Not at all, crazy is good. Look, some people commit suicide because of being attacked on social media. All kinds of insane behaviors are born out of social media. Sexting, blackmail, etc. Why would you want to stop all those good and healthy behaviors? It is nice to see young kids being so F up. It should be swell when they'll be older. Fortunately for me I only have a few decades left among you so go crazy!

Yes, ban Trump from Twitter and we'll be ok.

The most common problem I see is that people and opinions get misunderstood everyday (Twitter in particular).

For example, a celebrity posts a more-or-less neutral opinion, and before you know it, there is a controversy because 10,000 people misunderstood the comments as offensive. And they start arguing with another 10,000 people who think the context of the opinion is different, therefore, not offensive.

A big waste of time. Not conductive to meaningful discussion.

At least Mr. Trump is consistently offensive and stupid ALL the time.

Time to shut down your eyeballs and mind.

I haven't watched any of the Covid19 updates or protests coverage for a week. Watching some Marty and Moog instead. Thank god they haven't addressed any of the shit show on their channel.
