I know how we had a thread about Twitter's former CEO saying he "regretted" for his actions on both the internet and society. (Which a majority of us here agree that this mother fucker is faking it and we'd rather see his home burn down)

But just now Elon Musk, owner of Telsa and SpaceX, and largest critique of Twitter has purchased large sums worth of shares of said site and a lot of leftists are not happy about this. Personally, I have hopes now for Twitter being cleaned out and becoming a less hostile place for moderates and the apolitical.
(Keep in mind that a majority of people who got either shadow banned or outright banned off from Twitter were largely moderates and people who just did not care about politics.)


I don't have any screenshots of these losers raging. Only one at the moment. If anyone would like to contribute; post 'em!

Let the children lose it, let the children use it, let all the children boogie! I love David Bowie!

I am by no means a Trump supporter (I'm not even American) but I have no hopes that mainstream social media can be a platform for free speech when they banned him on all of the sites. Twitter is already one of the worst social media platform out there, if not the worst one, so if Elon does decide to make some changes to it you can't get much worse, so it's really only up from here.

I know, right! R3ddit is worse at this when anything that doesn't align with their primarily leftist values, be it not left enough, centrist or right can get your comment removed. I was reading this thread the other day and like 70% of the comments were deleted (the message saying it's deleted doesn't show up anymore now).

Then again, joke's on me for using those garbage sites.

The primary issue with mainstream platforms such Plebbit and Twitter is that their staff team these days are constantly intervening and playing favorites which in the case of our contemporary politics circa 2013, it's mostly Liberal leaning or largely progressive leaning folks.

As a result, a lot of people who disagree who do not care and want to their own thing wound up getting punished out of nowhere. It can be agreed that this type of behavior from Big Tech is what caused many to become disgruntled and cement the more radical ideas in their heads becoming the extremists we now see today. And while the dream of social media one day disappearing would be "great" news for everyone, unfortunately the reality is more detrimental for everyone than it is good. I believe I made a post about it on this thread in particular here in regard to what I am saying.

Also update as I'm pulling into more articles on this and checking the farms, He now owns about 73,486,938 shares of Common Stock. And is being brought on for Board of directors I am not making this up.

Twatter is not worth the money they say they do. I hope Elon can figure out a way to extract money. It's share price is hilariously over valued. What do they even produce other than sjws and propaganda.

Twitter should be paying everyone else for letting it continue to exist

Twitter delenda est. But that aside, maybe a few formerly smug hall monitor radlibs will awaken to the horror of the awesome power of a centralized corporate internet where a handful of eccentric billionaires have sole authority to decide what can and cannot be said, what gets deranked by The Algorithm, and what gets censored or labelled as misinformation. Maybe they will now see how easily this power can fall into the wrong hands.

All Elon has to do is unban @realDonaldTrump and I'll be okay with this. We're really missing out on the comedic potential of Trump back seat presidenting Biden while rationing him in the replies.

Biden is one of the internet's top punching bags along with Harris. You know this has to be wearing him down.

I don't even think that Biden will seek reelection. He'd be stupid to say yes. Who is the next top democrat.

Oh? What do you mean by this?
Inflammatory content gets most visibility. Engagement (comments/quotes) are more important than the actual quality. A well thought out post on both sites usually goes unnoticed but the most retarded takes and trolls get all the attention because people like being mad.

A big difference between an imageboard and Twitter is that on an imageboard you can at least make fun of retards without the thought police banning you, whereas Twitter's smooth brain takes on current events are usually the majority opinion and are shielded at all costs.

Depends. 4chan too has some sacred cows that will get you banned by eternally gay jannies on certain boards. For example try trolling porn threads on /tg/ for example. The mods/jannies will enter the thread to ban you but leave the thread alive. The whole drama that's been going on with /qa/ for 6 years now too.
It's less transparent and admittedly less extreme but 4chan staff plays favourites too.

We live in a very exciting time. Perhaps we'll see the fall of Twitter as we know it.

Though, I don't think Elon will ever do something drastic with Twitter. He has a habit of making hyperbolic meme goals and then going through with it in the most milquetoast way possible.

Elon buying up twitter stocks probably won't do too much in the long run for website policy. It's more like throwing red meat at a rabid dog to get it off your back, or in this case anyone who does not fall within the shitlib paradigm.

Still redmeat is redmeat and I'm enjoying eating it up I must admit.

Spot on. They're also very similar from web design perspective. Both tap into the mindset of perpetual content consumption. The furious mashing of F5 is on par with the eternal scrolling that a lot of Twitter users become enamoured to.
