    Just saying, when your biographer emphasizes how you are hopelessly addicted to being at the center of drama and you have zero empathy for anyone else...chances are you are a narcissistic sociopath.

    Elmo says subscription fees will help cull the bots.
    My cynicism is pegged. Nobody with a functioning mind will pay to be on his horrible shit show of a platform. This ought to be fun to watch.

    Threads should make a serious effort to bring over the journalists, the only reason i go to Twitter is for breaking news. Many have started accounts but dont bother posting.

    Elon "pay me to break your news here, on my site, where I make all the money (well, me and my Saudi terrorist backers)...and I should probably remind you again, that you pay me for that privilege".

    You're spot on - Threads should reduce their adoption friction and steal Elon's content makers by $incentivizing$ them.... even as a loss leader for the time being. Step on the neck.

    The arc of technology is long but it bends toward user-owned co-ops.

    Mastodon, in this case. Hopefully.

    In the meantime, nitter.net is pretty literally Twitter without Musk. Unless you follow him, I guess.

    220 pages about Elon Musk and a world obsessed with Twitter/X…..maybe people will pay.

    Wait. Is it bad because it’s low grade? Or because it’s speed?

    There's nothing "low-grade" about it, it's pure amphetamine.

    There's no reason to sully the reputation of a fine upstanding drug like ketamine just because a douchenozzle like Elon uses it.

    The Allies used amphetamine while the Nazi's preferred methamphetamine, which probably played a small part in them losing the war.

    Yeah but the Methnazis had more fun going on 7day long blitzkrieg benders.

    Just an observation: where my news articles used to often include twitter links/embedding - lately - X embedding is seldom seen, only where the X post is the main thrust of the article.

    I'm largely a mainstream news person - right smack in the middle - established, credible organizations.

    So, it appears, Elon-X is being starved and orphaned. As it should. Undeserving of legitimacy.
