This is going to sound a little paranoid, but do we know if their social media accounts actually belong to them?
If Doug's Facebook account is just a sockpuppet for Mike Michaud, there could be a bunch.
They probably are the only ones with access to the accounts.
But I'd say it's very likely that Michaud sets strict guidelines as to what they can and can't post in regards to CA, and especially this incident. I'd say it's even more likely that he specifically told them what to tweet about the whole incident.
But the fact that Tamara just kept responding to people with CA's "breakdown" of the document just rubs me the wrong way. But that's why I won't personally engage in really reacting to any of the CA staff on social media. It's hard to determine what is genuine, what is under employment guidelines as far as users posts, and what is just a personal opinion.
Ditto, they're just co-workers and have nothing to do with this conflict. No point in knocking them for just wanting to do what they love regardless of what transpired.
That's part of what really bugs me about this whole situation too. In regards to Malcolm and Tamara, they really are the most public, but low ranking employees of CA as of now. They're the ones who are having their names attached to this dumpster fire. Plenty of the contributors are going to be absolutely fine because they have gathered a fanbase directly for their content. But with these two, there's going to be this direct attachment to CA that is no doubt going to hurt them -at least a little bit- for the foreseeable future.
I really am curious where it goes from here. Does CA just disband as a site and remain as a company controlling the NC youtube? Do they just pivot to a Youtuber centered base? I wouldn't be surprised if they just use the buzz from this to try and get some quick views by posting about the drama if they do end up ditching the idea of a community based site. At the end of the day for them I'm sure it's coming down to how they can keep making the same amount of ad revenue as they did when many contributors were on the site.
