James Blunt ₫@JamesBlunt 23. Jan. *Check out my 12 inch…*
*I’ve got something huge to show you -*

Should this kind of PROMO striptease demonstrate a new degree of openness? And that means maybe: look at me, now I am completely naked, that’s me - there is nothing to hide (quite blunty).

And it reminds me also on a part of a short story which was read by the writer himself in a talk show last weekend:
“...Why do lots of singers present themselves in (music)-videos so extremely revealing? The music would not require it. So it is believed the idea behind it is: The singers have no talent to sing – they feel sorry for that. That's the reason why they show us parts of their body which would be seen only in the sauna or in pornographic films. But the opposite could be also horrible: a clumsy unprofessional working pornographic actor who sings as compensation...”

But once more it is to be seen, J. B. has got a lot of different talents.

This paper is not only about James.

How to tame Twitter trolls: be Blunt
The Times (London), January 30, 2017, p. 3.
By Mark Bridge

At first glance he may have seemed the perfect soft target for online trolls.

Known as a former guards officer and singer of the saccharine You're Beautiful, there was little in his biography to indicate that James Blunt would become a master of the funny, brutal Twitter takedown.

The 42-year-old musician has, however, gained a huge social media fan base for his witty -- and regularly self-effacing -- barbs, including telling his 1.3m followers: "If you thought 2016 was bad -- I'm releasing an album in 2017".

When last year someone tweeted: "Who the f*** invited James Blunt to the Invictus Games?" he answered: "Prince Harry. By text. BOOM!" His replies are often much harsher, however, and routinely risque. When somebody tweeted: "James Blunt has a twitter, what would he even tweet about?" the singer hit back with the oldest playground insult, concerning the troll's mother. His latest quip is unprintable but gained 22,000 "likes".

The upshot is that he has gained many followers who are not fans of his music and he has decisively overturned his reputation for being boring or overly nice. Like stand-up comics whose treatment of hecklers becomes part of their schtick, thickskinned tweeters can undoubtedly turn troll attacks to their advantage.

Blunt decided on a strategy from his first day on Twitter. As he explained to Radio Times: "I thought, I am not going to take that seriously, I am going to laugh at them and I am going to laugh at myself.

"So as soon as I was on Twitter I started doing that. My record label immediately asked me to stop as it opened Pandora's box." Thankfully for the internet, he didn't listen.

JK Rowling and the actor Danny Dyer are also famous for their savage replies. The Harry Potter author suggested that one misogynist troll buy a manhood-enlarger, while the East-Enders' star routinely mocks the personal appearance of his detractors. "Mate, you look like an earthworm who's whacked a hoodie on," is one typical response.

Failing the no-holds-barred approach, the polite, cool comeback is another winning strategy. Wayne Rooney's breezy reply to anonymous trolls attacking his grammar last week has been hailed as a masterclass. After he tweeted that his team's "fans was unbelievable" at Manchester United's 3-2 aggregate win over Hull City in the EFL Cup semi-final, one troll asked: "Does Rooney have any GCSEs?" "No I don't," the England captain and Manchester United's all-time leading goalscorer answered, adding two sunglass-wearing emojis.

This brought the troll's tweet to the notice of Rooney's 14.2 million followers who responded with a barrage of insults and jokes, such as: "I bet you have a master's degree and still work at Asda."

The offender promptly backed down, having been thoroughly "owned", in internet speak. "In all seriousness tho, Rooney's reply was class, wish he and footballers in general interacted with fans more often," he conceded.

Some Twitter trolling can be more sinister and often demands a serious response, however. Studies suggest that regular trolling may be associated with personality disorders including psychopathy. Anonymous trolls have subjected victims to vicious and long-running campaigns of threats and harassment.

Last year two Twitter users were convicted of racially-aggravated harassment after hurling antisemitic abuse and death threats at the Labour MP Juliana Berger. One, John Nimmo, of South Shields, is a repeat offender, having previously served time for harassing feminist campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez. Nimmo was first unmasked not by police but by a BBC Newsnight producer who won his confidence.

In October the Crown Prosecution Service published new guidelines to clarify the sorts of online trolling that could lead to criminal charges.

Victims can also block offenders to prevent them seeing their tweets and report them to Twitter for possible sanctions. The company can close accounts for threats, harassment or "hateful conduct".

Nevertheless, most serial offenders evade legal consequences and many of those who are banned by Twitter simply start over again with a new profile. The model Katie Price is campaigning for tougher action from the government after trolls directed regular abuse against her disabled son, Harvey. Mark Williams, of Stockton-on-Tees in Co Durham, who called the 14-year-old boy a "c***", has been sacked from his work at a window manufacturing company after he was unmasked by The Sun last week. Such outcomes remain rare.

In the meantime experts recommend that ordinary victims of trolling report serious cases to the police and Twitter and otherwise adopt a policy of dignified silence, only attempting Blunt's tactics if they're prepared for the long fight.

Lucy Hume, associate director at Debrett's, the experts on etiquette and social skills, said: "A witty or clever response to an offensive tweet can be satisfying in the short term and may garner public support. But remember that you're unlikely ever to get the last word in the twittersphere.

"Any form of response lets the troll know that you have read their message, and is likely to be interpreted as encouragement. Similarly retweeting an offensive tweet to shame the troll into submission only gives them more exposure, which is exactly what they're looking for."

Stars give as good as they get
The model Gigi Hadid, below, gets a bitchy comment "Practise how to walk properly instead of having a new bf [boyfriend] every 2 weeks." Hadid: "I've dated 3 guys in 3 years, hun. My walk can always get better; I hope the unrelated bitterness in ur heart can too."

JK Rowling, left, replies to criticism from a church about a same-sex marriage of Dumbledore and Gandalf "Alas, the sheer awesomeness of such a union in such a place would blow your tiny bigoted minds out of your thick sloping skulls."

Danny Dyer and columnist Katie Hopkins "Dyer's girlfriend went the full Lorena Bobbitt; being proposed to removes a man's genitals." Dyer: "I'd pay you a compliment coz I know it upsets ya, but I'll be b*******d if I can think of one."

The James Blunt fan call was for the Nightly Show which is tomorrow I believe. I received an email today asking for a contact number and a photo of myself! I know it's usual practice for casting companies but I was still disappointed needless to say I didn't send either! Can't afford the train fare anyway

I got a call asking if I'd be interested in being part of the show but I think I may have been to normal. Didn't watch the actual show so don't know what they did but speaking to the guy on the phone I take it they wanted people who would happily be odd and mad on tv

Yesterday, James posted one of his most famous retorts to... Donald Trump! Twitter is inundated of retweets and it's hard to find the information related to his current tour among the flurry.

https://twitter.com/JamesBlunt/status/969672953154736128

So far, he's got 76K likes and 12K retweets... and he has not been blocked by Donald... not yet!

Update March 4th
18K retweets and 114K likes
... and the madness is still going on
