It is not my loss

Your twitlonger, though generic, is clearly an outcome of our discussion yesterday. So whether you prefer or not, I am obliged to respond as a person who was actively engaging with you then.

Trolling is present where conversation is present. It is not an exclusive characteristic of Social Media. If you classify what happened yesterday as trolling or targeted trolling or whatever fancy name you choose to define it, it is your loss.

You posted a tweet, that later was termed as not factual but imaginary, which was insensitive. None of your so-called trolls responded to it at the beginning and chose to ignore it. That was because they did not want an argument around it.

But enough conversation that happened around that tweet and you did, at least from your responses, not comprehend the fact that your first tweet was insensitive. So rather than some third parties trying troll you in its real sense, your friends engaged you to make you understand that.

But you never accepted the fact your tweet was insensitive. You deleted the tweet, you countered intentions matter, you offered up a lot of other excuses but the fact that the tweet was insensitive.

No one in social media, at least in our circles, is in it for profit. Everybody is here to learn, to have fun, to help each other out. 

/என்னுடைய ட்விட்டர் இருப்பு வெறும் பெயரளவிற்குத்தான். இதை வைத்துக் கொண்டு நட்புகளை சம்பாதித்து பெரும் இலாபத்தை அடைய முடியும் என்ற நம்பிக்கையெல்லாம் எனக்கு சுத்தமாக கிடையாது./ This is plain silly. Are your friendships for profit? If that is the case review your friends list. There is nothing I can offer you that you can make profit out of. 

There are times when you encounter people who are absolutely not on your wavelength and you would do good to avoid them. If you feel /நம்மீது வந்து கொட்டப்படும் அசுத்தத்தை சுத்தம் செய்துகொள்ளவும் சிறிது நேரம் ஒதுக்க வேண்டியிருப்பது துரதிர்ஷ்டம்தான்./ This is what happened yesterday, I can only pity you. You committed a gaffe and did not realize it or at least did not want to acknowledge it. That was what was being pointed out to you. If you think it was muck thrown at you, it is your problem. 

/அதுவும் ஒருவகை trollingதான் என்றாலும், என் அடிமனதில் அவர்கள் என்னுடைய கருத்தை, இருப்பை விரும்புவார்கள் என்ற எண்ணம் இருப்பதால் மட்டுமே அந்த விழைவு. / When you take this liberty why are you not offering this to your friends? /ஏதோ வன்மத்துடன், மட்டம் தட்டும் நோக்குடன் targeted trolling செய்யும் நண்பர்களுக்கு இனி பதிலேதும் சொல்வதாக இல்லை. / If you think I had vanmam to engage with you, feel free to unfriend. It is not my loss.
