Troll! Most people who aren’t on forums and website would most likely think that it is a hideous thing living under a bridge throwing stone at people! But the world troll doesn’t mean the same thing as it did 10 years ago. With freedom of speech on Social Media there will always be that person who wants to get under everyone skin or make a comment on someones video that will be funny to some people but to the person not taken the same way. What a Troll is to break it down really quickly is someone who post’s mean, hurtful or witty comments that try to spark a reaction from a person or people on the Internet.
Being a troll on the internet is really a funny subject I find. People really have no limits on what can say to Celebrities, Athletes and many other figures since everyone is hiding behind there screen. Trolls has even sparked Jimmy Kimmel to make a segment called “Celebrities read Mean Tweets” where Celebrities read tweets that these people have sent to them, trolling them on there newest movie or how they look. Having that kind of connection is quiet frankly amazing having just a “Post” or “Send” button away from a famous person knowing who you are! With having all that personal connection tho people can push people way to far like Zelda Williams getting Trolled off the twitter and instagram after her father Robin Williams passed away with all the verbal abuse.
When having such a freedom of speech there will always be that bad egg like in real life that you think “Are you mentally stable” with that comment on a video or tweet? I guess when you want to test a mans character, give him power. When having the world to see what you have to say at your finger tips different people will do different things, Some people troll and some people will be normal.
