This Twitter conversation embodies why I try to remain polite in my online interactions. If this inspires one person to be nicer online, then I will consider this worth my time.
Last week I had an interesting conversation with @NukeTheWha1es (Hereafter to be known as NTW) on Twitter. I had a previous discussion with NTW that same day, but it wasn’t as memorable as this one.
I’ll admit this one started because I was stalking his Timeline looking to see if he was online because if I recall correctly, it seemed he was avoiding answering a question of mine and I wanted to see if he really was, or if he was just offline. I try to do this because nothing irritates me more than having my mentions plugged up with impatient tweets like “Well?”, “No answer?”, “Run away?” When in reality, reality just called and I was unable to be online at that time. Ergo, I try not be annoyingly impatient to others.

Let’s just get this out of the way—I debate theists on Twitter a lot. A LOT. Anyone that follows me on Twitter (@Atheist_Eh@CultOfEh) knows this. Not just theists though, I’ve debated atheists on subjects before too, which I always enjoy. Point is, I debate on Twitter a lot.
