Life is full of negativity which is why many of us use the internet as an escape from the harsh reality. But now the tables have turned because the internet has become more toxic and has more negativities than reality. American actor and cultural icon Tom Hanks acknowledges the ‘good’ side of the internet to show that there’s some good left on the worldwide web. He did so by reading some of the nicest tweets and reacting to each of them.
In November 2019, Twitter Movies posted a video of Hanks reading some of the most uplifting tweets. It was basically the ‘good’ version of Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets where celebrities read the rudest tweets about them. In return, celebrities will make the most epic clapbacks to their haters. While the popular segment is nothing short of entertaining, it just further confirms that Twitter and other social media platforms are full of animosity and hatred.
