If you see a verified check mark on twitter, assume it is fake and Chevrolet is not coming out with a car called the Hitler-mobile.

We’re getting into real Putin/Surkov management styles here. Oh dear, as Adam Curtis put it.

Meanwhile, the beatings continue with no improvement in morale to be seen.

VPN (Trust Zone seems to be a good service/deal, for me)

“You can now pay $8 to NOT be verified.”
Literally laughed out loud at that.

What an absolute disaster, unfolding in realtime. Reminds me of the Digg migration, and how fast that went down as everyone shifted to Reddit. Any platform is transient, and users are fickle beasts.

My favorite interaction so far:

Elon Musk on Twitter: “Twitter usage is at an all-time high lol”
Michael Welch on Twitter: “@elonmusk Well yeah dude, we’re not going to leave 5 minutes before the Hindenburg takes off.”

“Fail forward fast.”

Yup.

Obviously this isn’t a parody because at no point does she say, “This is a parody.”

Someone was describing what they called the “trust thermocline” where, basically, you can keep degrading a service and people will stick with it beyond their breaking point because of sunk costs. You can have a series of steps where things get worse, and there’s no real loss of users, but then the final straw hits and suddenly everyone’s gone. Reversing the final act (or even series of events) that drove people away won’t bring them back, either, because they’ve fundamentally lost trust in the service, which now needs to be rebuilt from scratch (only now they’re using another service and…).

I saw the current Twitter situation described as a train wreck filled with glitter and yeah, that seems right.

That would have been Ford anyway.
