Every day someone says or does something that brings contempt to the Internet. Here at Digg, as part of our mission to control what the internet is talking about right now, we brought together the main characters on Twitter last week and held them accountable for their actions.
There is one main character on Twitter every day. The goal is never to be
– maple cocaine (@maplecocaine) January 3, 2019
This week’s characters include a man with the impression that crypto has always been loved by everyone, a casual man who doesn’t know much about Formula One racing, and a congressman who is unfamiliar with the wonders of television magic.
The character: Bobby Goodlat, Twitter user, investor, vague man on NFT
The plot: On Monday, start-up investor Bobby Goodlat turned to Twitter to share a confusing opinion: that it has become popular to criticize the art of NFT in recent months and anyone who does so now simply jumps on the search engine. “Where was everyone six months ago?” He asked. “You have the right to a victory tour only if you shouted nonsense when it was at a social cost. When that was the unpopular thing to say. “
It is now quite popular to get bogged down in NFT art
But where was everyone 6 months ago?
You are only entitled to a victory lap if you shouted nonsense when it was at a social cost. When it was unpopular to say something

Confusing. At no time were NFT supporters the majority – at no point did people who mock irreplaceable art boldly oppose the status quo. Most people are at least skeptical about the rise of blockchain-based art.
Consequences: People on Twitter rushed to clarify with Bobby, telling him that many people had actually criticized the art of NFT for a very long time and that none of them had been brave or had done so at a “social cost” (what does that mean, even viciously? ).
I know you said “6 months ago”, but here’s one from 15 months ago, does that still count? https://t.co/HUJjtqt4ef

imagine living in such a miserable fomo bubble, populated only by other strange people with more money than the feeling that at no time do you see that everyone is making fun of you from the beginning https://t.co/xnnbiYTV6M

A man named Paul
The character: Paul, literally no one in Britain who doesn’t like “awakened leftists”
The plot: In an already deleted tweet, a man named Paul wrote about Formula One host Naomi Schiff, saying she was not qualified to comment on the sport because she had no experience in Formula One.
Usually stupid like these are on the radar because of how late they have been since 2000, but the Formula One community does not forgive stupidity. Schiff started competing in Formula One this year and has almost decades of professional driving experience, which I can safely say has decades cost more than the average racing fan who enjoys fast cars from the comfort of a screen perched on his stomach. you are.
Consequences: Schiff herself refused, and with Lewis Hamilton in her corner, it was only a matter of time before the big man Paul deleted the tweet.
But real fans of the races pointed out how stupid the comic about Schiff, who kicked the ass on the racetrack years before his new concert, was.
Naomi is a former professional racer and is fully qualified to express her opinion as part of the Sky team. She has been a great asset since joining and we should welcome a more representative open-air broadcast. There is still a long way to go to change these attitudes in sports. https://t.co/E6U7zX4XqI
– Lewis Hamilton (@LewisHamilton) June 14, 2022
Murray Walker and David Croft, the two most iconic commentators in Formula One, both have less racing experience than Naomi Schiff. If you are going to try to point something out, at least think about it through the person.
– Virtual Security Clive (@VSClive) June 13, 2022
She finished second in the Le Mans class and competed in single-seater cars from the age of 16. What are your qualifications for motor racing that make you think you can doubt hers?
– Brian Embleton @ @ (@BrianEmbleton) June 13, 2022
She is a racer. It competes in the VW formula, the Asian renault formula, the Asia-Pacific Ferrari challenge, the clio cup, supercars, 24-hour races, the w series. She has more experience than you and can talk about it better than you

When did David Croft or Ted Kravitz race in Formula One again?

The character: Rep. Greg Stubb (R-Fla.), A man from Florida, a man who voted to repeal the election results in 2020, is not a fan of the Communist News Network.
The plot: On Thursday, Congressman Stube criticized the January 6 hearings of elected House committees, saying they were a publicity stunt for CNN ratings and arguing that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had allowed CNN to “build a full TV ”in the Capitol building.
“In case you forgot the fake committee hearings # 6 are only for TV ratings, [House Speaker Nancy Pelosi] let the Communist News Network build a full TV set where Abraham Lincoln’s desk once stood, “Stube wrote on Twitter.
In fact, the cable news network used a green screen background at the Statuary Hall, which Nancy Pelosi’s spokesman gently pointed out to Stub.
– Ian Krager (@IanKrager) June 16, 2022
Consequences: Stube later deleted his tweet, but not before CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski took a screenshot of the offspring and received widespread ridicule on Twitter for not knowing the technology on the green screen.
Representative Greg Stubb removed his tweet, calling CNN the Communist News Network, which built a “full TV where Abraham Lincoln’s desk once stood” because he was informed that what we television businesses call a screen. pic.twitter.com/h7HLPEOFCa
– Andrew Kaczynski (@KFILE) June 16, 2022
Something that actually happened: insurgents instigated by Trump’s Big Lie stormed the Capitol on January 6, some carrying the Confederate battle flag. Many of those who tried to cancel the US election marched over the place where Abraham Lincoln’s desk once stood. https://t.co/FdssYY4LXA
