There’s nothing that bothers me more than people who think that they can just walk all over you because they have a few social media accounts with so-called larger followings and no real user substance. Are they under some delusion in their thinking that they can just go around and bully others online. News flash people, badgering others on social media because YOU think you can is just not cool.
You’re not fooling anyone but yourself.
Your audience can see right through your mission, and you run the risk of losing them or discrediting yourself in a heartbeat. It’s not only distasteful but extremely unprofessional. If you have an issue with someone or something that people did or said, confront them in private, and take it offline. Publicly trying to humiliate or discredit an individual through social media will only cause bigger issues for yourself and can even get you sued! We all deal with idiots online, and they will most likely not go away anytime soon, but keeping your cool and rising above their stupidity should be paramount when dealing with them.
I guess it makes them feel better.
People that need to make themselves feel good by broadcasting personal matters or unsubstantiated claims online are the lowest of the low. They are nothing more than bottom feeders and don’t deserve one second of your time. If you’re struggling with narcissistic psychopaths that will lie, exaggerate, and offend just to get a response, then you need to be smarter than they are and simply defend yourself if you have to and then silently move on. Remember, though, sometimes even defending yourself is questionable because it only adds fuel to the fire. Sometimes you’re best leaving these little peanut brains to the sound of silence. The sound of nothing can be a very powerful weapon when dealing with online idiots. I’m fed up with having to deal with these two-bit losers and thought my rant could maybe help others too.
