It's like shouting in an empty room now, ain't it farkers?

Don't worry, nobody was listening to you anyway.

I guess they can forgo all the fake ad impressions those fake accounts generated now that they've had a profitable quarter.

Too bad all the horses bolted before they shut the barn door, though.

Great. Now I have to spend more time on here.

Working a midnight shift and having a slow night. Twitter is giving me a shameful amount of entertainment right now watching the right wing go (?) bat shiat crazy with consoiracy theories and cries of discrimination and liberal bias because they lost followers.

And they are SERIOUS! There are follow-back threads to get their numbers back up, threads with wildly insane conspiracy theories and people genuinely tweetraging.

I don't know why it's happening, but a few people said Twitter was purging bots and fake accounts, which lead to all-caps screaming that they are not bots, missing the point that it was their followers.

I wonder what it's like to be that stupid and paranoid.

huh...so that's why the trumpers have been having twitter imploding melt downs lately.

Better late than never, i guess.

It may be worth noting how many liberal accounts also lost followers.  There's going to be some.  The goal of the russian trolls isn't only in propping up the Trump regime, it's to foment division and infighting, to weaken the country and to distract from their activities, and they're almost certainly going to play both sides as hard as they can.

Just saying.

Quite probably, but i'm not seeing anything about liberals on twitter having spectacular meltdowns over this whole thing. Mind you, i avoid twitter like the plague, so that might account for it.

How long before a certain one pump Trump chump shows up complaining either that his Twitter account got banned, or that he lost thousands of followers?

I've scrolled through many, many posts and it's exclusively MAGA idiots complaining about losing followers - and often thousands of followers.

Thousands.. I'm not on Twitter, but I'd be suspicious of that many.  I have less than 100 Facebook friends, and only about a half dozen of those respond to anything I say or post, most of the time.

Perhaps the liberal ones are smart enough to not complain about it, so they don't look as dumb as the conservatives?

It's all right, folks. QAnon is on top of this and Twitter's CEO is running scared.

It's hard to say liberals are the real aggressors without a few good examples of death threats or personal harm in each thread.

The stupid is why it's so scary. They live entirely in a fantasy world where the unpopularity of a belief is proof of its correctness, where verifiable facts are suspicious and public consensus is a conspiracy.

Now that they're reeling, it's time to show them the compassion and kindness that makes us better than them.
We need to help them. We must aid them.

Crooked Hilary is censoring good people so she doesn't have to be reminded that I won!  Sad!

I guess conservative whackjobs who just lost their free megaphones will have to go back to sending whackjob conspiracy theories via fax machine now, like the good old days.

Not saying libs are aggressors at all.  Russian trolls are.

I think, between this going on, and Mueller... next couple of months are gonna be interesting.

F*ck Twitter, even the name of the company is stupid. 140 characters, 280 characters, who cares? Tweeting? My President is "Tweeting"?
I hope Twitter catches fire and burns down. Tweet this, EABODs.

Trump will have a total meltdown now he's lost half of his 'followers'

So....anyone got the numbers on Trump's followers before & after the lockout?  Curious how much his "popularity" dropped.

I used to keep a fax on in my home office for my side work and a buddy of mine put my number out to some of those assholes. My thermal paper bill skyrocketed. farkers.

Dude there's way more to Twitter than moronic political trolls. There's some really smart funny people on there just writing really entertaining clever stuff.
