Blagger’s Blog— SocialGlasto, sausage bikes and antisemitism
“Do you think you’re hard, not following me back on Instagram?”
One of the quotes that made it onto Vice Magazine’s ‘All the things we heard at Glastonbury this year’, published after the 49th edition of the festival last weekend.

Nice idea, until the trolls get involved and the corporate account winds uno sending out antisemitic, racist abuse.
