The Post

She was having the time of her life.

She didn’t start it, but she’d seen “the game” on her feed and thought, for no particular reason, to do the same.

To her surprise, her stats skyrocketed, soaring to heights she’d never seen before. Her daily motivational quotes, Bible verses and haikus only earned her five to eight likes (at most). But The Post? It was phenomenal in comparison.

Leave a sticker comment, then I’ll like it and I’ll message you a name. Afterwards, you’ll come back to this post and comment about how you feel towards that person. Don’t worry, we’ll keep the name to ourselves, ’till death do us part! 😉

And people just fell for it. Notifications flooded in. She sent out names, and was barraged with comments. – some good (“I appreciate her contributions.”), but mostly awful (“I SO HATE HIS GUTS, I WISH HE’D GO DIE IN A FIRE KTNXBYE”) and controversial (“Okay, I don’t really want to say this because I’ve known her a really long time, but what the heck. She’s such a drama queen!”).

In a matter of minutes, The Post had become home to a full-scale gossiping ecosystem, and she relished being at the center of it.

People tearing each other to shreds in front of the whole world was just too much fun to watch.
