Premise: A simple tweet escalates into the mother of all flame wars.

In essence a whimsical idea goes viral, spawning controversy, then photo spoofs, fake videos, a dance craze, and finally something much worse.

Rating: Great fun. A short-short with a nifty premise spoofing how quickly social media can spiral out of control into something less than beneficial to humanity, especially when humans aren’t the only beings with access to the web. An ultimately grim satire nevertheless suffused with enough humour to make me smile. I like it.
