Over the past few months, my following on all platforms has grown exponentially, and so has the hate. It’s gotten so bad that I have security with me and my family at all times. They stay parked outside of our home. They follow us every time we go anywhere.
A few days ago, without telling anyone or making a big deal of it, I decided to make my Instagram and Twitter private.
As I see it, the potential growth of those accounts does not outweigh the quality control issues. And let’s be real, I’ve been around for a long time. Chances are, if you don’t follow me now, you probably don’t rock with me or the things I stand for, and that’s okay. I have a community of people who do. I want to focus on strengthening that community, and building relationships with meaning.
On today’s episode, Shaun breaks down the give and take of having a private account, and how it has shifted the way he looks at media activism forever.
