Cancel Culture Is Toxic

“Twitter, do your thing,” is a toxic line used to expose someone, a brand or company that is displaying problematic behavior.
It is the epitome of cancel culture, the idea that someone can be cancelled based on their unsettling remarks or ideologies. Although the term “cancel culture” is new, the act behind it is not. The trend is particularly popular amongst Gen Z’ers and Millennials.

Twitter hack exposes broader threat to democracy and society

In case 2020 wasn’t dystopian enough, hackers on July 15 hijacked the Twitter accounts of former President Barack Obama, presidential hopeful Joe Biden, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Kim Kardashian and Apple, among others. Each hijacked account posted a similar fake message. The high-profile individual or company wanted to philanthropically give back to the community during COVID-19 and would double any donations made to a bitcoin wallet, identical messages said. The donations followed.
The hack on the surface may appear to be a run-of-the-mill financial scam. But the breach has chilling implications for democracy.
