Something trolls don’t know...

Something trolls don’t know...

Is that they help me in a couple of different ways.

They prove my point. If I say something along the lines of “White supremacy patriarchy is alive and well”, and there are a bunch of white men in my comments saying misogynist, homophobic, racist shit—I win the argument.

The social media algorithms don’t know the difference between positive or negative comments. So every time someone comments—whether good or bad—the cost of my ad goes down, and my post goes further.

I try to respond to every comment possible because when someone says they love me or my books, I am grateful and enjoy saying thank you. And when someone says something ignorant, I enjoy messing with them. Either way, the interaction helps my message reach more people.

The algorithm will also push my new posts out to people who have commented before—so social media trolls get to hear me yap, yap, yapping about justice, equity, and books. Which is its own special kind of revenge. 🤣

It is also why you shouldn’t comment on something you don’t like—unless you want to help that message go further, or you want more of that in your feed.

My response to seeing stuff I disagree with on the internet is to write my own response—then let trolls boost it for me.

It’s a way to use their hate for good.

This is also an excellent example of why it’s better to be reading a Sydney Rye Mystery rather than scrolling social media.

Social media is rife with trolls who can’t stand to see a woman talking. Especially if she is talking about burning down white supremacist patriarchy.

It’s actually funny to me because they all say the same crap. These people are so far from original. They are clearly brainwashed into believing their own superiority, and that’s leaving them lonely and sad.

I have empathy and compassion for trolls.
I also have cutting words.

I use those to keep the dumb fucks talking. The more they talk, the more readers my posts reach…and the more money I make.

We all know, at the end of the day, I’ve devoted my life to writing female vigilante crime fiction for the money. 😂

*Waits for outraged trolls to show up and accuse me of being shallow and lazy and a novelist for the MONEY.* 🙄

Sydney Rye and her dog, Blue, exact justice with a vengeance. The dog doesn’t die, but the bad guys do. It’s even more fun than seeing trolls get eviscerated while they make me money. 😉
