The New Face of Twitter Trolling
Twitter has modified its default avatar symbol from an egg to a grey silhouette. The corporate hopes this may occasionally discourage anonymity by way of prompting customers so as to add their very own footage (it additionally famous that the egg has develop into related to trolling and harassment). On Monday’s “Day by day Display,” Trevor Noah was once now not inspired with the speculation.
“In the event that they wish to discourage anonymity, that’s cool. However then what they wish to do is make the default avatar anyone no one needs — like an image of Ted Cruz. If that was once everybody’s image, you’d be like, ‘No, no, no! I’ll add an image!’ Even Ted Cruz doesn’t wish to be Ted Cruz. He most definitely would see that and be like, ‘I wish to alternate again to the egg, again when I used to be gorgeous!’” — TREVOR NOAH
But even so, he stated, it’s nicer to be careworn by way of an egg than a shadow.
“As any individual who will get numerous Twitter hate, I’d like it to come back from a adorable little egg. As a result of I imply the phrases are going to be the similar but if an egg tweets me it’s like [cute, high voice], ‘Return to Africa, Trevor!’ However a silhouette is like [deep, haunting voice], ‘Return to Africa, Trevor!’ Like, an egg follows you. A silhouette follows you, after which stabs you within the bathe.” — TREVOR NOAH
