Good. Light it on fire and roll it down the hill.

The stupid part is that there will be people on there trying to counter the misinformation.  Don't.  Just ignore the site entirely.  Let the cranks own it.   They'll strangle it with their craziness.

There goes all the medical companies that didn't drop their ads after the "Free Insulin" debacle.

I thought Musk was a douche for a long time but it's really surprising that he isn't just a douche but an entirely average down the middle conservative edgelord You would think his wealth would give him weird out there views but instead he's just as smart and believes exactly the same things as everyone's least favorite uncle at Thanksgiving.

At this point, I think Musk is trying to get the app removed from the iTunes Store believing that there will be blowback that somehow helps Twitter in the long run.

Drunk uncle at least learned some adult functionality.

Hairplugs is closer to the bitter weird loner who approaches every decision as a revenge plot against the kids that picked on him in junior high.

The fact that more vaccinated people die from COVID than unvaccinated is partly because 80.7% of the population in the U.S. has had at least one dose of vaccine, according to the CDC. Actuarially, that would drive higher numbers of COVID fatalities among the vaccinated.

Math, how does it work.

We thought it would be the Information Superhighway, naively assuming truth would democratize itself.
We're left with an Information Sewer - but don't forget that sewer systems are a wonder of mankind. If they're maintained. If you call a plumber when you've got too much sh*t in the pipes.
Guys like Musk are out here giving everyone free Taco Bell.

Is this the kind of misinformation where people are encouraged to drink bleach?  Or the misinformation of linking to a CNN article portraying China's mask-and-lockdown policy  in a negative light?

/Stay home, mask up...for just two weeks, and we'll be safe!  This time, for  sure!

That's when you hope there's enough milk in the house to fill a bowl she can sit in.

Also, in the early days of Covid, you had Health Departments in states like Florida deliberately listing causes of death as anything but Covid.

That seems like a deeply credible organization that in no way pushes a Russian propaganda.


I gave up digging after reading about the parent company of the parent company being a private equity firm. I saw no serious or actual links to any reputable sources .
All it seems to be is a media push outfit.

At some point Apple and Google will drop Twitter from their stores. It'll be to much liability to keep it.

Please. Continue. Wipe yourselves out.

What I really want to say would get this post deleted and my account perma-banned.

Almost three years into this and people haven't chosen vax or anti-vax sides yet?

To be fair, who's still around to do the actual blocking?

2.) Make the platform popular with people that are easy to exploit
3.) profit

Meh.

The hairplugs grew out nicely and he looks signficantly better with them.

There's no shortage of real stuff to criticize the man with.

I am as of this writing, on my 7th day with Covid. I did everything right. I worked from home for over a year, im vaxxed, boosted, the whole deal. When I first got it everyone said wecolme to club & assured me id be fine in a couple days. Yet hear I am, confined to bed, feverish AF, can barely eat, sleep. Cant breath. Havent been admitted to the hospital cause the lowest my o2 has been is 91%.  But my doctor is watching me closely. I am in a state of living hell. I truly hope anyone who doesnt take this seriously, spreads misinformation or calls it a hoax.. dies. Just die already. Thats were im at right now. If I survive this im going to make it mission to shout down, scream, and embarrass any anti-vaxxers or hoaxers.

That's the part that confuses me.

What's wrong with using the web page? Heck, you can even put a link to the web page on your screen just as if it was a "real" app. You can set it to throw notifications as well.

Do most people not know this?
 
2022-11-29 8:38:27 PM  
The vaxxed are out, getting around, dying in the typical ways instead of in the ICU.

Technically, the article might be true, but certainly not because the vaxxed are dying of  COVID.

"Hmmm. Hit by a car, got thrown through a plate glass window, landed on a pile of antique spears, and bled to death. I also see he was vaxxed, so I'm listing the cause of death as COVID! "

It's kind of like removing all the speed limits because there's not enough cops to write the tickets.


/ they serve to enforce safe driving habits, too
 
2022-11-29 8:43:54 PM  
I support vaccinations so I can more randomize when and what strain of COVID I get.
