In this world of 24/7 news, and 24/7 social media, everyone is bound to encounter those who love everything you post (Thanks, Mom!), or hate everything you post (enter troller). And, you can’t post something without at least one negative comment showing up. It’s just easy to assume the worst in everyone else when each person is hiding behind their own computer screen.
The scrutiny increases as someone’s profile increases. Elected officials are a typical high profile target, and you can see how quickly an argument about a candidate or official can escalate through the means of social media. It is necessary for representatives to listen to the voices and concerns of their constituencies, but to degrade the person or the office is completely uncalled for.
This week, a Twitter troller decided to hide behind the protective wall of social media to create a stunningly racist tweet. However, little did this person know that Senator Tim Scott caught this person in the act, and held them accountable before the world, using a one word tweet response.
Take a look from Independent Journal Review:
It’s finally happened. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) has smacked a Twitter troll into last week.
In response to being called a “house n***a,” a disparaging term routinely used by the left to mock black conservatives, Scott fired back with a one-word response.
If you check out the coward’s Twitter account now, you’ll see that this:
Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!
Glad to see that a simple act of accountability stopped this liberal racist in their tracks and forced them to close their account!
Thank you Senator Scott for being awesome!
