shot Oct. 30, thank you to “The Buzz!” production team for their patience, i had cramps that day. Thanks thanks! And thank you also to the hosts for the upbeat intro and voice-over!
A good empirical study to make, too, is: What sort of people engage in bullying or “paninira” in the internet? those that don’t involve public interest or issues. – A psychological- profile- sort- of- study. We could probably ask the psychologists: My theory is that, those who engage in this (bullying, paninira in the internet) have low self-esteem. Just a theory — Let’s ask our friends in psych. (i probably read that somewhere, it’s not even original, or my siblings who’ve worked in the psych ward probably mentioned it in a conversation, or sumthin’) What is the cause of low self-esteem? — i don’t know, it’s probably complicated, ask the psychologists! (criminals however are another matter). Thank god it’s Friday! Happy weekend, y’all!
Here, (in the discussion tomorrow), it’s both about entertainment and the new media.
“The Buzz” takes on impersonators in the Twitterverse, or among Twitter users — in particular, those who steal the identities of celebrities and create ”fake” Twitter accounts. (yes, it is a form of stealing; one’s identity is part of one’s person; reputation is considered property by law and therefore, when another person pretends to be you and conducts transactions and sends messages pretending to be you, it’s a form of theft — “identity theft” (when the impersonator manages to mulct money through it, it’s also swindling or estafa.)
What do you do when you are being impersonated in a Twitter account?

[thank you to the The Buzz staff for giving me time to fix myself i had/ am having cramps today. never took/ take medicine for any and therefore arrived a little late for the interview: Thank you for your patience, sweeties. Thanks to “Khrysta’s Kollezione” again. the interview was probably mostly headshots so in case you don’t see the item from “Khrysta’s Kolezzione”, it was aquamarine, light, lots of ruffles, here it is, shot 30 minutes after the interview, comfortable and breezy fabric and cut , just to show my appreciation, hope didn’t look like i was in pain during the interview)
As promised, here it is: the video clip that accompanies the legal discussion of the previous posts; a 3-minute clip from the two-hour show, “The Buzz” produced by ABS-CBN Channel 2 last Sunday, April 11, 2010, used here non-commercially for academic purposes. Hope it’s useful!
