Scientific study after scientific study is showing that too much time on social media can be extremely harmful both mentally and physically.
But even though most of us know this, very few of us actually alter our behavior in a meaningful way. When Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and other major social media platforms first emerged, we welcomed them with open arms. They were a lot of fun and they allowed us to interact with family, friends and society as a whole in ways that we had never been able to do before. But they were also extremely addictive, and they rapidly became transformed into dumping grounds for just about everything toxic, negative and malevolent that you can possibly imagine. Today, many of us spend far more time on social media than we do with real people, and as you will see below, that has enormous implications for our future.
A growing body of scientific research clearly indicates that spending too much time on social media can be very bad for us. For example, just consider what a long-term study that was conducted by Gallup over a period of two years ultimately concluded…

A former Canadian prime minister deleted her tweet and issued an apology after wishing for Hurricane Dorian to make a “direct hit” on Mar-a-Lago, President Donald Trump’s luxury resort in Palm Beach.

To the delight of Twitter users across the country, right-wing artist Jon McNaughton revealed “The Masterpiece” on Tuesday, a portrait that shows President Donald Trump about to metaphorically unveil his vision for America.
It’s where Trump’s right thumb is placed that aroused at least one person’s attention.
Other people were inspired to create their own masterworks.

Somebody must’ve not been paying attention in biology class.
A rant from feminist YouTube star named Jenny McDermott has gone viral on Twitter over the past few days. In it, McDermott tells her audience that, to create the ideal conditions for the survival of the human race, we must kill all men and male babies.
“We need to kill all men. I am sick of being a baby factory that produces more men who will in the future subjugate me. The solution to that is to kill any man that you see in the streets just any swinging dick. We want the species to go on but we only want it to go on with women in it.”
Don’t believe us? Here’s the clip. And (at least as far as we can tell) it’s not a deep fake.
Twitter forced Sen. Mitch McConnell’s campaign Team Mitch to remove video of leftists calling for violence outside the Senate Majority Leader’s home in Louisville, Kentucky on Monday, saying the footage violates the platform’s “violent threats policy.”
“This morning, Twitter locked our account for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell,” McConnell’s campaign manager Kevin Golden said.
“We appealed and Twitter stood by their decision, saying our account will remain locked until we delete the video.”
The social media company also forced two other accounts to remove the video, including congressional staffer Ben Goldey and Daily Wire journalist Ryan Saavedra, despite the video’s obvious newsworthiness.

You’d think Democrats would have learned by now that blaming everything on pesky Russians isn’t something that resonates with that many level-headed Americans.
Well think again.
#ClintonBodyCount began trending on Twitter in response to a story about Jeffrey Epstein being found nearly unconscious in a fetal position inside his NYC jail cell, with the cause of his injuries unknown.
The incident was reported at around the same time a new story emerged confirming that, despite Clinton’s denials, Epstein visited the Clinton White House multiple times in the early 90s.
Fresh attention on Clinton’s connection to Epstein is clearly why #ClintonBodyCount began to trend, but many Democrats went ahead and blamed Russia anyway.
“Russia didn’t wait long to prove Mueller 100% correct about Putin interfering in our politics today with the #ClintonBodyCount trending hashtag,” asserted Grant Stern.

Bette Midler is facing backlash after suggesting that President Donald Trump paid African American supporters to add “blackground” to his rally.
The outspoken Trump critic took to Twitter Wednesday to share a photo of a group of black men standing in the crowd behind Trump during one of his reelection rallies.

Her remark was instantly slammed as “racist” and “really sick.”
“Wow, Bette! That’s some racist crap right there. I guess an old, white woman like yourself gets to decide what and how black people should believe and vote,” @staceybeast tweeted, while @Sammurica wrote: “People of different races are allowed to support whoever they want. Shocking, I know.”
