Social Media Mob Fail, Twits Target SCOTUSblog over SCOTUS decision

Yes it’s sadly true. A blog that covers the Supreme Court has spent the entire day responding, in a most humorous way, to tweets blasting them as if they were the Supreme Court itself.

Dear Internet, SCOTUSblog Is Not the Supreme Court

I’m generally not a big fan of social media mobs, they tend to not actually accomplish much and degrade into personal insults rather quickly, because well, some people just can’t have an actual disagreement about anything without declaring people they disagree with as something less than human. But when the mob actually targets the wrong account, well now you they look kind of ignorant, and that is no way to get your message out!
