My wife received an interesting response to a comment she made to Trump. The guy pointed out that my wife had only 63 followers in 7 years. Her retore was "Because all 10.3k of your followers are all personal friends who can attest to your worth. Got it." This is not the first time I've seen people use Twitter stats to devalue someone's post. I don't get it. The number of followers, likes, friends, etc., doesn't make a point false. Truth is not subjective to popular opinion. I guess this is an example of "Truthiness?" The more followers you have on social networks, the more right you are...? I don't get it. It's a dumb logic fallacy employed by people of low intellect and lacking reason.
Ello.co, when it first came out, offered an alternative to Facebook. I signed up as soon as I heard about it then I forgot about it. I've reinvested my time in the social network and Oh MY God! The ART! It's turned into a brilliant art network! It's inspiring to see so much artwork from around the world. I'm there, on Ello, for the pictures. It's a welcome balance to the negative news I read.
