Social media is a great platform for various reasons to connect one another together, but it also can do the exact opposite. For those who don’t know, Twitter is basically a huge forum. Any topic you want to try and bring awareness to you can use a hash tag to categorize that topic. Unfortunately, on July 19, 2014, some people fell victim to what was called the “Twitter Purge” where user would upload a nude photo of someone else and in many cases tag the individual in the photo. As come to no surprise the majority of the victims and participants are minors.
I’m disgusted. I can’t put enough importance on how this idiotic event on Twitter will change the victims lives forever. You hear it on the new from time to time of a young individual committing suicide because their nudes that they’ve trusted to someone exposed them now they have to live constant badgering on about the subject. As a young kid there’s really little you can do to combat this issue. It’s always going to be brought to your attention on social media, friends could start to act different around you, major backlash from parents and even in a lot of cases even if you move those issues can follow you.
I really don’t understand how some people can be so butt hurt over an ex to actually expose their nudes. As I said before, most of them are minor in which is considered obtaining and distributing child pornography. I hope the idiots decided it was perfectly okay to do so gets the damn book thrown at em.
