Black Mirror Reflection: Come Together America

By Christian Lindley

My episode takes place several years into the future. At this time, around 2040, social media and technology have really taken off. There have been several new social media websites invented, and everybody is amazed by social media and technology, even more than they are today.

Everybody tries to make themselves out to be something bigger and badder than they really are in real life. There’s a lot of division during this time just like there is today.

The wealthy have their own click that they hang with, and the poorer people have their own class of people. Racism is still a major problem, and it doesn’t seem like people get along very well.

The main character of the episode, Timothy, wants to put an end to the problem of division in the world today. Timothy is a 22-year-old college student who doesn’t have very many friends and doesn’t really fit in with most kids his age.

One day, Timothy looks on his social media page and on his newsfeed and sees nothing but bickering, whining, fussing, and terrible things. Timothy decides he wants to put a stop to it once and for all.

Timothy, with the help of his only two friends, Andrew and Montana, decides to create his own social media website. Timothy and his friends decide to call it CTA, which stands for Come Together America.

This social media website is a lot like Facebook and Twitter except there is no negativity whatsoever. People who follow make CTA accounts and can only talk positively about other races and classes of people.

At first, there are a lot of people who are sort of against the idea of this social media site, but some are not. It takes time, but people of different classes and races become more interested in this site.

They talk about their problems and differences in a civil manner, and a lot of these problems are solved. This social media site ends up getting over 10 million people who create accounts, and every post on this site is positive and helps America grow closer every day.

By 2044, nearly all our differences are gone and people are seen for who they are instead of what they wear, or how they look, or how much money they have in their bank account.

Timothy ends up making over $25 million dollars because of the invention of this website, and he splits the money with his friends. Timothy, Montana, and Andrew are legends forever.
