pastacrossing⁷ 🐍✨ @pastasaucaI want to give some context about what a community manager does and why they are so necessary. An audience or fandom that is unmanaged will become abusive, we know this for a fact. Unless a framework is set up or leaders are being moral role models, fandom will become abusive.
