KANSAS CITY TALKER SCOTT PARKS DEACTIVATES HIS TWITTER ACCOUNT AFTER FRUSTRATION WITH HATERS!!!
A bold social media move from one of the top ranking personalities in the Kansas City metro radio takes aim at Internets bullying.
To wit . . .
KMBZ TALKER SCOTT PARKS FLEW THE COOP FROM TWITTER AFTER YEARS OF ONLINE ATTACKS!!!
Here's his statement . . .
Scott Parks: "After months of being told to go kill myself, that I suck at being a human being, that I am an embarrassment to my family and others, that Trump is a god, that I need to run into traffic....I deactivated my Twitter account today. The hate, anger, and mean-spiritness it has become in the last two years was too much to take. Have a great day everyone. Peace."
Like it or not, this kind of decision hurts Twitter in the long run as the social media giant struggles to build a better image and control attacks against users.
Mr. Parks is no shrinking violet and he is accustomed to tough talk, debate and discussion . . . If he's willing to forgo the publicity benefit that Twitter provides in lieu of ridding himself of haters, then other local personalities might be soon follow his lead.
