Twitter Dramas: Are They Worth It?

Thursday, 24 August 2017



Hello Lovelies!

I wanted to share this post with you as I have noticed Twitter Dramas in the blogging community have become a daily thing. Now I wont bullshit you or act like mother Theresa and pretend as if I haven't ever been involved in any blogging dramas, because I have. 

A couple of days ago a certain blogger was dealing with a rather rude girl via email, she even went to the extent of creating an Instagram account and stealing other bloggers pictures.  Now I won't go too much into detail as it isn't my story to tell however something was posted on Twitter which exploded into this huge Twitter spat. Unfortunately I was involved in it. I believed what a lot of other people were saying, I retweeted and tweeted about it myself. Granted It wasn't as bad as some of the things being said BUT I was just as guilty as the rest of them. To cut a long story short said blogger shut down the allegations with the truth, which essentially made me feel like an asshole. I was involved in something which upset someone else and for what? NOTHING! What was being said wasn't even true so the only thing achieved was hurting that person. I have since apologised and can only hope she knows that it was sincere. 


This situation however got me thinking, how many of us have been involved in social media drama involving other people. How many of us have jumped on the band waggon without knowing all of the facts? I know I have. In some cases the shit being said might well be true but is it really worth getting involved in, in case it isn't? Is it really worth the risk of unnecessarily hurting another person? I certainly don't think it is. Now I know Twitter drama can be exciting and funny but how do you think the person on the other end of it feels. We have no clue as to what they deal with on a day to day, we have no idea what their mental state is. The backlash of publicly humiliating someone can be catastrophic. 

I won't pretend to be a saint, I won't act as though I have never been a bitch because I have. I am a very upfront and honest person but that doesn't mean I'm a bad person, I make mistakes. I hate upsetting other people. I'm not going to say I won't ever be involved in a twitter drama again because I don't have a crystal ball. But I am going to, in future think before I Tweet. I am going to think of the repercussions and affect things like this can have on other people. As bloggers we should be building each other up not pushing each other down, we should be helping each other. Blogging isn't easy we all know that so why should we go out of our way to make it harder for others? I will be thinking before I tweet, thats for sure. If we all tried to think before we act the blogging community would be much more positive.

  1. The amount of twitter drama that goes on at the moment is ridiculous! It's getting so boring and also hurting a lot of people as you've said. There's absolutely no need for it - I agree we should all be building each other up and stop becoming what everyone thinks bloggers are! x
