It’s a horrendous problem in the Forces too, with some vomit inducing results. Including one young female squaddie proceeding to badly act out a scene of pretending to die on Ops. Incredibly stupid and insulting to the men and women that have actually died or had life changing injuries.
There’s also an absolute toilet of a squaddie in YouTube gobbing off thinking he’s 10 men, when he’s just a driver in the RLC, and the chain of command let his cringeworthy content continue.
You are right, it should be jumped on from above, they should be charged for it. Bringing their unit into disrepute and breaching PERSEC.
There’s plenty of pages that collect these tiktoks and allow the comments section to completely rip them apart.
The problem is all the officers are all over social media thinking they are some kind of celebrity, when they need to wind their necks in, get off social media and do their jobs. All it does is annoy everyone under their Command. You aren’t getting paid to be an online personality, you are getting paid to do a job.
No wonder morale and retention in the forces is so low and it’s in the toilet. I can’t speak for the cadets but the Forces and the chain of command need to completely shut down their Twitter, and seriously limit and moniter their other social media use.
It’s a bit harder for you guys as it’s the demographic you want to reach that’s using it all.
