Twitter-bashers who hate in Web comments: AYSOS?

August 7, 2009

Had to get this off my chest, though it’s not strictly an entertainment item:

Did you notice when news stories appeared on various websites about Twitter being attacked and going down, how so many knee-jerk “haters” responded in reader comments by carping about how Twitter is terrible and they’re happy about other people’s misery?

That, my friends, is unbelievable hypocrisy. I mean, these people are sending their highly personalized thoughts out into the digital universe in small bits so faceless folks they don’t even know can read them, and they somehow find this ennobling and grand, while those who do basically the same thing via Twitter are all idiots.

Twitter-haters who spend time sending comments to websites: Try looking in the mirror — idiots. Besides, have you ever heard the phrase “different strokes for different folks”? Intolerance doesn’t make you look strong — it makes you look callous, closed-minded and stupid.
