Most media personalities love attention, but not liberal Fox News contributor Sally Kohn. Then again, maybe it’s just scrutiny that she abhors. Either way, she’s unhappy that we’ve run four posts lambasting her in the last two days, and wants to know if that’s a record.
It isn’t, by the way. That happens to President Obama every day, so Sally has company.
Still, if she really wants us to leave her alone, we’re happy to give her a few helpful hints. You see, we’re nice people, but our job is to illuminate people who say idiotic things on Twitter. So, if you want us to leave you alone, the general rule of thumb is not to be idiotic, unfeeling, nonsensical, rude, ghoulish, or generally nasty with your Twitter account. Sensible people just aren’t that much fun for us (unless they’re responding to bone-headedness).
Those are the basics, but we know that might be hard to interpret. So, here are five real-world scenarios to avoid:
5) Don’t complain on Twitter that we spend too much time attacking your tweets. (Seriously, you gave us this one on a silver platter.)
We hope that these tips are helpful. If implemented, they should only take a few days to yield positive results.
