There’s a cyber war raging on the web between liberal and conservative. Now, as an expert in social media for over 20 years I feel pretty good about my skill how to spot trolls. So when I see the comments sections have gone totally bonkers I also see these are not regular people. IMHO these are paid trolls for both polarities run amok.
I respect Trump for his effort to hang with the people to skirt the media by Tweeting. But is it right for a president to Tweet so often and about major issues? Yeah, I know the media is a mess he’s trying to work around. Media today is no so much fake and highly niche oriented. This means we all live in bubble lib news and conservative news.
But isn’t possible this instant communication is downright dangerous? China is getting pissed. Sometimes Trump can come off like an internet troll. Look at this definition from Wikipedia.
In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, often for the troll’s amusement.
Now look at this already famous New Year’s Tweet from Trump.
Follow me on Twitter. I promise to never troll you. Watch me, and my love and partner in all things Elizabeth England, as we wade into the chaos field of the Trump inauguration day events to do meditations for balance and harmony to return to America and the world for CoolestMeditationEver.com.
