SapientNitro Takes a Contemporary Approach Towards Autism

Here’s a perfect Monday scoop for ya. How do you get the world to feel what it’s like to have autism? Take away your Facebook and Twitter for a day. Social communication is one of the biggest challenges for people with autism so on November 1, by shutting down social networks, people can have some idea of what it’s like.

Great! No Facebook for a day? What about our farms? The concept is understandable but will it be effective? It’s for sure going to get everyone talking and piss a ton of people off in the process but at the end of the day will it have served its purpose? Will people understand and appreciate what it’s all about or be hateful because they can’t tweet about the big shit they just took.
