Think before you Type

I’m not sure if anyone else feels this way, but recently I feel that I have been surrounded by angry people. Maybe it’s just the hustle and bustle of the holidays that are stressing everyone out, but lately I have been surrounded by angry people.

Angry people can be found on the road, at work in the stores-you name it. But, the one place I have noticed more and more angry people making an appearance would be online, especially Twitter. Celebrities and average everyday people seem to be lashing out at each other for no apparent reason

Matt Lauer from the Today Show, recently recieved an outpouring of nasty comments on Twitter. Check out that story here: http://www.inquisitr.com/413264/matt-lauers-popularity-decline-blamed-on-twitter/

We all get angry. I get that. But, I do not understand the need to be abusive with our comments. Chris Brown is another example. He is constantly in pop news because of degrading things he is saying to people.

Our generation seems to be the biggest culprits when it comes to being abusive online. That said, the next time you post something on a social media site, think before you type.
