He wrote;


There are people who are committing suicide due to not getting enough likes. Seeking validation in the simulation.  We need a live-streamed meeting with Jack Dorsey Kevin Systrom Mike Krieger Mark Zuckerberg and Evan Spiegal.  Speaking for myself I personally want to participate in social media with the option of not having to show my followers or likes
Having your amount of likes on display for the world to see and judge is like showing how much money you have in the bank or having to write the size of your dick on your t shirt


This is coming after the Washington Times reported that a new study revealed that suicide rates among teenagers have risen, along with their ownership of smartphones and use of social media, suggesting a disturbing link between technology and teen self-harm.
