Reminds me of that story of a student who was in a museum with their class. They were googling on their phone to get more information about an art piece and its original artist, but their teacher immediately jumped on the conclusion that they were on social media or something.
As if the Internet wasn't a source of info...
To anyone wondering why I am saying all of this now...
Someone on birdsite was talking about a Looney Tunes cartoon that was released back in WW2, only saying that it was full of racism, which is a fact.
Someone else quote-retweeted, claiming that the author of the tweet didn't know the context and was trying to "cancel" the cartoon, before saying "millennials seem to think world history began in the late 2000s".
Nowhere did the author of the original tweet complained about the cartoon or was trying to "cancel" it.
If that person had scrolled further down the thread. they would have seen the tweet where they clearly said that they were aware the cartoon was WW2 propaganda. They only wanted to bring discussion and give insight, as some people didn't know about said cartoon.
