Nah, he’s a giant nut-sack.
so I don’t have high hopes that Threads will provide a less hateful alternative to Musk’s vision of what Twitter should be.
Yes. It’s the rotten apple in the barrel problem, except most of the barrel is rotten and only a few doomed good apples are getting put into it.
I like the lack of celebrities on Mastodon, but to my surprise, I find I actually depend on Twitter’s discovery functions to make suggestions of posts that might interest me. I don’t want too much of that, but I want some of it.
yippee… 100 MM on threads. How many of those 100MM were already on Intsta/FB? Did Meta really drive any new users to their “garden”?
Even more of a mystery why there are fewer viewers. Oh right, yeah, they did that deliberately. Must be
5D 7D 12D 25D chess, man.
Every time Musk does something obviously, completely, utterly stupid, it’s actually him adding another dimension to the chess he’s playing, don’t you know. It’s so incomprehensible to us mortals, he’s now in “mysterious ways” territory.
Looks more like Izzard playing a character to me.
Being a jerk helps you through the door of the corner office.
Once there, the echo chamber of bootlicking sycophants amplifies your inner-jerk tendencies.
Some arrive fully developed though.
Does it matter as long as they are taking them away from Twitter?
Never take on investors with bone saws. The downside risk is too extreme.
I’ve been around so long that the famously unpleasant Steve Jobs seems entirely normal when compared to the new generation of techbros.
As the honey dippers say - it’s not just cream that rises to the top.
I’m seeing Steve Buschemi
Thank you @jlw for using a screenshot instead of the (once?)-typical embedded tweet. Especially since
every embedded tweet would have called back to Twitter, inflating the site’s supposed numbers.
Looks like a shopping list for musk to add to the twitter data “required”
I dunno techbro CEO/billionaire: you don’t get thete without being a dick. There is no victimless billionaire and every one of them was a dick all the way up. If you are in that barrel you are the putrid stinking remains of a human being.
Threads is now available for Instagram! Would you like to try it now?
Was it just the ease of logging in via an existing Instagram account?
Yes. That’s it. That’s the gimmick.
And as noted, people are already bouncing because Threads appears to be more of a feed for celebrities and brands, not your friends and family.
I am unsurprised that twitter continues to dwindle, their self-ddos was the latest bit of embarrassing engineering.
But I hold no joy for the further centralization into the meta ecosystem. They have too much data already.
I’m looking forward to the Kleenex box shoes years!
