Dan Harmon, co-creator of Rick & Morty and creator of Community, has been known to enter into the occasional Twitter fight with those who disagree with him. Time and time again, however, he's found that picking a fight with a troll leads only to suffering. That's why he created this Twitter flow-chart that helps you make a decision whether or not to reply to a tweet.
If everyone on Twitter followed this chart, the world would be a better place.
Twitter users were eager to implement the new procedure.
But some were concerned with their ability to successfully execute one stage of the process in particular:
Can You Be Nice? I can ,I just choose not to. Should be Will you be Nice?— Larry Grenier (@LJGreni) March 9, 2018
And, to be fair, the chart also had just a few problems.
The amount of ppl not knowing where to start is just fantastic— ☔️ An-D ʕ•ﻌ•ʔ (@andysancheesy) March 9, 2018
But, for the most part, the chart seemed to inspire a rare moment of peace and love on Twitter.
oh dan, i love u for posting this, i dont think ive ever expected a reply from you, i tend to show u love and peace out, but i think this will help quite a few people out who are stressing about why u wont reply to them, ure a good dude harmon, a good dude— Jonathan Cook (@heyitscooker) March 9, 2018
Perhaps the chart could be spread across the entire internet!
It would stop mean things like this from happening:
i like to reply to bad tweets, say something mean, and then mute the person i'm replying to as well as the entire thread— goth mom (@casfucker4real) March 9, 2018
Not unlike his show, fans found themselves touched in a melancholy way by the tweet. Keep up the good work, Mr. Harmon - perhaps someday Twitter can be much nicer than it is now.
