I want to be clear that I understand that free speech exists, and I get it, but I’m not a fan of peeps getting made fun of. Let’s begin:
One of my biggest grievance with Twitter and Vine is that memes and videos about how sucky Android cameras are extending as far as mocking Android users for merely saying their videos look just as good pop up from iPhone users and then it blows up incredibly fast. Like, if the Android phone camera really DOES suck, then why would you add insult to injury by mocking them. And if the Android phone camera is decent, why make fun of them for being equal or marginally worse than an iPhone camera. I just don’t get why it blows up so quickly. Every time these frustrations well up in me, I repeat to myself that maybe people have been insulting Apple people for their phones so much, and I just never ever ever see it but happen to see tons of memes and interactions with people making fun of how poor Android users are or how crappy their phones are. Obviously, I’m saddened by it, and my will to believe that one day the paradigm will shift that we can all be respectful continues to fade. I think what gets me the most is that seeing the byte making fun of Androids and Android users exist has been commonplace for me, but seeing how many more rebytes and likes they get compared to some of the other bytes I end up watching is highly discouraging.
I don’t know. Does anyone else using Android feel unwelcome on this app or felt unwelcome on Vine or Twitter?
