Twitter can be a place of often baseless and negative comments. Although it can be a difficult thing to experience, there are other means to deal with it. First, try taking a friendlier approach. Rather than fighting, be nice. Second, be mindful of your own feelings before tweeting. If you are upset, step away from the computer until calmed down, if you must be upset try airing out those frustrations instead of tweeting, or consider the other person and what they might be going through. Third, don’t engage with the negative person. This tends to only cause more issues. Finally, if necessary, mute or block the offending parties.
- An actress recently lamented that Twitter is akin to a cesspool stocked with evil teenagers.
- Since Twitter is a necessary platform for many, it’s wise to get on knowing buttons will be pushed and refrain from tweeting back in the heat of the moment.
- If your buttons are pushed, vent offline and privately before returning to the platform.
“Some people on Twitter really don’t care at all about who they hurt, whether that person is you or someone else.”
