Can we just lose Twitter completely?
 
2018-07-11 02:10:37 PM  
It's a start, I guess.
 
2018-07-11 03:06:40 PM  
But HitLIARy! How many fake accounts is SHE losing????!!?!?
 
2018-07-11 03:26:38 PM  
The difference being that Obama probably doesn't give a fark, while Trump will be fuming that his 'ratings' are going down.

Bovine Diarrhea Virus: Can we just lose Twitter completely?


Oh for the love of Christ, yes. It's not jealousy, good for them (I came up with a Facebook type system, couldn't convince anyone to fund it but as we say on Earth, c'est la vie).

But Presidents giving out their drunken ramblings and insider trading through an instant message system that teenagers use to describe their fingerbanging is just embarrassing.

They're not going to make any headway against deceptive crap on Twitter until they delete Trump's account.

Did you see how his supporters wailed at the injustice, claiming they were being silenced after the last fake account purge?

I never understood why there was so much vitriol directed at Facebook
While Twitter received comparatively little criticism.
 
2018-07-11 06:12:40 PM  
I worked for an international marketing company(internet) and one day a coworker said "what is your twitter" I said"I do not tweet".  She said "but you run campaigns on most digital media".

Me "Yes."
Her"But you need an account"
Me"Are my campaigns good ?"
Her"Some of the best we have."
Me "I do not need a twitter account."

She went and told a supervisor, her called the ceo, who called me from Miami who said "What the fark is that biatch on about?" and then he me made her boss.

Unfortunately, Twitter lets him delete tweets and no one will enforce the laws about preserving presidential papers, etc.

Oh, darn. . . It looks like somebody posted that before me. Hey man, small world, huh? Are you shiatposting on Fark to fill the empty void left in your soul because the only person to ever love you was your Uncle Paul, and it left you a broken person who's unable to cope in society, too?
 
2018-07-11 06:27:20 PM  
I read on the internet that more than 2 MILLION of Hillary Clinton's Twitter followers are fake.

that's more than 2 MILLION, nobody knows what the exact number is, 2 MILLION was just a guesstimate, prolly a lot more than 2 MILLION though, I didn't actually read the article, just the headline.

so you know things are bad for Hillary Clinton's Twitter account.

The problem is not the platform, which is perfectly suitable for teenagers' gossip, snark, and attention span of some.
The problem is your President, whose mind is stuck in his early teens.

That's not why I want the Twitter feed to remain.

I want it to remain so that he doesn't start using that cell phone emergency alert system for the President, that cannot be disabled by the cell phone owner like the Amber Alert and Weather Alert can.

The move by Twitter is the latest in hard choices that the company is making

What a crock. It's such a hard decision to do a few of the things they should have been doing from the beginning if they were remotely ethical or responsible. Scumbags.

I suggest following Real Press Sec. instead. Don't give give the actual guy the satisfaction.
Besides, Real Press Sec. formats them as they are real press releases. Sort of makes them formal, if you will, and shows what they look like really coming from the Office of the President of the United States.

Twitter is not subject to the Presidential Records Act. It is a private entity and as such is entitled to shut down any Twitter account it wants to.

The twattings that the dementia patient in the White House has "written" so far are official records, but that doesn't mean Twitter couldn't kick him off today if it wanted to.

It just doesn't want to. Because Twitter, like most of the other "social media" sites, is owned by white guys who don't really have a problem with racism, sexism or homophobia.

Still, that's absolutely neat! I hope you didn't venture too far into my twitter profile, because I mostly use it for two things; social justice, and lots of furry fetish porn.
