There's too much toxicity on the internet it feels

I feel like people on social media - mainly Twitter just don't know when to be decent human beings, twitter users (it's not x) will go out of their way to harass and dox people over the most mundane things imagineable, they'll choose the most toxic way of dealing with things and it's baffling


Places like twitter, Reddit, even here, are affected by toxicity and trolls, and I feel like toxicity will always seep in no matter what

This is how I feel as well. Today, I had a serious panic attack after seeing gore on instagram. what really disgusted me is, this wasn't the first time i've experience something awful or traumatizing on instagram or tiktok.
Hate. that's what social media and MEDIA IN GENERAL... is based on. Constant pain and misery. It's easier to feel negative and sad compared to feeling positive ig. It's awful.
I've deleted instagram today.

Mike Tyson once said "Social media made y'all way too comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the face for it."

The internet has given people the ability to be total assholes with near anonymity and practically no accountability. It's much easier to insult someone behind a keyboard and a screen then it is to insult someone in real life since I feel like people tend to think of the person they're talking to online as not a real person and also if you tried to insult someone in real life, you'd probably get your ass handed to you.

gaaahhh, even instagram comments... like its so vile, u'll legit see people talking abt nasty stuff on a kids post or making racist or transphobic comments.. its beyond disrespectful and disgusting.. what has the internet come to..?

Whenever I see shit like that, I just try to dismiss it and not interact with it. Number one rule of the internet is don't feed the trolls. Stuff like that is usually just ragebait meant to piss you off so responding gives them what they want and if they're genuinely racist or transphobic then trying to debate or converse with them is useless since they probably won't change anyways and if they do change, it probably won't be because of some random person on the internet that they got into a debate with online.

Best thing (sarcasm) Abt Twitter doxxing is everyone will boost it if it's a queer/trans person but if you doxx a literal neo Nazi Elongated Muskrat himself will do everything in his power to protect the neo Nazis privacy and strike down whoever doxes them/spreads the info

no like actually its so crazy how people will go to the world's end to protect horrible people but when someone who was literally minding their own business gets doxxed they "deserved" it
that whole sketch situation is a prime example (came out that dude used to be a gay p0rn star before becoming a streamer which isnt bad at all and people lost their shit and started attacking him)

Agreed.. everything just feels so hostile now. It's demotivating, really. Thankfully, there will always be those small safespaces but who knows how long they'll last..

no literally and its EVERYWHERE people will genuinely be saying the most horrendous shit ever and its actually crazy

it DEF has something to do with how everything is "anonymous" for ppl to be so comfortable being so icky and those people typically aren't aware of how their online activity can affect their real life since everything is so easily traceable now

Real. Saw a black Kaito cosplayer and half of the comments were about him being black ️ the n word is also bypassed way too much

People are confident to harass others because they can go anonymously or like have fake accounts, harm others/spread misinfo that might ruin someone, then run away. It's so frustrating.

frr, whatever you post on Reddit will be argued with and downvoted for no reason and Twitter is legitimately a cesspool that has too many bots/ads to function. Most of the terrible shit and gore I've seen on the internet has been on twitter

The only proper social media right now, is Spacehey, and Youtube somewhat, because, we watch all our videos from YT and nothin' else.

Spacehey is the one social media that will bring back what SM once was.

(Imagine your hearing or listening on YT, Cat disc and then Dog disc after Cat as you read my profile)

I'm a firm believer in the Dead Internet Theory. Majority of activity on a site like X or Facebook is purely bots. Not sure about Reddit or other sites, but X and Facebook almost definitely have at least 80% bot activity.

i think it's mainly bc of anonymity. ppl think bc no one sees ur face or knows anything abt u that it's safe to do these things. but the internet is always gonna be like these, even if there was no anonymity on the internet
