Swish the rapiers of retweets, men

Hamish McKenzie of Pando Daily glorifies fighting on the Internet.

This is old, but I am posting it anyway because its message is eternal. Hamish McKenzie of Pando Daily glorifies fighting on the Internet. It reads like something Theodore Roosevelt would have written, if Roosevelt had a blog, which he no doubt would have titled The Iron Monocle.

A snippet of McKenzie’s call to cyber-arms:

Let’s start a fight on the Internet, and engage in a bout of intellectual one-upmanship. We shall deploy barbs of 140 characters; swish the rapiers of retweets; clobber our opponents with fist-furious faves. No gif shall quell our fury. Our binary biffo will be memorialized in the halls of Hashtag. Our lols will echo off the walls of the World Wide Web.

Bask in the full glory of a fight on the Internet.
