twitter crash and burn

Mostly on Mastodon I hear a lot about how breathtaking it is to watch Twitter crash and burn. Historically breathtaking!

Frankly, I notice no difference. The same ones I get news and info from before are still there pointing to their same websites. Some get capriciously banned, some reinstated, but mostly the same, sightly tweaked censorship agenda, maybe.

I think a few 100K, or million, nutcases on or off makes little difference on a network that large. The ones noisily running off to other networks often ain’t that great. I’ve been on networks where the majority are nutcases, i.e. politically inept, revolting, propaganda steeped. I survived OK.

I have many other ways to get news and info: RSS, Telegram, direct e-mail subscription.
