It's another day ending in Y, so writer Nick Spencer went on a Twitter rant this morning regarding the jaw-dropping degradation and destruction of the global conversation thanks to Twitter.
It's kind of jaw-dropping to step back and look at how this site has degraded and destroyed the global conversation. It's a straight line.— Nick Spencer (@nickspencer) April 15, 2017
It's a weird fuckin world where writing a story where fascists are the unambiguous villains makes you a fascist sympathizer.— Nick Spencer (@nickspencer) April 17, 2017
Jude Traitor compiled a great list of Spencer's ramblings and exchanges with writers Anthony Oliveira and Mags Visaggio, which can be seen here.
Writer Alex de Campi gave her theory on why Marvel doesn't rein in one of their top writers: They need a scapegoat for when Secret Empire fails.
So if you're wondering why those in power aren't restraining NS, realize when Secret Empire fails (and it will), they will need a scapegoat.— Alex de Campi (@alexdecampi) April 17, 2017
So the fact that NS has dug himself in a hole so deep he's about to hit magma? Well, that's great for his employers. It's insurance.— Alex de Campi (@alexdecampi) April 17, 2017
So let's all sit back and wait for that first punch then, shall we?— Alex de Campi (@alexdecampi) April 17, 2017
What's the first punch de Campi is referring to? Could it be this one?
Just because I see people drawing an inaccurate line: once the nazi takes a swing, totally fair game. That's my read.— Nick Spencer (@nickspencer) April 17, 2017
Will Secret Empire be the downfall of Spencer? Fingers crossed, even if it means more tweeting from Spencer.
