"But since the anonymity of the Internet allows shitty people to evolve into their shittiest form like a bunch of sociopathic Pokemon, Williams’ account was almost immediately inundated with hateful comments and horrific pictures, reportedly including graphic Photoshopped renditions of her father’s dead body."

Shameless self promotion!
If you like the things I write about find me on Twitter and say so! Or if you don’t then you can tell me to sod off!
I have to get better at Twitter for class so I’m doing a cross promotion thing.
If you don’t want to ever seen non-journalist stuff then block Nonthematic post on Savior and you won’t see any more.

This is an extremely misleading article. While factual, it’s misleading. Darius Rucker covered the song, but it was adapted from Dylan by Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show. 

Sloppy writing and buzzword use. Hop onto the bigger name.

I’m reblogging this from my personal blog because it’s such an good example of terrible headline writing and SEO.

Want to intern at Tumblr? Fuck Yeah!

I got started as an intern at Tumblr over 2 and half years ago running the meetups platform (aka stuffing envelopes) for the Community Team, and now I am full-time employed at Tumblr as the Arts Evangelist on the Outreach Team — the system works! Apply!

I was going to make a post basically saying this same thing a few minutes ago, but got disillusioned with it. JR was able to put it simpler and better than I could have. -A
