Here be the twitter thread, the thread where we discuss the continued degradation and rot of everyone’s… favorite(???) bird themed social media platform after it became privately owned by everyone’s (least) favorite apartheid emerald failson.
The dipshit’s latest foible was this past weekend where, as best anyone can tell, he refused to pay google approximately one billion dollars owed for the continuing use of their Google Cloud service, leaving others at twitter to try and scramble to either get the fee paid in time and/or pull off as much of Twitter from there and register as possible. This resulted in constants Rate Limiting issues rendering the service practically unusable for most users through the weekend, with Musk making the excuse it was being purposefully done to combat web scraping that was supposedly degrading service. But he’s a known liar and charlatan so you can be sure that was almost assuredly complete bullshit.
Then, within the last couple of days, Musk’s stupidity and chintziness has come back to haunt him as fellow Silicon Valley Asshole, vanguard of national political destabilization and resident creepy Caesar fanboy Mark Zuckerberg and Meta launched their twitter competitor, Threads, designed and helmed by many of the former twitter workers whom Musk fired nearly one year ago. He is very mad about this, and while Threads sucks he can blow it out his ass because, again, he created this problem for himself by being a bastard and an asshole.
It’s also where we talk about national and global events of some import, because sharing is caring in our rapidly escalating hellscape and it’s better to let that shit out than fester like a tiny weevil of nihilistic desperation caged within the soul without escape.
