Teen uses tweets to compliment his classmates
UNDATED (NBC) -- An Iowa City teenager and his friends are killing cyber bullies with kindness. And their classmates are reaping the benefits.
Jeremiah Anthony created a Twitter feed to compliment his fellow West High School classmates after reading a story about cyber bullies, people who hound their victims via social media.
“You shouldn’t be such a coward you have to hide behind a screen and say bad things to people,” he said.
Soon, Anthony and two friends were sending praise to randomly picked classmates, and sometimes teachers, under the Twitter handle @WestHighBros.
They have delivered their compliments in more than 3,000 tweets so far.
“Very creative and wise. You’re an outstanding musician, with your guitar and your voice. Keep being lovely and caring of all,” they said.
