10 deletes “mean tweet” request
10 asked social media for controversial tweets, but the feedback was so bad it hit delete.
A recent campaign with personalities reading “mean tweets” may have backfired for Network 10 -not because of wha went to air, but because of what will not.
The idea of the campaign was presumably to make light of the worst in social media, which has previously been used around the world as a way of addressing the hate and hopefully reducing it….
But 10 has now deleted a recent tweet in which it asked social media users to send their worst.
“Please quote this tweet with your most controversial Channel 10 opinion, we love controversial Channel 10 opinions” it tweeted yesterday.
Plenty did just that…. about shows, programming, personalities, corporate and public relations. Some of it is too hot to republish here, but this here’s a taste of the feedback….
Would love to see bold and opinionated trans women, young and old women, fat women, deep-throated LAUGHING women, wildly accomplished women, all the brown and black women, the powerful, the underrepresented… @channel10aus

Stop equating 'youth programming' with dumbed down crap reality shows. Find the Australian talent online and give them the opportunity and time to develop shows. Use diverse casting, put talent ahead of bimbo looks. Film programs outside of Vic/NSW/QLD.
