In this excellent TED talk Jon Ronson warns of the dangers of social media, and twitter in particular. Ronson once took pleasure in the power twitter gave to the masses but as time went on he began to notice the dark side of this power.

Check out my interview with Jon Ronson where we discuss his book on the subject of public shaming.

It's good to talk
