Umberto Eco on socialmedia:

“Social media gives legions of idiots the right to speak when they once only spoke at a bar after a glass of wine, without harming the community. Then they were quickly silenced, but now they have the same right to speak as a Nobel Prize winner. It’s the invasion of the idiots.”

Who are the people who write messages then delete them? If you have to remove it afterwards surely it shouldn't have been written in the first place...
