Student Uses Twitter To Inspire Kindness - #26Acts

Student Uses Twitter To Inspire Kindness - #26Acts | Random Acts of Kindness | Scoop.it
Brian Williams's insight:

Jeremiah is a Senior at West High School and decided he wanted to lift the spirits of his friends. Rather than go the typical route, he wanted to do so in a way that let it stand out, was anonymous (for a while), and also inspired others to do the same. When he saw someone do something nice, he gave them a compliment. When he saw that someone had a bad day, he lifted their spirits.

Nice is Trending on Twitter: School's Football Captain Beats Cyber Bullies With Kindness Tweets

Nice is Trending on Twitter: School's Football Captain Beats Cyber Bullies With Kindness Tweets | Random Acts of Kindness | Scoop.it

When he saw classmates taunted on Twitter, 17-year-old Kevin Curwick, a high school football captain, decided that online bullying should not be a spectator sport for his Minnesota town.

So he quietly set up a Twitter account, @OsseoNiceThings, to praise students in need of a social facelift.

"She is so good at dancing, she gets more scholarships than D1 athletes," he tweeted about a girl who was attacked by an anonymous account.

Curwick says since the @OsseoNiceThings page started on July 29, the Twitter posts attacking his classmates have disappeared.
