Time to pay the piper, bitches. If these employees hadn't been complete assholes, this probably wouldn't have been necessary. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

Imagine your social media operation being bought by a thin-skinned troll.
As opposed to 'just' being run and populated by mindless leftist shitheads that used said platform to sway an election?

No wonder so many of the mindless leftist shitheads are now losing their pathetic little minds.

I had not heard that Twitter swayed an election. Who owns that whacky conspiracy theory?

Im so confused as to what glorious revenge and victory you think awaits you here…

It is really bizarre that you seem to live vicariously through a con man buying a company so he might reinstate the account of another conman so he can start churning out lying turds again…

And in that context you feel a sense of glorious victory.

****ing. Weird.

It would be funny to buy faux and surprise the fauxies with a cast of actual journalists covering news. I don't know if it would be 44 billion dollars funny, but it would definitely be funny.

I'm not certain, I don't follow it. I don't think there's an Android app, so no way to look inside.

Why don't you try that with CNN; they might actually gain an audience.

I said as much in another thread on the topic. The overreactions are pretty bizarre to me from both sides of the spectrum.

Why not? It was supposed to be a right wing "free speech" utopia. Why weren't you interested in it?



Problem solved!

Link didn't work for me.

The elephant in the room is user engagement, and the basic truth is you need to have adversaries to drive engagement and have tweets make it as news pieces. You're simply not going to get that from echo chambers.

Seems pretty standard to me. One side upset they are losing their power to people they dont like. One side happy they are taking power from people they dont like. Its just a game for most people.

Personally Im hopeful to get back on twitter because I miss the wide variety of information that could be found there.

well said.
These people seem to think they are victims of some vast LW conspiracy to silence them. They of course learned this through the vast RW media sphere.....

Plus, it is typical fox new bullshit fake news and spin 'distraught'. That's what right wingers do, make up fictitious or exaggerating things. Oh, by the way, whenever there is a takeover of any company employees are going to be concerned. Who knows if the new owner would clean house and they don't have a job.

But of course, right wing Taliban trolls try to spin it as something else.
