I’ve had a pretty good Twitter sidebar widget for a little while now. In fact, I’m fairly certain I got it after Musk took over.
I couldn’t help but notice that it looks like Twitter decided that they didn’t want to feed these types of widgets anymore and just killed it.
Of course, I have posts on Twitter. Many of them.
I went to try and upgrade to Twitter Blue and was told that I don’t post enough to be using Twitter Blue.
Therefore, my giving a fuck about Twitter days are slowly coming to an end.
As far as I’m concerned, there are no real substitutes for it. Anything Meta is involved with is always something I run away from. So, Threads is out. I don’t trust the company at all nor do I feel like contributing to their bottom line. There are plenty of idiots who use their products to keep them in business. I’m just not one of those idiots.
Great read about how badly Threads is performing here.
Mastodon is not even close. It takes way too much to get started using it for the average user which means that the user base will always be small.
I loved the old Twitter, before Elon Musk got involved with it. I think he does most things well but I never felt like Twitter was one of them.
A woman's bare breasts calms an angry sea". This is why many vessels have a figure of a woman on the bow of the ship. It was believed that a woman’s bare breasts would “shame” the stormy seas into calm. Alas, the ancient power of female nudity. pic.twitter.com/ndzyPDFqY4— عُمَرْ (@rasbeirutboy) September 3, 2018

Some things I found interesting on Twitter this morning…

I want to thank the men and women of the 42 Detective Squad, Bronx Homicide and all who worked on the murder case of Lisa Marie Velasquez. Your collective efforts led to those responsible for her murder. Two perpetrators are now in custody. #Bronx @NYPDnews @NYPDChiefofDept pic.twitter.com/LBTKQawoNW— Chief Dermot F.
