What @Twitter is 2 me
Lifeline,Conversation,Worship Of Life as a Mortal
No Time constraints,on and off switch at my control
Block nasty people
Report nasty tweets until my fingers hurt
Give up sometimes
Always @DisabilityJ my Virtual Church is there with a kind word
Golden Rule
Twitter started, for me, as a way to share my Daily blog entries,
Connect with others with #MultipleSclerosis when I was on a drug study and working full time as a nurse. A support group. As the recent polarized political climate has heated up, so has the conversation on Twitter
I have to concentrate some days on my own reactions to negativity and hateful, sometimes abusive tweets. I lost money trying to get pain relief from a Twit who blocked me after taking my bitcoins. It can be a dangerous place.
As dangerous as it can be, this has become my Meeting place for like minded people, Worldwide, who connect by words and images. As it evolves, perhaps the hateful comments will be ignored before too many people quit in disgust. Censorship, however, is tricky.
Don’t we All know the Golden Rule?
Universal among Religions, Cultures?
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you?
Lately the Algorithms used by @Twitter @Google et al have been scrutinized as favoring one political party over another.
I didn’t realize they are Immune.
They are Immune from responsibility for content censorship ethics.
Unlike Newspapers in USA 🇺🇸 which our Right to Free Speech protects. Maybe it’s time that changed. Food for thought.
