The Anthony case was the first big time case to capture social media and it was even watched and reactions of peeps used during the trial. We can expect no less, maybe more, for the Zimmerman trial when it goes before a Jury.
Twitter users are embroiled in bitter opinion battles daily on the Trayvon matter, while Casey Anthony followers are trying to get a boycott going to prevent her from being paid for interviews, books, appearances, whatever.
Those who proclaim nothing but hate for Anthony are her most avid followers and the same thing is showing up regarding George Zimmerman. Google searches and mentions of both Anthony and Zimmerman come from their haters far more than supporters. Haters keep Anthony alive in cyberland and will no doubt do the same for Zimmerman.
Peeps take sides, like this one but not that one. All normal as most are more comfortable with like minded peeps – but if a Zimmerman supporter, you get called a racist and with Casey Anthony you get accused of supporting the killing of babies!! FGS!!
Casey haters have created a world of their own to live in and you can bet the Martin-Zimmerman haters will do the same. When that occurs you can throw out the idea of ever seeing anything factual or correct on social media. Everything peeps tweet, post will be held strictly to the standards of their own view point and liking. MSM, unfortunately, did the same with Anthony and have done it with Zimmerman – difference being no one cared too much when it was done to Casey Anthony – but they have been held to task over false information and false portrayals of Zimmerman!
The only weapons social media users have, other than their keyboards, are the block and the ban. LMAO!! It is used often and with great glee by most. Twitter users block those they don’t like and Facebook, blogs and forums use the ban to exact punishment for whatever reason!
The days ahead will tax most peeps nerves to say the least – but if you’re game and determined to stick it out – order more popcorn (a lot) because Zimmerman will go to trial and Casey Anthony is bound to hit the airwaves sooner rather than later.
Buckle up and buy a new popcorn popper!
