After spending five years with a company, I don’t believe I’ve ever been as frustrated by the internet as I was in the summer of 2016, when the tiktok hacktivist, who goes by the pseudonym “solo”, began tweeting about how the internet was an incredible source of business and personal information.
The tweet was a long-winded and incoherent rant attacking Silicon Valley firms and their CEOs for not being able to help people who needed help. He also posted tweets like “I have been a billionaire for 7 years now. No one has helped me and I just want to make another tweet” and “I am the world’s largest self-employed person.
Solo began his tweetstorm by suggesting that he was the man behind the tweets and that the goal of the hackers was to take down the entire company. His tweets were then re-tweeted by a number of people who had been the targets of his tweets. These people then began to complain about other tweets that were being re-tweeted (even though his tweets were still being re-tweeted).
The hackers were also getting in trouble because many of those people who had complained about his tweets were now being told by the hacker that the hacker was making them look ridiculous and that they were being unfair. To make matters worse, the hacker was even writing a book about his exploits in which he made reference to him being a man without boundaries who would do anything to get his point across.
I think it’s important to remember that the hacker was using TikTok and wasn’t doing this to just be a dick. He was using this to be a dick.
In the context of a company that makes clothing, this is likely the most viral tweet that has been made to date. The tweet was posted by tiktok employee and author, Chris B. when he was trying to be more creative in his tweets, but it also highlights some of the issues with the way that Twitter works.
On TikTok, users can upload a picture, in the context of the post, using the hashtags #dollarsgeneral and #dollarsgeneraltok. Users can then write a caption, like the one below, and include a link to a website or a video. The link must be from a website that accepts the content, and the user must link to a video that was uploaded by themselves.
The problem is that most of these links are probably going to be bad. Most of these people are probably not going to be paying attention to their own tweets, let alone the tweets of their friends. And the fact that it’s not just the people you follow that you can target with social media, it’s also the people you don’t even know.
The people you actually KNOW are always going to be the ones that get it. While it’s good to be aware of who your friends are, the more you look at your friends, the more you realize you don’t know any of them. A great example of this is the viral clip that shows a Dollar General employee who just wanted to get his coworkers to talk about his feelings. All the coworkers did was tell their friends, and the video went viral.
Sure, one dollar general employee going viral on Twitter is one thing, but how many people see your dollar general employee on Twitter? It’s probably one or two. And if you are a dollar general employee, what are you going to do about it? Say, “sorry we didn’t get back to you, we were busy.
