No, I Am Not Leaving Twitter Says Hansal Mehta
Filmmaker Hansal Mehta confirms that he is not leaving social media platform Twitter and despite all the negativity spread during this election, he will try and be more positive and celebrate every culture.
Micro-blogging platform Twitter, turned into a battle ground where abuse, negativity and mudslinging has become a norm. Celebrities get targeted for their opinions and political stands.
Hansal Mehta had his fair share of trolls and now the filmmaker has a new resolution, and yes, he is not leaving Twitter.
The filmmaker wrote, “There's been so much negativity, name-calling and hatred on Twitter. These elections have made this platform a place to express prejudice and to become derogatory. It's been on the increase over the past few years and has made this space very toxic. No I am not leaving twitter.
“I resolve to make my posts more positive, to speak about all the good things life has to offer, about all the good in the world, about cinema, about art, about poetry and about people who inspire me. I will celebrate every festival, I will celebrate every culture...I will celebrate those who work towards making this world a better place. We've had enough number of people using this platform to spread division, hatred and abuse. I will use this platform to pray for peace, understanding and love. I will tweet responsibly”
