The small, community focused aspect of Bluesky is really what makes it work right now. It's not like Twitter where you can just keep making burner accounts to harass people because the limited invites keep the trash from misbehaving too badly. It enforces some civility that way... you act like a chud, then you get blocked and that means you can't see their content AND they can't see you screaming into the darkness unless someone is willing to throw you their valuable limited invites to enable it. Still, the people running it were questioning the strength of this block feature: because it reduces engagement and that's the metric they care about. The entire community basically went "No, we just don't want to engage with chuds at all, thank you". I would 100% prefer a smaller community if it means people feel safer on the platform.It's also still the only social media since the Tumblr purge that allows adult material to be shared and promoted, so if you are a adult content creator you stay on Twitter or hope you don't fade away when all the other sites like Instagram or Threads kick you off. Bluesky might help this, but it's still locked behind early access limits, so the audience isn't there yet.
I wish I could leave, but Twitter is the only thing that helps offset any crowdfunding bleed right now.
--PatrickMusk turned to his security guard and asked to borrow his pocket knife. Using it, he was able to lift one of the air vents in the floor, which allowed him to pry open the floor panels. He then crawled under the server floor himself, used the knife to jimmy open an electrical cabinet, pulled the server plugs, and waited to see what happened. Nothing exploded. The server was ready to be moved. “Well that doesn’t seem super hard,” he said
Amid a sea of viral footage coming out of the conflict between Israel and Hamas, misleading and recycled videos are circulating on X, formerly known as Twitter, getting hundreds of thousands of views.
The old videos, which are being passed off as from the last day, are largely being posted by verified, conservative social media personalities, many of whom have previously posted about earning ad dollars from X's monetization program.
The only silver lining is knowing they'll probably never see a dollar of that money
The 3 isn't because of l33t speak but because Model E was already taken by Ford.The story of Elon Musk is going to be an interesting one in history books. The dude was basically handed the title of visionary genius all the while his own companies had to have squads of people whose entire job was to steer Elon away from involving himself in operations because of how bad his ideas were.
Twitter was our first full look into him uncaged by his handlers at SpaceX and Tesla and he keeps showing him self to not only be a chud with the temperament of a 15 year old, but an idiot too.
For the best look at what a man child he is, just look at how his last four Tesla models spell out the word SEXY, but with the E replaced by 3 because l33t speak is so cool bro.
Elon: HOLD MY SPLIFF"How can we make this bitch crater even faster?"
"I dunno, pull a tumblr?"
Unfortunately Twitter posts are not a legally binding contract. He already once offered the UN to write up a plan to end world hunger and he would donate the money needed, so they did, and he ghosted them. When people start giving him shit about it his excuse was that the solution wasn't "permanent", like somehow just throwing a couple billion dollars at something will make it go away forever.God, I hope they do it. I want to see him lose more billions for opening his big fat mouth.
