29: The Shameless Subtweeter

October 12, 2014 at 12:30PM • 1 hour 7 minutes • Wiki Entry

In this week’s meeting, Ben Brooks of The Brooks Review takes a journey through step six by sharing the perils of having a preconceived "persona" online, how he deals with people who don't agree with what he writes, why he dishes out harsh realities when others use him as an example of success, and how he hates seeing creative people that embrace a "participation trophy" mindset.

In addition, we discuss the art and science of subtweeting, the valid merits of blocking people, how content creators only use Twitter for the narcissistic pursuit of a big audience, the over-politicization of social media, how ignorance perpetuates the gaming of social platforms, and that the internet as a whole has become a wasteland of self-promotion.
