Oof.  Twitter may still rely on ad revenue in the future, but it's clearly going to be of the 'buy Gold!' variety that turns up on most conservative broadcast platforms.

Who's surprised? This was his plan all along.

I'm only curious about how fast a Twitter alternative is launched. Elon Musk is the biggest troll and many are losing patience for his nonsense.

It does seem to be that there is a collective move to a particular platform.
Iím not sure how these things actually happen.

When Covid hit, I had been using WebEx for conference calls, yet it was
Zoom, something I had not heard of prior to then, that took advantage.
Everyone started to talk about it & Zoom became the one that got the verb.



I wonder why that was.

WebEx positioned itself for businesses and didnít have a user-friendly free setup. Skype hadnít innovated in a decade. Zoom had the latest features and was easy to sign up for. 

Some people are advocating for Mastodon as a replacement for Twitter, but I think a lot of the users will struggle with the decentralized, multiple instances. Iíve jumped on the waitlist for Post.news, even though Iíve never liked Twitter. Only reason I was on it was to get notifications for drops of limited items.

Master don is the one the collective in the UK seem to be talking about, but
yes, the decentralised nature seems to be its biggest negative

What I should have asked is... which platform will dethrone Twitter like FB dethroned MySpace years ago.

Oral arguments did not go well for Trump on Tuesday. The challenge to equitable jurisdiction seems to be going in favour of DoJ. During the proceeding the court asked the DoJ lawyer if the the order overturning Judge Cannonís decision should be written to vacate the injunction or if it should reverse and remand with instructions. Still looking good for the Special Master process to be gone before the new year.

Meanwhile.... 

I don't know if I should laugh uncontrollably or do a facepalm because this is even possible.

One of the worst things about the past six years is the realization that
the absolute worst and most obnoxious people I know are but a game
show hosting gig away from the presidency.
