Gbochie ma kọọ spam na-ezigara na akaụntụ Twitter gị (dekọọ ha @igboamaka). Don't approve content that is patently false, damaging, or bullying. And challenge issues online that are in your best interest – such as someone falsely criticizing your company. Believe it or not, people will defend a company who is righteously defending itself. And, if all else fails, turn off comments. Better to have no conversation than provide some troller with a medium to damage your reputation.
In the event of Lauren Spierer, the damage was way beyond a company's reputation. As a user of social media, I hope that you take it upon yourself to challenge lies, rumors, trolling and bullying online. A great debate is one thing… but spreading hate and discontent is something none of us should tolerate.
Ikpeazụ kwuru: I don't believe in mgbochi gọọmentị of hate speech or the like. I believe those voices, however disgusting, do need to be both heard and watched. But it won't happen on my property and shouldn't happen on yours.
