I was surprised when I started noticing tweets by comic book writer and tantrum thrower Mark Waid in my Twitter feed. He raged quit Twitter some time ago and it’s been a while since I’ve read anything from him on Twitter. Here was the last thing he wrote before taking his Twitter ball and going home:
Now that he’s logging back into Twitter and saying things again, I’m seeing him in my feed. It doesn’t seem from his current Twitter offerings that he’s claimed down all that much.
Here’s a tweet where he says YouTuber Capn Cummings, currently deployed serving in the U.S. military, harasses young women and readers should stay away from him:
That’s a heavy accusation to throw around, serial harasser of young women, especially when it’s not backed up by even a shred of evidence. It just makes it seem like Paul Cummings is yet another sexual weirdo like all the other sexual weirdos in the news lately. The point is, he’s not.
Mark Waid, of course, knows this because he is a writer of words. It’s what he does for a living. He takes words, throws them down in a specific order so that the reader comes to an intended conclusion.
I think Mark Waid is a talented writer, but a terrible human being with mental problems.
