birbsite bullshit, cancel culture
And it's just.. Yeah, if you're being bullied you need to stand up for yourself. But if you're getting pushback or become Main Character of Twitter for a day or two, especially if you have a following already, the best way really _is_ to "just ignore it".
That can mean giving your account to a friend to deal with torrents of abuse for you, or Logging Off for a while, but the point is that you shouldn't land in "it should be illegal to @ me".
