I have never wanted to use Twitter. Trump loves using that ugly platform. So do most of the Fake News staff. They like it because it is dumbed down conversations which is right in the sweet spot for our rulers. I, on the other hand, don’t like it. Now, Twitter’s growth is near zero and more people leave it behind despite Trump posting online with the stupid tool.
Watching yet another flash in the pan online scheme go belly up is fun.
Shares of Twitter dropped 12% in New York, partly on a low earnings forecast. For the first quarter, Twitter projected adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization between $75 million and $95 million—far less than the roughly $182 million analysts expected. Twitter, which has posted net losses every quarter since going public, reiterated its goal of moving toward profitability in 2017…
Revenue in the fourth quarter, which coincided with the election, a time of intense political debate and conversation, rose just 1% to $717.2 million.
I despise Twitter. The idea is, Twitter turns people, even Trump, into morons because it is a stupid platform. One cheeky comment to the article is this, ‘Maybe Trump will nationalize Twitter.’ Heh.
The problem with Twitter is, they can’t really make money (advertisements) off of it. Many an online platform has started up, shot to the heavens and the just as fast, fades and dies. They all have the same problem: they can’t charge people lots of money to use or someone will come along with a ‘free’ system.
It is worse: all systems end up with people demanding they censor everyone and everything and scream and yell especially fake liberals and Fake Media people pick up the demands to cut out others and then all the rest storm out in a rage when their favorite people like say, Milo, are banned for no good reasons.
This kills a site and that is all Twitter is: a place to yap and fight. Fighting is fun and if people hate fighting, all they have to do is not enter the Ring. I don’t do Twitter because it bores me. It seems to not bore leftists who think they own the place so give it to them! BTW, the chatter I get from very young people who don’t like the Nanny, nanny, stop that gang, aka, ‘leftists’ are forming a new system which is still beta but will be fully functional soon.
Conservatives abandon Twitter.
I’ve started seeing people say that minor accounts were being banned, but it was hard to know why they were being banned and if it had anything to do with the fascist committee protecting everyone from getting their feelings hurt. Apparently, Breitbart’s @Nero lost his “verified” blue checkmark status over a joke he was tweeting that he was working for Buzzfeed.
Then the big one hit: Stacy McCain is an anti-feminist blogger, and he often critiques them on Twitter – it looks like that just isn’t allowed anymore.
Of course, the scumbags on the left are praising the action, because if there’s anything they can’t deal with it’s conservatives with a chance to debate and speak freely…We know that Facebook is already shutting down people for criticizing Syrian refugees, and conservatives have often believed they get the short end of the stick there too. And Tumblr is a cesspool of drooling, rabid LGBT and transexual advocates. I guess it’s back to the only refuge from conservative free speech: email chainmails and tincans linked together through strings.
Since last year, many people have been banned without warning. This means all the followers of famous people who are not PC enough for Twitter’s owners are leaving, too. Duh. Here is news from 2 days ago: Twitter takes MORE steps to curb ‘hate speech’!
The company said Tuesday that it has begun identifying people who have been banned for abusive behavior and it will stop them from creating new accounts. In July, the company banned conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, an editor of the right-wing site Breitbart News, for “participating in or inciting targeted abuse of individuals.” In November, it suspended a number of other accounts linked to “alt-right” or white nationalist activists, citing policies that forbid violent threats, hate speech or harassment.
They should hire Merkel and the other commies in the EU to run Twitter after the people in Europe kick them out of office. Censorship of this sort is totally rad if you are a communist. Go for it! HAHAHA.
But the company had been under fire for failing, for nearly a decade since its founding, to address hate and abuse on the site. Balancing its reputation as a free speech haven has at times come into conflict with efforts to protect users. In an internal memo in 2015, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo told employees, “We suck at dealing with abuse and trolls on the platform and we’ve sucked at it for years.”
So why are all the leftists allowed to be obnoxious, use every possible cuss work, do hate speeches, even call for the assassination of elected leaders? Eh? Seriously, something is weird and wrong in leftist brains at this point. Oxygen starvation in the Big Cities?
The company has taken a number of steps since then to improve the way it responds to the problem, for example updating its rules against threats and abuse last year and suspending thousands of accounts suspected of links to terror.
In additional steps announced Tuesday, Twitter also said that it is creating a “safe search” feature that removes tweets with potentially sensitive content and tweets from blocked and muted accounts from search results. The tweets will still exist on Twitter if people look for them, but won’t appear in general search results.
So, they plan to copy Google which has totally screwed up search engine results. Years ago, I got lots of information and perfect results, today, it is garbage, nearly unusable at this point.
Twitter is also singling out and collapsing potentially abusive and “low-quality” replies so only the most relevant conversations surface. These replies will also be accessible to those who seek them out, but Twitter is making them less visible.
Yes, hide opinions the rulers of Twitter dislike and that is…CENSORSHIP. Period. And I hope Twitter dies. I don’t use it. Reporters use it all the time now, being lazy and unable to craft sentences longer than 10 words, anyways, not the long, running around the world sentences I love to write because I am a speed typist, learned this skill many years ago but never was a secretary, it was so I could write my papers in college easily…HAHAHAHA.
Twitter says their way of burying any right wing tweets will begin soon, it hasn’t happened yet. But it will…and I get to say, ‘Die! Twitter! Out, damn spot.’
One last stupid thing here: Twitter’s home page has an update on ‘safety’ talking about this very clever method of censoring users and on the same page they have an example for us:
Yes, Twitter’s own account has a charming conversation with @fart. ‘You wild.’ What the hell? Why isn’t @fart banned for being a dirty creep? Eh? Hello, Twitter, you stupid twits. Mirrors! Or are you all vampires and can’t look at your own ugly little warty mugs?
