Jeremiah, High School Junior, Creates Social Accounts To Spread Compliments At School (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

To combat bullying and boost positivity at his school, one student is going online and posting compliments on Twitter about many of his classmates. His account, @westhighbros, has tweeted over 3,000 nice messages since it launched in October 2011.

A new video called "A Sincere Compliment," uploaded by HooplaHa -- a website dedicated to spreading good news -- shares Jeremiah's inspiring story.

"We just send compliments to people who we think are feeling bad a certain day or who have done something really good, like winning a state title," he explained. "I believe that showing the goodness in people is very integral to our account, because so many people on Twitter and Facebook get cyberbullied because they're less than perfect."
