The Twitter-hood

Some people write badly about you. It stings. But then you wonder… what, why, por que? Is this something I said, something I implied, something I thought of?

In the era of rapid judgment AD 2020 I found myself a subject to Twitter blocks and criticism on more than one occasion. My lesson learned bit is that dudes (so far dudes only) blocked me on Twitter because they don’t agree with my opinion/take/whatever. I always believed that if we were about to drive someone to obscurity by social media banning then it would require us to follow a meticulously explored path of questioning and probing, you know, to understand their point of view, but hell no…. it’s far easier to just block & forget.

Cuz Twitter.

As such I reply to my blockers: come at me with arguments and not blocks. I am not always right, but will listen and will change my mind, if you make me so…
