Social media is a double-edged sword. In one side it connects the world closer for good while on another it is for mercenaries.

Mercenaries on social media are a set of people who are very prejudiced and biased. They are also agenda driven. In the past, we have seen many deaths because of these people. They spread fake news, provocate a specific group or take a potshot at an individual or an organization. Mercenaries like mob justice and immediate attention.

It is too easy to take a side, respond out of impulse on social media. Being rational and logical, knowing the entire picture helps.

We are in election season and mercenaries are loud out.
