    Welp, IIRC Instagram and shit does that too? I'm not on the Gram and I don't know how it works, but the few times I've gone there it's been annoying as someone without an account.

    SpaceX is where I will give Elon credit. Now I can rip into many parts about SpaceX, namely how he gets government funding yet always bitches about taxes. Namely he thinks taxes are a waste in some area while if you must I could ask "Do we need to go to Mars or feed people?".

    So since this is sorta an Elon mega thread the rocket was fine the other day.
    Democrats are the best! I will never ever question a Democrat again. I LOVE the Democrats!

    Musk has removed the state affiliated media tag from state affiliated media from russia and China. The head of RT has thanked 'brother Elon' for freeing RT.

    Yep, I don't see any indicator.

    If Musk is to the point he is this overtly helping Russia and China, that should call into question anything he gives from his SpaceX or Telsa brands as he could very well turn any secret we give him to assist in his jobs over to them as well.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    He did in fact more than decimate the company.

    Decimate means to eliminate every tenth person, not reduce to a tenth. The old romans were strange, but not that stupid.

    twitter has silently changed their Hateful Conduct policy to prohibit ‘direct attacks’ against users on the basis of their blue checkmark.

    So, we got red maga hats and now blue checkmarks to quickly identify those who are missing at least 1 chromosome, idk, I think it's a great service. Looking forward to the next way they can identify the shit stains of the world at a glance.

    I believe you mean have an extra one, as a missing chromosome is lethal - except for a condition that can only happen in females.

    at the least, it ain't posted anywhere, but they did ban the account pushing #Blocktheblue

    - - - Updated - - -

    and looks like they are pushing twitter blue for free on anyone with more than a million followers

    like Pele, who's been dead since last year

    doubt this will stop people from blocking people that bought blue since most of them are hateful shit-posters.
    "Law and Order", lots of places have had that, Russia, North Korea, Saddam's Iraq.
    Laws can be made to enforce order of cruelty and brutality.
    Equality and Justice, that is how you have peace and a society that benefits all.

    #blocktheblue is #1 trending in news, or at least it was. Elon, realizing what a disaster this is for twitter, keeps giving blue check marks to big celebs and brands who do not want it. Of course the blue check mark is effectively worthless, beyond what few "features" it offers, like the ability to edit tweets. But some elon simps still think that having a blue check mark means you've verified your identity. Literally all it means is you entered you r credit card info though.

    It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out, but it's hilarious to watch it happening in real time.

    Also, @Dril, one of the original advocates for blocking blue check marks, is being force fed blue checks by elon. dril keeps changing his display name since that gets rid of the blue check, but elom keeps giving the blue check back to him. Pretty manchild in action.

    Do you mean fine or meme-"Everything is fine" on the the date of 4-20?

    Interestingly part of the problem was that they are trying to build a simplified launch-system for Mars (without flame-diverters etc). So, a root-cause-analysis would find that Musk's dream of Mars was the underlying problem that needs to be fixed, so I wonder how long before someone steps in and says that SpaceX should focus on the here and now, not Mars.

    lol elon getting mad about all the pay pigs getting blocked. so hes giving free checkmarks to people he deems worthy and still making the peasants pay. can't imagine subsidizing the 2nd richest man in the worlds misadventures.

    Also, the humiliation of the system making it very clear who actually thinks that stupid shit has any value. Which mostly seems to be, "nobody who actually matters". He's slapping that shit on popular accounts left and right desperately trying to create a reality to conform to his fantasy where it's actually super popular and people really like it and he's very smart and handsome.

    I still can't get over his dad cashing in on the emerald mine bounty. Absolute alpha move right there, beyond zero respect for his own child. Explains a lot about the emotional fragility of the young lad with hair plugs.

    Twitter has verified the (previously banned) far-right party Britain First as an "official organisation" and is giving blue ticks to anyone "affiliated" with it

    That will amplify their tweets to non-followers


    Just admit I'm not too familiar with this party, but doing some research this seems like a far right party. Honestly they seem too much similar to our Republican Party.

    Well, this just shows as I said in my first post on this thread what Twitter will turn into. Not many disagreed but just stating the obvious.
    Democrats are the best! I will never ever question a Democrat again. I LOVE the Democrats!

    I'm more concerned with the unbanning. Unless Tiwtter gifted them a membership? The official Twitter page does not list a price for a Verified Organization. I have seen reports ranging as high as $1,000 a month. So we're between "Twitter is okay with alt-right organizations paying their way back onto Twitter for $1,000 a month" and "Twitter welcomes back alt-right organization and gives them $1,000 of free publicity a month".
