the entire tech industry is a mindboggling adult daycare that has only gotten more obscene as the real working world has gotten exponentially worse, thanks to decisions made inside of that vast adult daycare

Here, have something incredibly stupid to read where a Games Journalist compares the current twitter situation to the NeoGAF-Resetera schism.

It's some of the most masturbatory shit I've seen online that isn't part of a mass shooter's rambling PDF manifesto:

To be fair, there are a fair amount of devs that are on that forum, but I have a hunch that's only because D.I.E./E.S.G. initiatives implanted that sort of crowd into the industry.
/v/ (for better or worse) captures the gamer zeitgeist far better (slurs and coomer posting included.)

Can anyone convince me that this isn't the whole joke about 'buying Facebook and then deleting it' that he made a while ago, come to fruition?

well, what you wrote is probably not shit, twitter is objectively worse than most forum software from 20 years ago. Writing software this bad and making it function unironically takes some skill. I am pretty sure twitter employees would do great on those coding competitions where goal is writing bloated unreadable code that works.

from what i've heard of silicon valley it just sounds like every company would be a circlejerk of hackernews-poster types who like to talk about writing code instead of doing fucking anything
