God knows that if the Establishment can no longer control it, they'll do everything they can to destroy it.

Anybody still think we have a voice?
I think I still have a voice....


At least that's what the government wants me to think.

Well, you can see what happens to people who say things the system (yes, that's a euphemism) doesn't want them to say. Deplatformed and blacklisted, pardon the pun. By people who claim to be powerless victims, even while they openly flex power they claim they haven't got.

So Trent Reznor (of Nine Inch Nails) posted that he's leaving Twitter 'for his mental health'.

Haw.

Doubtful. Number of users, number of posts, and interactions per post are at all time highs. Dems can whine and wail all they want but advertisers will go where the people and the clicks are.

Bold of you to assume that business in this country is even still about business. Sadly, though, we're at full throttle corporatism, at this point, with the line between corporation and government all but erased.

Ask General Motors about that. They won't be back.

Although Disney just shitcanned their CEO. So maybe spending $200 million (not counting marketing) on a $118 million box office like they did with "Lightyear" isn't a sustainable position. :marathon:

Looks like you're wrong about "clicks and accounts"

They will all be back and/or easily replaced. Plus the various subscription and monetization plans will make the company less dependent on individual advertisers. The folks claiming a guy with $200 billion is going to close a $44 billion compa y are fooling nobody but themselves.

Dems are just crying because the playing field is being leveled and they can no longer silence anyone who challenges their chosen political narrative.

Why do you keep bringing "Dems" into this? Makes you look like a partisan hack in the discussion. This isn't about Dems, it's about Musk fucking up a great platform with his bullshit.

Elon already has some of the biggest content producers on YouTube signing up to launch Twitter video services to compete against YouTube. This could almost instantly be a massive new market for twitter plus competition is good and Elon is offering better discoverability and lower fees compared to youtube.



Meanwhile Twitter just got an additional 1.5 million active users in the last week making it the fastest growing social media platform on the internet. They are also looking at adding encrypted messaging and encrypted phone calls. People will pay for these services while becoming a YouTube competitor will open major new markets and content creates will love increased discoverability which let's them keep more of the cash they earn.

Twitter videos don't function as well as the YouTube platform, so he'll need to find some developers to improve the coding.

My wife uses youtube to promote her business with vids and since they merged with google her income has nearly doubled.

Not sure how the Twitter platform intends to compete. Youtube has the largest archive of videos on the planet.

Twitter may have lost more than a million users since Elon Musk took over | MIT Technology Review.Nov 3, 2022

Why people are resigning from Twitter?
Twitter employees on Friday launched a '#RIPTwitter' trend as hundreds of company's employees are estimated to be leaving the beleaguered social media company. The mass resignation at Twitter comes following an ultimatum from new owner Elon Musk that staffers sign up for "long hours at high intensity," or leave.5 days ago

How many Twitter employees quit on Thursday?
In Twitter's internal chat tool, over 500 employees wrote farewell messages on Thursday, a source familiar with the notes said.4 days ago

btw, I've never viewed a "Mr Beast" video, whoever that is.

EDIT: ok I went and checked him out. Not very interesting to me anyway. Didn't define YouTube the way I use it.

LOL Imagine TK Media with tweet vids instead of youtube? We'll see.
