In social networks and services like facebook and twitter it is very easy for everybody to become an author – readed and recognized from millions of people. To be an author it has never been so easy. And at the same time it has never been so awkward.
A sensitive topic like refugees, Trump or Greta reveals all the variety of the esthetic quality of writing and communicating. In the web suddenly people communicate with others, that would have never been spoken with each other in the analog life. This fact – and the anonymity – creates an extreme discrepancy of demeanor and mode of expression. In the crossfire of these public dialogues there is often a human being.
