A whole lot of people think social media is real life.
So they spend a lot of time on here seeking VALIDATION.
So getting ratio'd really bothers them. Trolls that make up rage mobs understand this.
I went from around 50,000 followers at the time I quit writing for Breitbart dot com in 2014 to the 150,000 I have now because I''m not on social media to seek validation from people I don't know.
Less than 30 people in 7 years I had that degree of interaction with on social media.
I don't use social media looking for people to VALIDATE ME.
This isn't my social life, and I get what Ace is talking about, people who try to use social media as a substitute for a real social life.
It's true! I applied for one. AS A JOKE.
I was shocked when I got it. This was about 2 1/2 years ago.
I had it for about 6 months and then I changed my avi and screen name to "Stealth Jeff".
Twitter took the blue check away.
I don't need it or some Twitter staff to 'validate' me.
When they took it away I had about 75,000 followers. I've added ANOTHER 75,000 followers since then.
Despite all the cool shadowbanning games that go on here.
It's a tribal identifier, and a mark of distinction, but only to other unaccomplished, impoverished nobodies sweating out clickbait..."
Woke culture is running headlong into the wall of reality.
