Best way to battle trolls? Change the conversation. Literally. (via @TheDrum, with special thanks to @VEnergyNZ)
For those who are hoping this is about trolls who live under a magical bridge, we hate to disappoint you. We really do. But this news piece is even better:
Some internet trolls who took after GQ about a questionable magazine cover featuring Harry Styles of One Direction have had their Tweets, um…unicastrated.
According to this article from The Drum, V Energy and its V-Hab anti-troll lab have put some kind of filter on the R-rated tweets directed at the magazine, replacing caustic words with much friendlier terms, such as “love”, “rainbow”, and “highfive”. Check out the article for a colorful array of mad-libs-esque comments.
Now go highfive yourself with a glittering cupcake! <:-)
