Twitter Is For Narcissists

Oh Naomi. You haven’t been ‘silenced’ or ‘cancelled’, as you freely write on your blog, Spectator opinion piece, Twitter, The Lawyer and regularly speak at conferences. Thank you for reminding us how popular you are.

Please accept that we live in a world where some people aren’t going to agree with your views. Conference organisers are free to invite whoever they want to speak. So if they choose not to invite you to their ‘party’, that’s life I’m afraid.

Rejection can be hard in life. But you cannot expect to live in a world where you MUST be invited everywhere and have everyone sing your praises.
