Twitter Handle Embroiled in Controversey

I own (as much as anyone does) a fairly well-followed but mostly dormant Twitter handle representing a place that has become the focus of a controversy due to the actions of some no-couth-having [redacted] and thus my phone notifications were blowin’ up this weekend.

I really didn’t want to take sides, and the temptation to troll was nearly overwhelming, so I ended up just posting a Tweet of a bit of wisdom that my father used to tell me and it turned out to be one of “my” most retweeted tweets ever.

So, I guess if you want a hot tip for social media success: wade in on super-controversial topics that people get worked up about … which is exactly why I try to stay out of political discussions.

The principle of informed consent in the age of social networking can’t be limited to individuals who are studied; the public has every right to be informed of otherwise undetectable commercial or political practices that are made possible by the results of research into high-tech manipulation, and to choose whether to give consent.

But it’s on Facebook’s platform that you’re choosing to use for free. They gotta keep the lights on y’know.
