This whole Little Mermaid controversy is disappointing and has brought out another round of Rage Feeding Robots.

Important life lessons, friends!

Learn to:

1) Spot the Bots!
2) Don’t feed the trolls!
3) Block & Report!
After the last election, it’s all of our patriotic duty to pay attention to how social media was manipulated to divide & conquer. These accounts are used to sow chaos & division & exploit our weaknesses.

Again:
1) Spot the bots!
2) Don’t feed the trolls!
3) Block and report!
An important reminder to pay attention to our real life relationships.

Make eye contact & say hello to our neighbors.

Talk to people who you think we have nothing in common with. Embrace nuance & complexity.

Be curious. Be creative. Be courageous. Do the work.

Onward. 🌿
Time to angry troll/bot reply to this thread was...remarkably fast!

Blocked and reported.
You can also use @blocktogether to block large groups of known troll accounts. Very helpful if you have experienced or are vulnerable to real life doxxing attacks.
When you see an us vs. them controversy involving lots of trolls & are tempted to go Full On Lizard Brain Rage Monster, remember, the trolls live for that.

My strategies:

1) Don’t feed the trolls.
2) Be positive when possible.
3) Attack ideas, not people.
4) Block a lot.
The challenge in organizing our citizenry to defeat the autocratic regime currently running this country into the ground, staying outraged about it, and not letting the social media war win again by using the outrage machine is...precarious. nybooks.com/daily/2016/11/… @mashagessen
