If social media has come for many as a boon then for the others it has already become hell. The main aim of the social media when it all started was to share opinions on various subjects with relative ease. But after almost a decade and a half what is observed is that different opinions have actually lead to online quarrels and in some cases it has even reached the extreme mode of hate.
Trolling the word in itself is quite an interesting one. For some who can’t bear to stand before a difference of opinion, for someone else, it is the safest or the most innocent way to criticize someone’s opinion which is different than his or hers. But when trolling becomes a habit it can create headache for many and it may even lead to instigate something really dangerous. You can’t control trolling easily because you can’t control someone’s head who is sitting far away from you. But you can certainly control your Twitter settings and can avoid people who use some extremely filthy language regularly.
