Emmett Rensin is an editor Vox Media, which is a major media company in the United States. Unlike me, Rensin has a small Twitter profile and no real personal brand, and thus his Tweets don’t go viral or get any attention.
Via his verified Twitter profile, Rensin wrote, “Advice: If Trump comes to your town, start a riot.”
I screen captured it and made his Tweet go viral. As you can see in the screen cap, Rensin only had 7 RTs.

In a since deleted Tweet, Rensin thought it’d be cute to make fun of me. (Archive.)
However my Tweet received over 100,000 views and brought attention to him.
Because of this attention, readers contacted advertisers, and Vox Media suffered a six-figure advertising blow from my single Tweet.
Rensin’s bosses fired him for attempting to incite violence.
Was I wrong to get Emmett Rensin fired from his job at Vox?
I don’t think so, because Rensin is a professional journalist with a verified Twitter account. He lives and dies by the pen.

P.S. I hope Rensin reads Gorilla Mindset to help him through this troubling time.
