why do they have twitter accounts

Introducing Draco to Social Media Would Include:
  • “Face… book?”
  • “Tumblr? Isn’t there supposed to be an ‘e’ in there somewhere? I don’t trust it.”
  • “Who is Instagram and why does she sound so tacky?”
  • His favorite filter on Snapchat is the dog filter because he’s just that white.
  • His story is 200 snaps long and all about Potter.
  • “Tweeter?”
  • Whenever he gets a notification from Twitter and the phone makes that bird sound, he screams like a little girl.
  • “Whats the point of making a video if it’s only six seconds long? I can’t even finish my sentence in six seconds.”
  • “Besides, why have eight different social media accounts that do the same thing? You can post short videos of yourself on Vine, Insta-whatever and Snapchat… Why are Muggles so redundant?”
  • BUT YOUTUBE THO
  • He loves Dan and Phil, obvi
  • You find him two weeks later in the bedroom singing ‘I’m a Barbie Girl’ in front of a camera without a shirt on.
  • “Uh… Draco… What are you doing?”
  • “I WAS MAKING A VIDEO FOR THE YOUTUBE! LOOK AWAY!”

facebook and reposting

I know nobody’s here for long spiels, but this might be a bit lengthy… I’d much rather fill my dash with replies to you guys about stuff that has actual substance, or just post art in general, but this needs to be said.

Please don’t message me to ask if you can re-post/re-upload/re-distribute my work. I have an instagram, twitter AND tumblr where I distribute my work. That’s where I’d like to keep it. 

I appreciate the respect you’re giving by asking, but it gets exhausting to keep saying ‘thank you, BUT’…it says clearly on my description page to Not Repost Anywhere. It does not say ‘Please only repost with permission’ it just says Don’t Do It. If you send me IM’s about re-uploading my work on instagram/FB/twitter/wattpad etc, I will ignore it. My silence isn’t an unspoken ‘do whatever you want’, it is a blatant ‘no’. OTL

In terms of Facebook - I respect and admire the effort put in by those who run translation fanpages - but I will also have to automatically decline all of your requests. Not because I don’t want my work to be accessible to those who don’t speak English, but because I’ve had multiple facebook accounts re-upload my work without my consent and with barely any credit/proper captioning of the work. And whenever I’ve tried to fix the issue, I’ve either been blocked, or had the re-posters try and lecture me about how I’m asking for the impossible.

Artists don’t ask for much. We do this for free and because we enjoy sharing our love for a series with the world in the best way we know how - by drawing out our feelings and ideas. It’s honestly a bonus and privilege to be able to earn money from my fanwork/fanmerch, and I greatly appreciate every gesture of patronage. 

Artists shouldn’t have to ‘suck it up’ or be ‘aware that this comes with the territory’. Some artists, especially those who share work on Pixiv, face very real VERY serious legal repercussions if their fanwork is tracked back to them from sites that they did not consent to it being uploaded to. It doesn’t take much to paste a Pixiv artists description into google translate to see if they have said ‘Do Not Repost’ in their native tongue. 

Please respect artists. Please look at our descriptions, read our FAQs and consider ‘why am I re-posting in the first place? Do I have explicit permission? Did I check if they allow this? why not just support and spread my appreciation for their work by reblogging their art post, or telling friends about their blog/twitter/pixiv?’

Artists are not machines made of endless amounts of money, time, or energy. We’re human beings that thrive on feedback, communication, and mutual respect. I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am now if not for the wonderful, kind people who supported and encouraged me on my art accounts. To those who support artists by re-blogging our work and/or keyboard smash their thoughts at us, I love you dearly. To those who support artists by purchasing our prints/keychains/charms/standees/zines? You guys are phenomenal, we couldn’t do half of what we do without you. 

To the re-posters however? And to those who try to lecture artists about the Ways Of the Internet and how Reposting is Inevitable? The solution starts with YOU, not us. Mutual respect and honest communication, please utilise it.

I have no idea how it came to me so suddenly, and why it took me so long, but remember all that talk about how the show was merging with the real world? How the show was literally breaking the fourth wall? The newspaper announcement about baby Watson, Moriarty hacking Amazon, Sherlock on the BBC Twitter - and then us thinking that Moriarty would hack Trump’s inauguration and Piccadilly Circus?

Well, what about the Sherlock and John Twitter accounts? There’s literally so much there. Those two accounts are way too active for a few (maybe one) bored people passing the time and doing it for shits and giggles. Not to mention the meta people have already done suspecting that the accounts are being run by the BBC or someone affiliated with it. I mean, I know I’m delusional and probably grasping at straws here but literally though, why is it that next to nobody is talking about this? Humour me, please. @the-7-percent-solution @worriesconstantly @teaandqueerbaiting @jenna221b @tjlcisthenewsexy how to tag?????

BTS Reaction To Finding Your BTS Meme Account

This request has been in my inbox for so long…I hope you guys enjoy

*gifs are not mine* requested by anon


Seokjin: One day you were over at the dorms and you were hanging out with Jin because he finally had a free day. You left your phone unlocked, when you hurried to the bathroom. As you finished your business, you heard Jin shriek. Your heart jumped and you ran to where he was, to see him holding your phone. “Why do you have this? Is this yours? You make fun of me?!” You roll your eyes and tell him to calm down. He’d be a little upset to know you posted pictures of him not looking his best.

Yoongi: yoongi was trolling Twitter one night, when he came across a particular account that caught his attention. He noticed that some of the memes created were actual situations he had gone through with you. He’d immediately call you. “Y\N? Is this your account (Y\T\N)? It seems like they know so much about things that were supposed to be private.” You’d say nothing. he’d go on about how disappointed he was in you because you couldn’t even make then funny enough. You guys argue throughout the whole phone call trying to determine if you were actually funny.

Hoseok: He noticed that sometimes when you got together, you’d be secretly doing things on your phone. He didn’t want to accuse you of cheating, so he waited until you left your phone unattended, which was rare. The opportunity finally presented itself and he snatched the phone going through your Instagram only to find a meme account. When you came out to find him holding your phone, you’d rush to get it, but he was too quick. “So you like to post memes about me? That’s not very nice (y\n).” He wouldn’t be upset because most of them were funny and entertaining.

Originally posted by jhope-ah

Namjoon: Whenever you were with Namjoon, there were never any dull moments. He constantly had you laughing because of what he’s say and do, which led you to create a meme account. He noticed that every time something embarrassing or funny happened, you scramble something down in your phone. He’d ask what you were doing and you said, “ Writing this down for my BTS meme account.” He’d feel betrayed because his own girlfriend wants to make fun of him behind his back.”How could you?! Are you not woman enough to do it to my face?” Dramatic af. He’d get over it, eventually.

Originally posted by leojuseyo

Jimin: To be fair, you told Jimin you had a BTS meme account but he didn’t believe you, so you didn’t bring it up again until the traitor, Jin, let Jimin know again. Some of the memes included Jimin’s small hands and he blushed in embarrassment. “Yah! You think my hands are small too?!” You’d cover his face in kisses, letting him know you don’t care that his hands are small because that’s what makes him even more adorable. He’d still be a little salty, but if it doesn’t change your opinion about it, he’s okay with you having the account.

Taehyung: Tae saw your account but he didn’t know that it belonged to you. Everyday he’d check to see what new memes you posted so he could show the boys. He had liked one in particular, so he had screenshot the meme and showed you. “Babe look at this. Isn’t this person funny,” he says laughing. You see the picture and crack up laughing. “Glad to know you think I’m funny.” Confusion spread across his face. “Wait. This is your account? Why didn’t you tell me you had this?!” You shrug and he pulls you into a hug. “You love me so much you have to post about me everyday.”

Originally posted by suga-com

Jungkook: He knew you had a meme account and he would purposely make derp faces, shooked faces, just so you could have something new for your account. When he noticed how happy you got when people liked your posts, he’d confess and tell you he did those faces for you. “What! You knew I had a meme account this whole time?!” You would hug him and thank him, causing him to get hella cocky. When asked in interviews why he makes those silly faces, he says it’s for his favorite meme account.

Former park ranger and current National Park Services employee Derek Hale is one of the people running the rogue park services account. He didn’t even have a Twitter until after the election, but now he’s starting to see the value in social media as a mode to get a message across. 

Stiles Stilinski is a masters student at Georgetown. He’s studying environmental science and has an internship with the EPA that he’s hoping he can turn into a job when he graduates in May. 

They meet at a rally in D.C. where Stiles has a sign ‘Why the frack do I still have to protest this shit.”  Derek only notices the sign because he notices the guy holding it looks like he stepped out of one of Derek’s fantasies. 

And he can’t help himself, he asks for a picture of the sign so that he can talk to the incredibly hot guy and Stiles being the little shit he is, tells Derek that he can take a picture if he gives Stiles his number. Derek blushes and Stiles just smiles.

They end up getting a cup of coffee after the rally and it’s then that Stiles finds out Derek works for the park services and he’s running their fucking rogue Twitter account. And Derek finds out that Stiles is studying climate change. They also discover that they’re both from the same county in Northern California. 

After that day they become kind of inseparable and they go to every single rally that they can, they talk about climate change and about the future of the country. Derek even uses some of Stiles’ masters thesis as a source for his tweets. 

Instead of a wedding they donate money to Greenpeace and keep on resisting.

anonymous asked:

If she doesn't want fame, why does she have a stage name? Why did she change her name on twitter in 2013 so her social media accounts would come up when people googled her after her first big outing to the Tonys? Why did she admit she made social media to get attention for her band as soon as she was connected to D? Goddamn people, open your eyes. The girl is thirsty beyond control. People who aren't interested in fame dont do interviews and discuss their "fans and haters" at least once a year.

Ding ding ding!!!

DAY6 Imagine: Once is a coincidence. Twice is not.

  You let your heart melt as he smiled sheepishly after singing. He blew his hair away from his eyes and smiled widely for a bit before he let his tongue out. You rolled your eyes as you feel your heartbeat doubled–or even tripled–as the crowd let out deafening screams. ‘Such a tease’ you mumbled to yourself as you let your heart sink in jealousy, if it hadn’t completely melted earlier. You sighed and walked away from everyone, reminiscing how your heart was captured when you first saw him play & sing with his band when you were a freshman.

    It’s been a year now. You unconsciously pouted when you thought about it’s a new school year. New students; another bunch of girls will start dreaming and trying to get ‘his’ attention. It’s not like you’re trying to get it, too. Ever since, you’ve been just contented with every glance you steal from him; sometimes–you’d even stare. You always look away, though. Afraid that he’ll catch you staring. Why would you even dream in the first place when you know he’s out of your league? Right, because it’s just a dream. Dreams are just dreams. But truth to be told, he’s out of anyone’s league. He’s always been the top of his class, he’s popular, talented and he’s even in a band. But you? Oh, a simple sophomore who doesn’t even fix her hair or even wear makeups. You always let your hair down, sometimes tie it in a messy bun.

    In a café, where you’re always at, you’re seated beside your friend who’s busy stalking Jae, Brian’s (your crush) best friend and bandmate. You glanced at her and put your attention back to your notes when you heard her contain her squeals and the next second, she grasped your arm and started shaking it. She pursed her lips when you threw a death glare at her, she’s pointing at something–someone. You let out a sharp breath and rolled your eyes away from her to what she’s trying to point. You felt your heartbeat raised and stopped at the same time, if that’s even possible. Brian and his friends are now seated on a table beside the glass window. You looked away and stared blankly at your notes. Your friend hissed at you for doing so. “Could you please stop looking away every time?” she asked before staring back at Jae. “Hey” she nudged you “go stare at Brian and count to three”. You didn’t wanted to but she’s so persistent so you gave up. You tried to calm yourself–somehow–and did what your friend told you. One. Two. Three. Your eyes widened when it met his. You felt like the world stopped together with your heart and you didn’t realize you were holding your breath until you ran out of it. You winced at your friend’s squeals. She told you to do it again and you don’t really wanna dare to do so. But she always wins. So again, you fixed your eyes at him and started counting. One. Two. Three. You just want to disappear at that very moment when again, your eyes met. He even has this playful smile plastered on his face. At your surprise, your friend shrieked and you just want to curse using 50 languages.  You shoved a doughnut in her mouth. She grabbed the glass of water to stop herself from choking. She tried to compose herself, so do you. 'I am never gonna do this 'count to three’ game again’, you thought to yourself as you stared blankly at your friend who closed the space between you. “Once is a coincidence, twice is not”, she teasingly said as she wiggled her eyebrows. You let out a breath & rolled your eyes. 'It’s not like it’s really not’ you tried to contradict her in your mind but you know deep inside, you’re hoping that it’s really not. But we’re talking about Kang Younghyun here. He winks and throw hearts to random girls. He’s popular, duhh! Of course, that meeting of the eyes meant nothing.

   Months passed and you forgot about it. Tried to. But your friend always reminds you of it and tries to open that little ray of hope you’ve been trying to shut. It’s never meant to be opened. “Oh! He’s a pandora! His love is a box of pandora!” Your friend sang along with Brian’s band, changing she to he and her to his. Of course, she’s implying something. You ignored her and fixed your ears to Brian’s voice and the rest of the members’. You closed your eyes and appreciate their music, their voices, their talent. You flipped your eyes open from sensing someone’s eyes are on you but as you scanned the crowd, all eyes are on the band. You sighed and shook your head. You, once again, directed your gaze back to him. He’s playing freely, dancing to the beat, swaying his hips, you smiled. 'He really loves what he’s doing’ you thought. He scrunched his nose and let out his tongue for a second. Moments after, he winked. You felt a pang in your chest. 'Yeah, that’s Kang Younghyun. That’s Brian’. You let out a surrendering sigh. 'He’s the type of guy who unconsciously lead girls on.' You ran a hand through your hair as you thought about how kind and sweet he is to everyone. Always wave at people, smile at them as he scrunches his nose. You bit your lower lip as you dragged your friend. “Let’s grab something to eat and check the other booths” you excused. It’s the school festival anyway.

    Couple of hours after, you walked back to the bench where you left your friend a little while ago, with cotton candies in both hands. You slowed down half way as you got a glimpse of a familiar figure with his bass guitar strapped around his right shoulder. He was smiling as he was talking to his friend. Your throat dried and your feet seemed to forgot how to take a step when he turned his head and his gaze instantly locked on you as if he knew you were there, and he wanted to take a glimpse of you. His smile turned into a grin. You blinked once. Twice. You looked away and at last, your feet remembered how to walk. “Once is a coincidence. Twice is not”, your friend’s voice echoed in your head. You carefully turned to look at him again and his eyes are still fixed on you. His head was tilted as he simper.  Amusement was evident on his eyes. You brushed it off and continued to walk toward your friend. 'That was nothing. That’s normal to him’. But does that “normal” means seeing his name in your messages on twitter? You dropped your phone as your knees dropped on the floor. You’re home now. The message was sent 4 hours ago. Your eyes widened in realization, that was the time when he was looking at you, wasn’t it?

“Gotcha ;)”

If your heart didn’t flip, then maybe it was dropped on the floor, too. But what’s surprising is how did he know your account? Does he even know your name? You didn’t follow him on twitter, and vice versa. So how in the world? You tried to shrug it off as your received another message.

“Why u turned away tho?”

If you hadn’t dropped your heart earlier, now you’re sure you just did. Your throat is dry. Your knees are week. Are you still even breathing?

“Oh.. Are u shy bcos I caught u looking?”

Your jaw dropped and you’re wondering how many hearts do you even have because you dropped your heart again. With fingers shaking you mustered up the courage to click the see-no-evil-monkey emoji. You didn’t know what to say, and still don’t. Part of you hopes he won’t reply, another part hopes he’ll do. And you felt a race in your chest, which started for quite awhile now, as another message from him was sent. You bit your lower lip as you thought how fast he replies.

“First time seeing me staring at u?”

You took a gulp as you tried to process 'staring’. He called it 'staring’ and not just merely 'looking’.

“Uhm…I guess?”

Why was he asking, though? No, why is he even dm-ing you?

“Actually, no. :)”

It caused you to arch your eyebrows in confusion

“Uhh?”

It was all you could say. Not to blame yourself, though. You just really don’t know what to say or how to even react.

“That’s just the first time u caught me staring at u”.

You swear you just felt your heart did a back-flip with what he said. You remembered what happened in the cafe as your friend’s voice echoed in your mind again. “Once is a coincidence. Twice is not” That means…? It was not? 

“Come to think of it… It’s the second time u caught me”.

You raised a brow and asked what he was talking about

“At the café where you’re always at”.

Your hands are still shaking as he answered the question in your head. But wait… 'You’re always at’. You took a gulp and asked if he knew that you’re a regular there.

“I’m a regular too”.

You arched your eyebrows again

“But I don’t usually see you. Just sometimes with your friends”

“Because u always face ur notes”

Your mouth made an 'o’ shape as you felt your cheeks heat up. These are too much to handle. The 'stare’ was already too much. And this dm is another thing. Now he’s talking about all of these?

“Am I…creeping u out?”

“Im sorry”

“U still there?”

He asked because you didn’t respond.

“No. It’s just… Too much to handle?? I guess?”

“May I call you?”

   To say you were shocked is an understatement. You clenched your phone on your chest. You shrieked and started kicking in the air as you started rolling over back and forth on your bed, too.

   You’ve never typed your own phone number so fast not until he asked for it. You mentally slapped yourself. ‘You seemed so interested! Get a grip!’ 

   You tried to breathe calmly but your heartbeat is so wild. You once again rolled over your bed, shrieking, and fell off when your phone rang. An unregistered number showed up on your screen but you’re sure who was on the other line. You cleared your throat and practice saying ‘Hello’ before picking up the call but no word, even one, came out. It also took him a little while before mumbling “Hi”. You tried to keep it cool but your voice betrayed you when you responded.

   You always hear his voice but hearing it like this, knowing the words from his mouth right now are just for you and only you can hear, is just so overwhelming. Or maybe it’s even still an understatement. You’re still in a panic but somehow your heart finds comfort in his voice. He apologized for the things he’s been doing, like staying at the café because you’re always there. Little did he know, you kept on coming there with a glimpse of hope of seeing him, too and ended up loving to stay there. You both finally got comfortable and talked for quite awhile. Even laughed with each other like it isn’t your first phone call. He was like doing an indirect confession that he likes you, but you just don’t want to keep your hopes up. As you said to yourself, he’s the type of guy to lead girls on without knowing it himself. Oblivious. But he just told you about him always looking at you and you wondered why all this time you haven’t seen him look at you even once. Not until that “count to three” game. You shut your eyes and curbed yourself from squealing.

“You looked peaceful earlier” you raised a brow and chortled with what he said, asking what does he mean “While everyone was so hype, singing with us, you’re just standing there, closing your eyes, smiling like you’re–” your eyes widened and cut him off “W-what?!” You heard him chuckle while you remembered the feeling of having someone’s eyes on you. That was him? But he wasn’t looking when you flipped your eyes open.

“You’re gonna come listen tomorrow?” He asked after some random chit chats.

“You guys are playing again?”

“Yup. We’ll play Eyeless” You whispered to yourself 'favorite’ when you heard the title “I–I actually wrote that at thé cafe while you’re busy with your notes.” You heard him clearing his throat carefully as if he’s trying for you to not hear. When you said yes, you pictured him smiling brightly from ear to ear, all white teeth are showing and his nose scrunching. You were just about to mutter how he is an epitome of the sun or even perfection itself. Good thing your mouth didn’t betray you. You talked for a little more before finally calling it a day.

“Goodnight, Brian”

   A thousand of butterflies flew in your tummy, all your blood rushed up to your cheeks and fireworks blew in your heart when you heard him say your name (he knows) after he said goodnight. And you thought that was all for today but a text came 

“Next time u catch me looking, dont look away. Even if u’ll do, I’d still be looking at u when u try to look back. Goodnight ♥”

You beamed and mumbled to yourself “Once is a coincidence, but twice is not, huh?”. You bit your lower lip hard before you heaved a sigh as you carefully close your eyes hoping these are all not a dream.


Sequel: Once is enough. Twice is too much

Imagine if Garrus and Shepard are so discreet when they’re with other people (no PDA at all) that Garrus gets a tiny bit insecure and talks to Shepard about it. Shepard doesn’t really know what to do at first (because PDA are not their style) but they eventually realize they could always write what they want to say. 
They have their own Twitter-like account and only a select group of people can see their “tweets”… So why not, right? 

They start with simple things like
“when your bf snipes all enemies so you can focus on the end boss #relationshipgoals”
“when he stops calibrating to give you a kiss #youwishyourpartnerwaslikemine”
etc etc

Of course Joker being Joker thinks this is a COMPETITION
and gets into it
“when she doesn’t break your bones despite having the ability to do it #thebaeisawesome”
“when she alters her code to be with you #truerelationshipgoals”

'House Of Cards' Creator Makes The Case For Twitter To Delete Trump
'House of Cards' creator Beau Willmon unleashed a Twitter rant of his own on why today's Trump allegations should raise alarms for Twitter.

Today’s latest Twitter rant by Donald Trump struck a nerve with many across the nation. Plenty questioned why and asked for the proof that President Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower as the current president was alleging. Others took it as another moment to criticize Trump for his numerous outbursts and comments that have puzzled folks since Trump began his campaign.

But House of Cards creator Beau Willmon decided to take the outburst from the president in a different direction. Instead of questioning the words or ranting about their effect on the country, Willmon instead turned his attention to Twitter and what the social media platform should do with Trump’s accounts. The man behind House of Cards points out that Trump’s tweets have “crossed a line” and that as president, he is in a unique position that no other user on Twitter can claim to be in.

Across 16 tweets, Willmon makes his case and uses Trump’s past actions to form the base for Twitter to delete the accounts.

1. Today’s tantrum is just the latest example of why @realDonaldTrump & @POTUS must be removed from @Twitter. Here’s my full argument…

— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) March 4, 2017

2. Only one person on @Twitter is President of the United States. That comes with a supreme and unique responsibility unlike any other user.

— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) March 4, 2017

3. What the President tweets has real and significant impact on the business of governance, world affairs and national security.

— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) March 4, 2017

4. President Trump has consistently made misleading claims, attacked the judiciary and threatened sovereign states, the press & public.

— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) March 4, 2017

5. His tweets recklessly bypass diplomatic channels without consultation from the State Department, IC or the Pentagon.

— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) March 4, 2017

6. Even as a private citizen it is arguable that he has violated Twitter rules regarding violent threats, harassment and hateful conduct.

— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) March 4, 2017

7. Certainly in the unique position of @POTUS the repercussions and intimations his tweets cross these lines.

— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) March 4, 2017

8. Today’s outburst is broadcasting to foreign leaders his continuing impulsiveness, recklessness, delusion & ignorance about gov’t.

— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) March 4, 2017

9. That makes @RealDonaldTrump’s tweets a national security threat. It emboldens our enemies to take advantage of his flagrant shortcomings.

— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) March 4, 2017

After calling out the president for his “continuing impulsiveness, recklessness, delusion & ignorance about gov’t” and how Trump “makes the argument for himself being a liability to the people” with his tweets and criticisms of the media, Willmon offers some words towards critics of his position. The main target is those who would call it a violation of free speech. To those people, Willmon cites Trump’s treatment of the media and the fact that “no private company owes [Trump] an outlet.”

10. For those who would argue that the removal of his account is a violation of free speech, consider this…

— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) March 4, 2017

11. The WH has retaliated against the press by selectively locking them out, called them “the enemy of the people” & ignored hard questions.

12. But with his behavior on this service, Trump makes the argument for himself being a liability to the people.

13. The President is free to say whatever he wants, and has many of ways of doing so, but no private company owes him an outlet.

14. While you cannot prevent the President from saying reckless things elsewhere, @Twitter is not obligated to facilitate that here.

15. In fact, with your worldwide reach & impact on the media, you have a duty to steer clear of accounts facilitating nat'l security threats

16. @Twitter is amazing. It connects the world. That comes with its own responsibility: to do your part in protecting that world.

It’s a strong thread, especially compared to some of the rants that become lauded on Twitter only to reveal some pretty nasty things about people. It isn’t the first time that someone has urged Twitter to delete the accounts, but it does show that today’s outbursts may be the last straw for some. It’s an odd notion to think that Twitter would delete the President of the United States’ account. The president certainly doesn’t need it to reach the American people or leaders of the world, but blocking him would be such uncharted territory. What would he do and how would it affect Twitter in the end? Would the president just move to Gab?

Who is Adam Kelly and what meaning does he have? Because he recently followed two (?) Ziam accounts on twitter and I just don't understand why and how that is relevant.

Adam Kelly is a Business Hoe who is the Digital Manager for Doyen Global, also known as Team Loammy.  I was going to look for a real photo of him, but I’m really busy setting up my new Kindle, so here’s a gif of him doing some kind of shimmy next to Loammy and looking like a pleasant faced nondescript white man from a distance. Its a pretty thrilling gif, because Liam’s chain narrowly misses clubbing Adam Kelly in the face:

You can tell Adam Kelly does shit because he has a very large man satchel strapped to him. 

Suhhhh, why is Adam Kelly following the ZiamNews significant? Well, two reasons, I think. The first is that it says they are well aware of Ziam as a “ship” and what it means in terms of interfandom relations (and really, any Business Hoe worth their salt would have done a really lengthy study and analysis of their artist’s fandom anyway). The second is that it means they’re likely smart enough to have figured out how to make what other teams might consider a problem work for them. So, with that, I’m pretty interested to see how their solo!Loammy social media strategy shakes it in the next few weeks/months/whatevs.

It wasn't a hack? It's nearly impossible to hack from an iPhone and it was up for 38 minutes. The link wasn't a porn link for the 30 minutes but someone redirected it to that tumblr. Therefore it was deleted. He's not a random person, don't you think it would have been deleted immediately after it was tweeted (like when their management would post from their account and delete it RIGHT after because there was a typo or WRONG LINK). 🤔

it was a hack, why would harry post a photo of louis out of the blue when we know harry rarely uses twitter at all. the ambiguous link is a huge red flag why do you think he would post a random link??? it got taken down rather quick, 38 minutes is quick

remember when harry accidentally liked a nsfw tweet in 2014 and it stayed in his likes all night until he woke up the next morning and deleted it, and liked a bunch of pictures of kitties and puppies. that’s what it looks like when harry does something by accident

ahh,,,,, wonderful,, just copy & paste art just like that why dont cha. :))

please for the love of god dont post my shit on pinterest instagram or twitter. 

I DO HAVE PINTEREST INSTAGRAM & TWITTER accounts

–I NEVER GIVE ANYONE PERMISSION TO POST MY ARTWORK ON ANY OTHER SITES–

i already asked them to take it down, but omg dont do this shit, please,,, im so fucking disappointed sad & angry…

anonymous asked:

Sorry to bother you, but I don't really know how the industry works. I noticed all the Harry fan pics were with people that have public twitters full of pics with celebrities. Who alerts them? Does Harry's PR team call them? I'm perplexed why so many of these pics all of a sudden.

I am sure they’re alerted somehow, but I don’t know if it’s directly from Harry’s team (or whatever team arranged things) or if they’re conveniently fed info from a less obvious source. Like, if I were doing this, and I worked for Harry’s PR team, I’d set up a “fan” account, like a UA account, and make friends with people I know are already into stalking. And then I’d tell those friends, via DM, “I heard from someone I know that Harry’s going to be at Smith & Wollenksy’s tonight. I can’t go but maybe some of you want to?” I do think there are some direct relationships, like the London Stalker Crew, where they fully know what they’re being asked to do, the requests are direct from PR teams, and those people are probably compensated in some way beyond just the pics, either with money or tickets or merch or access to events or something. But I think there are a lot of stalkers – probably most of those associated with UA accounts – who really think that they’re getting inside tips and they aren’t meant to know where they’ll be. For them, I think, it’s more of a game and they think they’re in the know via their “friends” with inside information. I don’t think those stalkers are directly compensated. For them, the reward is feeling like they know more. That plus the opportunity to get pics and build their twitter/insta reputation is sufficient reward. (Though the UAs do get fed a bone every once in a while in the form of “winning” fan contests. This keeps people interested and motivated to participate in the whole process.) So, I think it is all definitely arranged by his team and intentional, but there are different ways of going about it. I think a lot of the stalkers truly believe they were just lucky enough/hard working enough to get the information needed to locate him, while in reality that information was fed to them in a manner that allowed them to believe that they found it on their own.

ARMYS ATTENDING THE CHICAGO WINGS TOUR

THIS IS FOR THE ARMYS ATTENDING THE CHICAGO SHOW OF THE WINGS TOUR.

BTS usually starts off their show with a few songs & then stop to talk for a little bit. Usually one of the boys yell “ARMY” and then wait for a response.

Instead of screaming EVERYBODY BOW QUIETLY as a response. I’m talking about a full 90° bend forward.

They’ve seen excited screaming fans, flash mobs, and have had clothes & flags thrown at them. Let’s switch it up a bit and surprise them.

SPREAD THE WORD. 

Follow our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter account - respectbtschicago.
Screenshot this, Tweet it, post it on Instagram and use the hash tag #respectbtschicago.

LET’S DO THIS ARMYS!!!! LET’S SHOW BTS THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE.

LET’S DO THIS!! We’ve got updates too!

(I DON’T OWN ANY CREDIT FOR THIS POST) (I just saw this on BTS Spring Day MV comment section and thought that why not share it and let the Chicago ARMY know about this)

Dear user of Tumblr

Please do not scroll down this post without retweeting soon mentioned tweet or unless reblogging this post so more people can get to know about this crisic situation. Thank you.

Carter was, and still is, an average man. Hell, even his name is average. Carter. I know like eight Carters…anyway, back at what I was saying.

Although Carter is an average man, it doesn’t mean he doesn’t have dreams. But one dream is way bigger than the others.

Carter Wilkerson wants free Wendy’s chicken nuggets for one year.

Nobody knows for how long Carter had this dream maybe not even Carter himself. But he has it and maybe his dream can come true. But he needs your help and anyone’s one you know as well.

On April 6th 2017, an average man, Carter Wilkerson, usually making lame tweets, has tweeted Wendy’s. He asked, how many retweets will make his dream come true. A few moments later, he got a reply from Wendy’s saying that it will need 18 million of them. Most of people would think that it is impossible, especially when most retweeted post has only something over 3,28 million RTs. But not Carter.

Carter was so dedicated to his dream that he hadn’t hesitated a single second. He took a screenshot of that little conversation and made another tweet begging people to retweet so his dream can come true. And guess what? It is happening!

In just four days, his post was retweeted more than 2,26 million times! But although it is really incredible, it is not enough. He needs more, sadly. So that is the reason, why are we asking you to help. Help Carter, help his dream come true.

Have a Twitter and did not retweet yet? Please do!

Have you retweeted yet? Please reblog so more people can do what you did!

Don’t have an account on Twitter? What about you make one and retweet, please? Thanks!

Carter’s tweet to RT!

Make an account and then RT!

Thank you very much! :)

Casual Summer Reading : What you say, what they see.

A Handbook on Destiheller History, Psychology and Behavior.

Note: This isn’t tagged Destiel so that the nice cool Destiel shippers can avoid this. If you are wandering in the anti tags, you ain’t cool.

JENSEN: Destiel? No, Meh.

Destihellers: Ohk .. Not meaning to be an asshole but Jensen is homophobic and it could be because just like Dean, his dad is homophobic too.Evidence? Here is some meta:Art imitates life.

Someone in SPN crew: Destiel? Where?

Destihellers: Ok, I respect everyone’s opinions but I’d like to say how wrong you are, it is there right in front of you.How can’t you see it? Your show queerbaits all the time. You are WRONG. You need to delete. You don’t understand your own shoe please get off twitter. 

Samantha Smith: Destiel? Ship? What? NO, thanks.

Destihellers: I don’t mean to be rude and this might seem harsh but you are really irrelevant, Samantha. You might have played Mary Winchester but you don’t understand the show and you aren’t even a part of it anymore so please, either ship and ship destiel or just don’t express your opinion. Because it is your opinion and we don’t agree with it and WE are SPNFamily and a part of the show, what you say and think is worthless.

Samantha Smith: Returns to the show.

Destihellers: ……. Well, I can’t wait to see Mary ignore her son Sam, be a mother to Cas and Dean and play a matchmaker for them because Sam can’t even do the role of Destiel Matchmaker correctly. Can he stay on the sides, hopefully dead for a while till Mary, his Mother manages to make Destiel canon in a TV show with audience who don’t know shit about shipping and have been falsely lead to believe for 10 years to believe that Dean Winchester is straight because he fucks too many girls and has relationship with too many of them to be actually straight. 

William Shatner: Destiel, uh not really. 

Destihellers: You are only saying that because you are friends with evil bibros. This is a conspiracy. I won’t believe that you are Misha’s friend because you just disrespected my ship that exists in the fanfictional world. 

William Shatner: This is all just about a ship.

Destihellers: You are using your celebrity power to bully poor Destiel shippers, you should be ashamed of being a celebrity and defending yourself. Being a celebrity automatically means you cannot defend yourself from people questioning your mental capability due to old age. 

Meghan, the Assistant of the new SPN Show Runner: I’ll read a Destiel handbook about how EVERYONE SEES Destiel and why it needs to be canon now.

J2/Bibros/casual non shipper fans: Ok, do it at home though. Not at work. Keep shipping away from the show, thanks. I don’t know how I feel about someone in the crew reading Destiel fanfiction. The show is about Sam and Dean first though.

Destihellers: Oh god, oh Lord I am so hurt and disappointed in the SPNFamily. Oh these few vile evil bibros, worshipers of unholy Wincest. HOW DARE YOU BE RUDE TO SOMEONE IN THE SPN CREW. LOOK AT YOU DARING TO TWEET ANDREW DABB. I CAN SEE YOU ARE TRYING TO GET THE HER FIRED. I can’t believe how horrible they are to the SPN crew its like they forgot only we have the right to do that since the past 6 years. Oh Maghan, you are already our favorite if you didn’t notice with all the asskissing we are doing. You will be a special example serving as evidence in the next ‘Why Supernatural Queerbaits and how its a conspiracy’ Article when Destiel still isn’t Canon in Season 12 finale. You’ll do what Katherine and other people related to the show we spent our time on couldn’t do – Teach Jensen the error of his’ not liking Destiel and loving SamandDean too much he might be one of those evil bibro accounts on twitter/tumblr’ ways. If you can’t do it, we will give you mention you along with Jensen and Jared and all the other professional queerbaiters. 

Jensen: Misha is a friend, he is really-

Destihellers: SEE I TOLD YOU HE IS ALWAYS QUEERBAITING. Its like he thinks he can queerbait like our lord Misha and get away with it. No one else get to queerbait us but Misha without being called a Queerbaiter even if have called him homophobe for many years.

Jensen: Thoughts with Orlando.

Destihellers: SPNFamily is amazing. So much support but I don’t think Jensen has the right to be a decent human being since he doesn’t like the idea of Destiel in Canon and it has already made him homophobic.

Gay/LesbianBisexual/Pansexual/Asexual/Trangender/Etc. fans:  No, not Destiel. No forcing other sexuality on a straight character for representation, thanks.

Destihellers: No, YOU. You are homophobic/biphobic, what do you know? Please fuck off we need representation for the LGBTQA society. Don’t you understand how important it is that Dean be bi and Destiel be canon for the LGBTQA society? 

LGBTQA Society: …. How about helping us and the people in our communities who are facing physical/mental abuse, being abandoned by family, living in poor condition, trying to commit suicide at least once or once every year before we turn 20 instead of trying to turn a stated straight character from a 10 year old TV Show into Bi so you can see some man on man action? 

Destihellers: Here is a handbook for you … see how Destiel is already canon and seen by everyone so that it can actually be officially canon. Thanks. Good Day. Lets all respect each other and live like a family. We love you till you love what we love and see what we see. If not, you can fuck off bye. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t straight, you are homophobic anyway.

——

I hope while you do your light reading this summer on how to identify a destiheller and what to expect when you come across one, this handbook helps you understand the Destihell logic and gives you an understanding of what to expect while dealing with one. Don’t try to use your general logic while dealing with these special creatures. Not being able to grasp their logic might lead to severe case of mental harassment and trauma.

anonymous asked:

Why can we be so sure those are "troll shippers" ? It can be "no shipper trolls disguised as shippers" only to instigate hate against us!

 I guess when you then have shippers creating IG accounts, tagging Mackenzie is nasty vile crap and saying Sam is better off with Cait, and they want Mackenzie to die, people know it’s troll shippers. Also, some of them are known on twitter, I’ve even had a conversation with a known shipper on twitter who has called Mackenzie names on IG. Do you remember? the one that Sam actually responded to when he said that these people have no idea what they’re talking about? I remember that well. And all you have to do is see the names that troll shippers call her on Tumblr are the same as the ones on IG. Is it possible that some people are shit disturbers and creating the accounts to pretend to be shippers? Sure it’s possible, but that doesn’t mean it’s true. And it IS true that shippers have been calling her names on her IG. 

So instead of looking at the possibility/probability of things I do not know happened, I’m going to base my opinion on what I do know happened.
