Social media can be used for good, like conversing with like-minded people on topics that interest you. It’s escapism for many and also very entertaining.
However, as you may already know, social media also contains negative comments and posts that are downright awful. Some posts are made just to shock and annoy people, who are commonly referred to as “trolls”. Posting something just to make people angry.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs doesn’t respond to everyone in his Twitter feeds, but he felt the need to respond to a post that was irrelevant.
Diggs tweeted on Monday that he should put on his recruiting hat, in regards to the upcoming free agency period which begins on March 16.
Someone replied that the Bills needed to get defensive end Josh Allen (Jacksonville Jaguars) and cornerback Travon Diggs (Dallas Cowboys), so the Bills could have both Allen and Diggs.
A troll responded by saying that the Bills could never put them under the cap and that “women should stay in their place and not play sports”.
The comment was (rightly) condemned by Twitter users, but Diggs responded by telling him to relax.
There are certain red flags for trolls on social media. New accounts, only messages are replies, and they don’t have a photo or name attached to the account. Obviously, this was meant to stir the pot, but Diggs wasn’t about to let him off the hook with that comment.
