    It's funny because x.com actually exists but redirects to twitter.com.

    x.com should have been snapped up bx X-Com.

    Elom's commitment to Freeze Peach is so unshakeable and strongly held that he got triggered by criticism from a user and had the user banned despite not breaking any Twitter rules.

    Just a reminder that Elom is a piece of shit, dishonest person whose own father views him as a disappointment (while fucking his step sister) and whose own daughter disowned him.

    Have we yet to decide what the new word is for "tweet" and "tweeting"? I'd imagine we can't really call it that anymore.

    I feel Xcrement has a nice ring to it. Memorable, and people know what they are in for.

    Didn't Musk say it was a Xeet or Xweet?

    I can see Musk proudly announcing Xcrete before realizing what he had done.

    Right now, the button just says "post."

    It keeps them being able to spew hate and abuse in responses and everyone else needs to see it.

    There's got to be a way to both not see someone's tweets, and block them from replying to your tweets. Abuse, doxxing, and all the rest are less reliably and quickly handled by support and algorithms.

    Nobody thought that.

    Elon Musk Suggests Block Button May Be Next Feature on the Chopping Block at X

    Elon actually posted this on his Twitter. The only source was Hollywood Reporter but seems legit.

    So the only good think left on Twitter is going away. I'm sure disguised as free speech but of course its cause his Blue marks are being blocked left and right. Oh and Advertisers.

    Anecdotally, the sorta thing I like about blue checks getting first in replies is I could have blocked them. As I never did before I would actually see these accounts as blocked in other posts. Showing how much these troll, bot accounts are just spam. As far as advertisers, the spam has become much worse and I personally block all ads.

    These two factors pay Elon's bills so he has to give them access.

    Elon is a Fraud and an Idiot but so long as the check cleared and it has, he can do what he likes to Twitter. It's a stupid idea, but I'll enjoy Threads anyway.

    Musk’s decision to eliminate the block feature is in direct violation of App Store guidelines & will lead to X’s removal from the App Store, if implemented

    I predict Elon isn’t aware of this & will backtrack — saying he was “trolling” or “joking” — and his followers will buy it

    Err, now not sure of this link as a source and obviously I'm not going to read App Store guidelines. But if true, I laugh once more at Elon just blurting shit w/o no due diligence.

    I can see that being a actual rule and fucken lol for him not knowing it.

    I use my twitter account to keep track of gaming related stuff mainly. If he removes the ability to block people I'm just going to be done and delete my account.

    I'm gonna laugh if it gets removed from the app store over this. One of the absolute dumbest people alive.

    Eh...can probably get around that by charging for the feature.

    I do enjoy that it's still "twitter.com" though. I see the rebranding is going swimmingly...with everyone still calling it "twitter" anyway.
