Brave Unknown

It doesn’t hurt that part of my freelance work involves Twitter and I’ve gotten hooked reading about current events and posts about politics on the micro-blogger platform since I quit Facebook last year. One day my curiosity brought me to unfamiliar territory and even though part of me felt I wasted so much time that day, I did take away a valuable lesson about cyberbullies.

What surprised me clicking through various Twitter profiles was how it became clearer that all of the notorious basher accounts do not have display pictures on their profile that’s uniquely theirs, i.e., their own profile picture. I don’t have a problem with critical thinkers hiding behind a different identity but what gives me pause is their intention to malign. Does this kind of anonymity make them feel entitled to lambaste known personalities? It sure does seem that way to me.

My hat goes off to a number of people I follow that are brave enough to critique presidents and other government officials and still show their authentic faces via their display picture. On the other end of the spectrum are faceless users with copied avatars spreading negativity. It’s one thing to criticize, it’s another to malign. Some cyberbullies I encountered that day feel braver with the latter.

Ghosts

I was doing my usual routine at work around 11am when I noticed a familiar Twitter handle. The retweet was specifically about Australian labor deaths at a workforce and its statistics. I then recalled I had in fact passed by the original tweet way earlier in the morning but couldn’t focus because I was monitoring other topics.

I had to laugh at the coincidence. The original poster of the tweet was none other than the guy who rented a room in Elk’s family’s house. I was introduced to him 2 years ago and in a short while things had soured – he blocked me on Twitter and I eventually had to block him, too. Tit for tat. He thought I was mean, but I figured from his last vitriolic e-mail that he sided with an even greater evil. Showed how brainwashed this guy was, accusing me of something with lesser facts to back him up other than the testimony of the greater evil. How scientific and logical of the oaf to shut out the other side of the story.

And then guess who I unexpectedly ran into at around 3pm this afternoon but none other than an acquiantance with Elk’s namesake. Hahahaha!

The Cosmic never ceases to amuse me.
