Old Man Andrews See Ian, the best thing about Twitter is just like here if you see something you don't like said by a complete knuckle dragging moron (see above) then you can put them on mute/ignore and never have to see it. I don't know what he's said but it will have no affect on me because I cannot see it.

Got to you enough to trigger you posting about it didn't it.

What did? He posted and it demonstrated the ignore function. On Twitter there are even more tools available to the user to fully customise the content they see, thats the beauty of it and it is lost on you because you have very little understanding of Twitter.

genome I dove headfirst into the Twitter banter, I loved it. As long as you don't take it seriously, it's fine.

You can literally customise Twitter to be exactly what you want it to be, I have never understood anyone getting their knickers in a twist about football related banter. If you don't like it then quite literally have it edited out of your news feed.


But at what point is it “football banter” when footballers are getting racially abused. I.e. Meite getting racially abused back in August

It’s not even like that’s a rare occurrence either. That Derby fan mocking Billy Sharp for the death of his child. Is that “football banter”

I agree partially with what you say but it’s too easy to simply dismiss it as “banter” when it can actually deeply affect footballers. At the end of the day, they are only human themselves

No banter is what Hendo mentioned in the original post, "My club is bigger than your club", "your club is tinpot" etc etc. The things you have decribed are crimes and Tweets of that nature should be and are reported and dealt with by the authorites.

I’m liking* the fact that a thread decrying the juvenile nature of Twitter has basically become a catalogue of infantile name calling.

“Rent free” really has to go. From what I’m seeing the biggest culprits are Aston Villa supporters who seem to think people care about them
