The last post o that thread is from a year ago it seems, so by all accounts the thread is dead thankfully
Honestly trying to cling on to GG at this point is just more sad then anything.
Speaking of sad, Musk apparently went full “I demand to speak to the manager” Karen mode and tried to personally message the CEOs of several of the brands that quit advertising on Twitter, begging them to come back. This caused a domino effect which caused OTHER brands to pull their ads from Twitter in response to this
And also on the topic of ads, there are reports going around saying that Apple is thinking of removing Twitter from their app store due to all the other advertisers pulling out and Misl brining back several far-right accounts.

Meanwhile on Mastodon
As you know more and more leftists/liberals are leaving Twitter for there, and now what little moderation team they have is swamped by them reporting every post and person they don’t like, to the point they made a rather poignant tweet about it.
Hopefully Mastodon doesn’t collapse under the weight of the new users. If it doesn’t, I’m thinking that site will get pushed far to the left, leaving Twitter roughly in the middle of it and Gab until it finally croaks, and the remaining users scatter amongst the others

Over 300,000 Georgians voted early today, a new record for a runoff election.
Normally I’d be elated but high turnout in GA runoff elections usually tend to favor the GOP. After 2020, however, I don’t know if that theory still holds up.

Musk has also mused that maybe he’ll create his own phone now that he’s angry about Apple taking their 30% cut.
And I say do it. Musk making a phone that’ll randomly explode and his stans putting in their pockets 6 inches from their junk is a self-solving problem.

This is just getting ridiculous at this point. He’s trying to make himself out as a martyr fighting for free speech and against tyranny, as if Twitter was somehow the last bastion of free speech in America

Mastodon isn’t a site. It’s basically IRC; anyone can set up their own server and decide who should be allowed and how to moderate it, as well as what other servers to connect to.
No amount of users of bullshit or whatever can “take down Mastodon” because it’s not centralized or dependent on any one company or person.

@The Smiling Pony
Yeah, each server can have their own moderation rules and also decides which servers it talks to. So if you don’t like moderation rules of another server, just don’t talk to it and your users won’t see the posts from it.
For example, Gab was a Mastodon instance at one point, but everyone refused to talk to them, so Gab users could only interact with other Gab users. Eventually they gave up and no longer are a Mastodon instance.

Also LOL at referencing Timcast as a credible source. The guy literally called the planned drag brunch at Club Q before it got shot up “a groomer event.”

Ah! I didn’t realize that was where you are. It’s a beautiful place, but … yeah … the law there, and it’s interface with society (for lack of a better way of saying it) is a major player there.
One of the few places we had to “extract” an employee from before the police found them, just because we hadn’t fully complied with the local laws about ‘how things should be done.’

Warnock spent the holiday weekend attending 6 separate public events, poured several million dollars in radio and TV ads, and oversaw the single highest early day turnout of any runoff in Georgia history.
Walker, meanwhile, has just now come back on the trail having been absent since Thursday, has barely managed to spend any cash, and has been letting old commercials do the talking.
Consequently, betting odds have moved the race to heavy Dem fav.

Speaking of Biden, absolutely furious his official White House statement is to call on Congress to pass legislation to force the rail unions to accept the garbage tentative contract that is weighted in the rail companies’ favor. If all else fails I hope those workers stage a wildcat strike. Teach Brandon to come at them with “but think about the economy!”
If the Dems were serious about being the party of the working class, they’d be setting the information space to make sure the blame for any economic downturn from a strike squarely rests on the rail companies that refuse to bargain in good faith or give workers sick days. But knowing them, they won’t. Because that’d offend their megadonors.

It’s really our fault we prioritize the health of the economy over the health of the workers who build it. Workers’ rights are almost never a top election issue anymore because the average American voter probably doesn’t know what a labor union actually is beyond what Fox or other Murdoch media say about them.

While the NC gubernatorial election is two years away, GOP primary polls are showing Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson as the favorite to win the nomination. Here’s a taste of Robinson as a human being.
