Social media platforms today have given people a place to express themselves. Yes, there is the freedom of expression and so on and so forth and people are more now than ever saying what they think to the world with every opportunity that they get. There is however one thing that we tend to forget and that is the fact that freedom comes with responsibilities. That then means that ion as much as we do have the freedom of expression we also have to watch we are saying or rather posting on these social media platforms.
There are people who have lost jobs due to things that they posted onsocial media, there are people who have lost relationshipand basically people that have lost many more opportunities. It is a fact that the internet never forgets. It is important to be very careful about the content that we are posting and the message that it is sending out to the world. There are people who defend themselves by saying that they were not serious about what they posted and they were basically just joking. Well, it is important to take these things very seriously.
Take twitter for example;you might tweet something absurd taking it as a joke. One of your followers might see it and choose to retweet it. A twitter retweet is an awesome feature with very many benefits abut it can also do you a whole lot of harm. Once one person retweets it you can be sure that the tweet is well on its way to getting seen by more and more people. A simple twitter retweet getscontent that you have tweeted tobe seen by people who are not even following you.
As the twitter retweet cycle continues you can never really be sure how far it will go. You cannot know who will end up seeing the tweet. You might have sent out a tweet talking crazy about your boss and through the long cycle of retweets, the boss ends up seeing it. What will happen to you then? You will definitely lose your job. You will have lost your source of income from something that you were ‘tweeting as a joke’.
It is very true that we do have the freedom ofexpressionand everyone is entitled to their own opi9nion. It is however still very important that we look at the weight that our words carry. You might undermine the twitter retweet and look at it as basically a great feature that helps you get visibility; which it definitely is but it can also end up messing you up. It is however important that we state the facts here and come to the acceptance that it will not really be the twitter retweet messing you up but you will simply be messing yourself.
Simply because we have been provided with these platforms where we literally get to say what and how we feel to the entire world, it does not mean that we have to be vile and disrespectful. It is important to check what we are posting on these platforms.
