That’s definitely something I agree with you on. Going off of my DuckTales fandom experience on both Tumblr and Twitter, so I’m starting to become more convinced that DuckTWT may be better than DT17 Tumblr.
Throughout season 3 and all of the hiatuses, I have been seeing a lot of positivity and great content over on Twitter. Whether it was tweeting their reactions to moments from the episodes’ premieres, what they loved about it and what their favorite parts were, sharing headcanons and theories about upcoming episodes, or whatever, I loved seeing what a lot of DT17 fans were doing on Twitter. Yes, it does have a few bumps in the road (which is expected because no fandom is perfect), but from what I’ve seen, they manage to at least get whatever’s on their minds out of their systems and shake it off before moving on. I think it’s because of Twitter’s 280-character limit, so they just dive straight to the point in a few tweets or more. And since you’ve mentioned Della, from what I’ve seen, I may be convinced that DuckTWT may be better at praising her for being an awesome character all around, which especially shows through their annoyance whenever they hear all the repetitive bad takes regarding her.
Speaking of repetitive bad takes, I hate how increasingly negative DT17 Tumblr in general has become. A couple of days after the finale aired, a friend of mine on Discord commented how “Tumblr’s just full of assholes” in regards to what the fandom’s portion of bad people are on each social media platform and it has stuck with me ever since. I can’t shake the feeling that more people here have become cynical, pessimistic, and Nostalgia Critic/CinemaSins levels of condescending, nitpicky, and negatively critical over everything about the show, especially with the third season and the finale (which has recieved a huge amount of positive reception on websites like Twitter and Den of Geeks). I personally believe there’s a difference between critiquing/constructively criticizing about something and criticizing too much/complaining over anything and everything. I still have a small number of DuckTales tags blacklisted following the premiere of the finale because I’m afraid of what discourse I might come across either on my dashboard or while exploring Tumblr.
Honestly, nowadays, I lowkey feel rather embarrassed to call myself a DuckTales (2017) fan on Tumblr. I definitely didn’t feel that way when I started catching up on the show and I certainly don’t feel the same way over on Twitter.
