Twitter has given us a lot of great things. You can see what your favourite people in the world are doing or connect with them. You can get instant news updates and all kinds of information. I love Twitter & spend too much time on it most days.
There’s also a very dark side to Twitter. It gives people the platform to be abusive, hateful and in this case very misogynous.
Not Just Sports Podcast made this video with two female Sports reporters, Sarah Spain & Julie DiCaro. Regular guys came in and read tweets that were sent to these two women. It starts out lighthearted and escalates quickly.
Watch what happens.
It’s alright to disagree with the opinions of sports reporters. It happens. It’s not okay to attack, insult or even threaten anyone because of it. Don’t Be That Guy.
I hope you’ll pass this video on, because everyone should see it.
DON’T BE THAT GUY.
