Why are they so oversensitive of the little things? I don't know if it's a good thing or not but sometimes it really is overwhelming, like they're over reacting lol

I left twitter because twitter world is becoming mroe toxic and toxic, trying to be so called "woke"

Is it just me?

Well what are the things that you think they’re being oversensitive about?

No you’re the first person to announce your disagreement with the far left.

https://youtu.be/uWM2E9oHlhA I'll admit sometimes I end up trying to be too politically correct. I think that's what's happening on Twitter. The worst part is, we are ALL aware of it but we can't do much about it.
I linked the video because it mentions that instead of trying to be as PC as possible, we should aim to be more polite! Sometimes we will offend people (there is always something that someone will be offended by) so instead of trying to re-educate people so that you gain some brownie points from others, you should just try to be as polite as possible but not criticise others for what they believe or what you think is their ignorance.

So you’re linking a video suggesting that everyone tries to be more polite yet in the very first sentence of the thread you start with insulting the “newer generation” for being too sensitive....
what?

Did it come off that way? Sorry if it did. I wasn't trying to insult my own generation. I was thinking more about Toxic Twitter and how trying to become more politically correct can be quite dangerous sometimes (as mentioned in the video!). Do you understand now or is it still confusing?

It sort of is you, but it's you and a lot of other people. My observation of Twitter is that both sides get very passionate about what they believe in, but the right wing get more upset about people having opinions that differ with their own. That's why there are plenty of words to specifically describe left wing people with strongly held views (e.g. snowflake, woke, antifa, libtard etc etc) but not that many words to describe people on the right with strongly held views.

As a middle of the road kind of bloke, when I've given my opinion on Twitter I've been attacked for it by right wing trolls but left wingers tend to go easier on me and are more willing to engage in dialogue. Especially on Brexit (something championed by the far right and the far left alike) I find if I try and ask honest questions about the subject, the right are the ones who will pile in on me and call me all the words above plus call me anti-British etc.

Oh shut it. Take a time machine back to the 1900s if it bothers you that much.

Now's actually quite a good time to really look at what faux outrage looks like at its most childish. We're going into poppy season and at this time of year the far right normally get online to moan in the most ridiculous way about people who don't wear one as if people actually find the concept offensive. It's weakness in its purest form.

Idk and I don't really care. You complaining about this trivial thing like a baby doesn't make you look strong and tough.

I know what you mean but I think right now this is partly necessary because a lot of rly important topics are being discussed more seriously than before and we need people who will be very defensive of these to counteract the weight people who don't want positive change or are willing argue properly. I do agree to some extent, for instance, I think cancel culture can be super toxic because people who've made a mistake aren't given a chance to reflect on it and learn from it but instead are just cancelled. Overall I don't think it's necessarily bad thing but there are definitely aspects of this way of arguing that could use some improvement.
