"
In meinem Kopf hatte er immer als 'Alpen-Wandergeek mit Zuganfahrtsplan im Kopf' gelebt (danke liebe @Zeit!)
Was eine Frisur, ein Dialekt und etwas Ignoranz bewirken können.
Heute... Image
... hat sich das ganz entscheidend geändert also seit dem Interview im Deutschlandfunk @DLF von vor ein paar Tagen.
Und jetzt frage ich mich: Wann wann bekommt Anton Hofreiter endlich einen richtig produktiven Satire-Account an die Seite gestellt?
Sein aktueller #fandom-Account wird dem Potenzial dieser Politik-Persönlichkeit einfach nicht gerecht.
Ach ja oder als Alternative für Deutschland:

How awesome is this? Our man Nelwin, featured in these photos here, has made it his life’s mission to travel to places where Tintin went...and get clicked similarly! Now that’s what I call a die-hard fan! #AdventuresOfTintin #Fandom #TourismWithATwist

I've been reading about @MarzGurl and this new drama and I have thoughts. Typically, when a group member does something bad or in violation of group norms, the Black Sheep Effect says that the group turns on them. Yet when that member is an exemplar or leader this might (1/14)
not happen. The leaders or exemplars of the group or those perceived to be in part set what is acceptable but also shape aspects of the individual's identity. What may be going on in the case of fans rallying against a scapegoat for their own dissonance and...(2)
With the potential of having to admit that a paragon, an exemplar of their group, or someone so closely tied to ones specific group of interest has been alleged to have done some terrible things is tied to the need to reduce that negative emotion.(3)
