The profound impact of social media is continually discussed. The ability to produce content by indexed writers can be captured and read less than a minute. The news of the Joss Whedon dropping Twitter will drive tweets across many platforms. For those who do  not know Joss Whedon? Here his resume he is the “founder of Mutant Enemy Productions and co-founder of Bellwether Pictures, and is best known as the creator of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997–2003), Angel (1999–2004), Firefly (2002), Dollhouse (2009–10) and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013–present). Whedon co-wrote Toy Story (1995), wrote and directed Serenity (2005), co-wrote and directed Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog (2008), co-wrote and produced The Cabin in the Woods (2012), and wrote and directed The Avengers (2012) and its sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).”

I am a fan of Mutant Enemy Productions such as, Angel, Buffy, Firefly, Dollhouse and Agents of Shield. How can Avengers be overlooked under the Whedon flag.

The news of Whedon quitting Twitter is in itself the buzz from “Avengers director Joss Whedon quits Twitter” reports BBC.

The news buzz, “Comic-book fans had also criticised Marvel’s Avengers superhero film’s plot, on the social network. Immediately prior to deleting his account, Whedon tweeted: “Thank you to all the people who’ve been so kind and funny and inspiring up in here”. Soon after, a search for an account under the @josswhedon handle returned a “page not found” error.

One critic had created a widely shared montage image showing many of the messages sent to Whedon.

Many called him sexist and misogynistic and said he had done a “hatchet job” on Black Widow, also known as Natasha Romanoff. One asked why the words “strong female character” were not in his vocabulary. But many of Whedon’s fans have now turned on the critics, subjecting some to harassment and abuse.

Comedian and actor Patton Oswalt accused them of having “chased Joss Whedon off Twitter“. In the past, Whedon has used his Twitter account to voice his support for activist Anita Sarkeesian, who has done work to highlight the misogyny and sexism in many video games.”

Smart and successful social media users need to understand the impact of words and content. The ability to talk does not means you should. The ability to abstract yourself from the tone and tenure of a dialogue is hard and complex.

So when people feel the pain of social media kicking back it is hard to defend and stop. As fast as you comment and another surge of content is posted. It starts by thinking of your content before you push “SEND”.

When you “SEND” you might have to defend!
