The Daily Grind Video

Logging onto Twitter might get you killed.

Just ask Nicole Scherzinger, Paula Abdul, Kelly Osbourne, any Kardashian, or anybody who takes a picture with Justin Bieber.

It’s only Tuesday and already this week, Miley, Kelly, Nicole, and Paula all got E-Mugged on Twitter by threats and hate tweets.

One person tweeted, “F**K you Paula you dumb c**t you voted off the most talented person on your f**king show. i hope you die you DUMB B***H.” 

Another person told Nicole to go die!

So from this point on, I am going to carry a pocketknife on me while I tweet. It seems like almost overnight Twitter has become worse than Brooklyn.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve walked through the mean streets of Brooklyn and never got harassed or threatened as many times as I did on Twitter. Twitter is a never-ending stream of insults, verbal stabs and death threats.

Somewhere in the world a crazed Bieber fan is plotting to kill the next person to sing “Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer” for stealing it from her man.

Sure I get it, Twitter isn’t a place for friends like MySpace, but why do people have to get e-killed on the daily?

I understand that people don’t have to “like” your tweets, but do people’s unborn children have to be gutted and skinned alive?

The more I think about it, the whole concept of Twitter encourages the mass murderer type. You log onto Twitter and follow them. I don’t know about you but if this was real life and thousands of people were following me I would definitely fear for my life.

Why is the internet any different? Look folks, do we have to wish death on people who tweet their opinion, or do their job? Justin Bieber’s love life, Paula Abdul’s judging and a celebrity’s opinion is not a reason to threaten to kill someone!

So until people understand that, I will continue to carry my knife while I tweet. Twitter is the hood.
