There really is no end to the craziness that can spread via Twitter. Hoaxes, jokes gone wrong, rumors and downright lies all find their way onto Twitter quite easily, thanks to the fast-paced spread of news on social media and the urge to retweet everything sensational. So perhaps it’s no surprise that a photo of a racist “policy” apparently adopted at a McDonald’s restaurant went viral on Twitter this weekend, combined with the hashtag #seriouslymcdonalds.
Over the past week or so I’ve seen a picture of a dead baby, witnessed some full frontal nudity, and seen a snapshot of a mom feeding her baby while (**clears throat awkwardly**) giving her man “oral pleasure”. But the biggest surprise of all is that I didn’t find these pictures on some snuff or pornography site. I stumbled across them inadvertently while checking out the Trending Topics on Twitter.
