What is your advice about? How to have a twitter debate

  1. Try to disengage emotion and use logical, rational argument only
  2. Don’t try to be clever by looking for opportunities to twist or deliberately misinterpret tweets in order to try and make your fellow man look mad or stupid
  3. Try to stick to the topic of debate rather than diverting to your own political agenda
  4. Resorting to name calling and personal attacks just because you can’t cope with people not agreeing with you does not make you look big or clever. Just agree to disagree.
  5. Try to avoid jumping in where there are already many people arguing against just one person. We wouldn’t do it in real life.
