I believe that Twitter will never die. It is a big medium, but it is also a broadcasting powerhouse that has one rival — Facebook. As a social economy, these tools has become as automatic as breathing. As important to life; like the air that we breathe.
“Can we create a better web? Sure. But I think we have to start with humility, gratitude, reality — not arrogance, privilege, blindness. Abuse isn’t a nuisance, a triviality, a minor annoyance that “those people” have to put up with for the great privilege of having our world-changing stuff in their grubby hands.”
Your above statement is true, and it is our responsibility to make sure that we do make the web a better place for all. Sadly, most people do not share this view, and they troll about the net-space — making it worst for us all.
Humility is a fallacy, when the “Kardashians and Mayweathers” are flaunting their lavish lifestyles in our faces. The internet has made it more easy to paint that picture that our lives are like “The Bachelor.” That the Jones’s are in fact the broke ones, because we have money pouring out of the water fountain in the living room of the mansion we’ve built with dreams.
Abuse is what the TV stations promote: death, violence, and all the other forms of negativity. This then rolls into the Twit-sphere, and uplift it more. Fights, misconduct, and down right ignorance, is what is holding people’s attention now a days.
This is sad really. -RK-
