Digital Citizen Paragraph

Digital citizenship is a set of rules to follow online, similar to manners. In order to follow these manners you need to THINK. You should always think before you post. In fact, doing this is so important that you could get in trouble by the law if you don't. You could get sued, arrested, and even fined. Think stands for is it True? Is it Helpful? Is it Inspiring? Is it Necessary? Most of all, is it Kind? If you follow all these rules, you can avoid plagiarism, copyright, cyber bullying, and overall, be safe online.
