No surprise really. Studies show that social media encourages "outrage" and the more "Likes" and attention people get for it, the more people join in and repeat the behaviour. 

Just kinda shows you how easy it was to get online trolls and mobs to keep grouping together to judge others and enjoy their "moral outrage" (and shows how easy stuff like #MeToo was to hijack with idiots)

Ugh. Social media can be like poison

It only takes one bad strawberry to rot the rest. Same with online

And that's why you have tox*c detectors, to rid out the poisonous folk before the ruin the whole lot.

Like imagine if Twitter had a no-tox*c rule --- the site wouldn't be so triggering and scary.

YES I probably would have been in trouble with anti-tox*c rules at one point but that's the point, you learn and grow --- to later return and be much better.

Ironically I learned something strange about strawberries today. Apparently if you wash them all at once it triggers some enzyme in them that causes them to rot faster. Idk if you’ve ever had that thing happen where you buy a carton and whoosh it seems to have gone off too fast. Like waaay before you could reasonably hope to eat them all. Apparently if you just take them out in small bits and wash them right before eating they last longer. I tried it and it works! Whaaaaa. Crazy.
