Twitter: Just another mechanism allowing people to put their ignorance/cruelty on display.

Twitter: Just another mechanism allowing people to put their ignorance/cruelty on display.

It amazes me how you can see the real person in a tweet or on a wall in like facebook. I have had those kind of comments made by me online only about other things including "fake migraines". A police officer once told me it is like spray painting on a wall and leaving our name and address. Sad that we don't often see the real person in RL, but we do online. Specialists I have seen for migraine related depression, don't have facebook or tweet. They say most of the anger issues or depression (like 90%)they deal with, have something to do with online places like those.
What amazes me is that most of these people don't have the nerve to say that to us in RL, unless from moving cars, yet they don't hesitate to stand on the internet main street shouting out this hate.
Guess that is why we pray for the sick souls that do that, and thank the one true God for places like this where we can be online without bulling or hate.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (NKJV)

I get disgusted by things like this almost every day on the internet. I'll leave this passage about helping those in need:

"And he will answer, 'I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.' And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life." - Matthew 25:45-46
