If you want to be more optimistic, close your Twitter account. Bad news is addicting. But don’t completely bury your head in the sand.
No one acts in public like they do on social media. People say whatever they want online because they’re shielded behind a mobile screen.
Go to the grocery and the sick-spitting Twitter weirdo behind you is just another dad buying cereal for his kids.
The internet and reality are two-faced. The shift from avatar to face is terribly inconsistent. The silent truth is to acknowledge the web’s nastiness without dancing to its thoughts.
In other words, don’t take the tweets so seriously.
