Ok, well to start off, I don’t consider myself part of the twitter fandom of 5H. The only tweets I see are from the girls themselves. Any fan tweets I see are when they’re posted on tumblr.
I think that because the girls are more active on twitter, they’re more accessible to fans, and in turn, fans are able to reach out to them whenever they want, however they want. And because this is social media (tumblr included), they don’t have to show who they are, what they look like, where they live etc. Just as it’s easy to show love for them, it’s very easy to display your displeasure, your hate towards them for everyone to see. You can do that on tumblr too of course, but anyone can send them a message and the girls can choose not to post and just delete the message.
On tumblr, we know how precious it is when Camila and Lauren (the other girls are hardly ever on here anyways lol) answer asks because it doesn’t happen very often so I think the majority of us don’t take that for granted. But maybe they do get a lot of hate here and we just don’t see it.
There’s been plenty of drama on both sides so no one can claim innocence lol. But I think it’s more pronounced on twitter because the girls have tended to be more involved there.
Now, I’m not saying that tumblr is better than twitter because twitter gets trends going like nobody’s business. It’s send the girls messages and shows how we feel as a whole fandom and it shows how powerful we can be.
I think there’s just a different attitude between the two and partly because of the way tumblr and twitter are structured and used. And I don’t think it’s a secret that there is a bit of dislike between the two, but at the end of the day, we’re all here for the girls. We all voted our fingers off for that VMA award. It’s natural that a huge family bickers right? Lol.
