Large amount of posts appeared today in regional twitosphere with hashtag #IHateSerbiaAndSerbianPeople, written in English, and posted by a great number of users. It is assumed that the great percentage of twitter users who tweeted with this hashtag is from Kosovo and Metohija or Albania.
This was enough for a large number of users from Serbia to react, as well as other who feel differently about the Serbs, causing a real mini-twitter warfare between the users.
Several users warned about the chauvinistic posts spreading on the network, so a reaction by the administrators could easily take place. According to the rules of this social network, such behavior is not tolerated and it could easily happen that the users who broke the rules become banned from Twitter.
I’m Serbian and I’m proud of that.I don’t hate Albania and Albanian people. but #IHateSerbiaAndSerbianPeople trend is really insulting.
