The article ends with this note by Julia Ioffe:
We live in a time where our dialogue and our politics and our news have been Twitter-ized. We have forgotten what it means to disagree with each other without annihilating each other. We have forgotten what it means to cut people slack, and to forgive their mistakes. I have felt this many times on my own skin, have watched people get furious at me for a comment and then refused to listen to the apology or the explanation. Twitter's wrath is devastating. It is cruel. It is disproportionate.
Leave the Twitter mob. Think for yourself. Listen for yourself. Turn of your political bloodlust. Learn how to disagree as a civilized adult. Stop bullying people.
Just stop it.

We live in an age where almost everyone thinks their opinion, ideas, philosophy’s are the only ones that matter. Narcissism is rampant and an epidemic. If every living being would practice some humility, we might have hope, but I have my doubts.
