7 Seas apart, both born in privilege and both lacking the popular vote, have a fair bit of things in common but it doesn’t just stop there.
You might remember how, not too long ago, our all-time favorite, President Donald Trump’s Twitter account was actually removed from the site:
Twitter later admitted that it had only been the work of a disgruntled employee. Studying some of Trump’s tweets, some would say this had been a long time coming!
Take a look at some of his masterpieces:
Clearly, tact is not a word that exists in President Trump’s dictionary.
This brings us to a worrying situation much closer to home. Is the dreaded fate of Twitter ostracization one that awaits Maryam Nawaz Sharif, one of our esteemed Pakistani politicians, as well?
Because honestly, the rate at which she’s going, it looks like she’s been taking lessons from Trump himself! Perhaps this is a conspiracy; let’s see who can piss off Twitter admins the most to the extent that they, in a fit of unbridled rage, block the account spewing the best and most obnoxious tweets! (And then blame it on “rogue” employees once the hysteria wears off.)
Let’s take a look!
A shout-out to all politicians out there:
We get that politics can be a dirty game but can y’all maybe just try being a little more professional? Instead of outright bashing each other on social media and getting all personal, maybe try to exercise dignity and counter with solid factual arguments? And if you don’t have any, maybe just don’t say anything.
(Also, please… no love poems. Keep “first love”s out of it.)
