Steph Curry Is The Last Person That Should Be Developing An App That Allows Athletes To Avoid Online Criticism
BSO- The California-based company, named Slyce, promises to improve the way athletes and other influential people engage with their followers on social media by making it more organized and filtering out much of the noise.
The platform integrates with Facebook and Twitter and acts as an intermediary between athletes and their fans by sifting through inbound traffic in order to filter out the most relevant interactions.
This is such bullshit. No, I am not talking about allowing athletes to better communicate with genuinely inquisitive fans. That's actually pretty smart. I would imagine it's pretty difficult for them to have a meaningful conversation on the internet when 90% of the people engaging them are more likely to tell them to die in a fire than they are to ask them a reasonable question. What's bullshit is that Steph Curry is the one that is helping to develop this app. If I was any other basketball player in the league I would be pissed that Steph Curry - of all people - is getting in on the ground floor of a product that allows professional athletes to avoid the haters. Talk about the rich getting richer. Isn't Steph doing just fine without sidestepping the 6 self loathing assholes that criticize him on social media? The person that hates Steph Curry the most is Oscar Robertson and I am pretty sure he's still working on trying to send his first e-mail, never mind harassing the world's most likable athlete on twitter. I bet someone is hacking LeBron's computer we speak. Cam Newton's mentions are filled with millions upon millions of racist people that don't yet know they are racist starting off their tweets with "I'm not racist, but...". Tom Brady hasn't seen a message that didn't start with the word "cheater" in well over a year. Peyton Manning probably cornered the market on teabag jokes. Meanwhile Steph Curry is out here making money off technology that makes his online experience as convenient as humanly possible? I think I just found the most hatable thing about Steph Curry and it's the fact that he thinks he deals with enough hatred to need it filtered out his life. Hey Steph, how about you just keep shooting threes and running back down the court before they go in, and stop worrying about the handful of people that are openly critical of you.
