THREADS Signs Up Over 70 Million New Users In Days.

THREADS Signs Up Over 70 Million New Users In 2 Days.

That number probably would have been tripled if it wasn’t only app based with no website.

“Meta Platforms Inc.’s new social media app Threads has garnered 70 million users in just two days after its launch, a sign of enthusiasm that Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg said was “way beyond our expectations.”

Threads launched on Wednesday as an alternative to Elon Musk’s Twitter, which had 237.8 million users as of July 2022, but has also been beset by controversy.

On Threads, which closely resembles Twitter’s look, people can post text and links and reply to or repost messages from others. The app will let users port over their existing follower lists and account names from Instagram.”

Twitter, which had 237.8 million users as of July 2022. If this rate keeps up THREADS should surpass it early next week.

Threads is currently ranked No. 1 among free apps on Apple Inc’s App Store in the US.

UFC Says PPV Bout Between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg Would Cost $100.

UFC Says PPV Bout Between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg Would Cost $100.

Money well spent in my opinion.

‘While a standard UFC pay-per-view costs $80, UFC president Dana White said he would charge $100 for the Musk-Zuckerberg bout. The previous biggest pay-per-view ever was Conor McGrergor-Floyd Mayweather in 2017,  White said, which brought in more than $600 million in revenue.

The two executives, who have a history of bad blood, likely aren’t looking to add to their net worth from the fight, however. Instead, he suggested they would each battle for a charitable organization of their choice.

“I don’t think either one of them needs the money,” White said. “These guys would raise hundreds of millions of dollars for charity,” he added.’


Mark Zuckerberg, 39, has recently been winning jiu jitsu matches.

Elon Musk, 51, has recently been seen imitating Shamu on water slides.

Place your bets.

Oh and Elon. 187?. What kilos?

Gurl, please. 187 pounds maybe when you were 20. But that’s long gone.

Like your empathy and humanity.

TWITTER - “Cisgender” Is Now Considered A Slur And Can Get You Banned.

TWITTER – “Cisgender” Is Now Considered A Slur And Can Get You Banned.

Elon Musk on Tuesday announced that the words “cis” and “cisgender” are now “considered slurs” on Twitter that can result in having you banned from the social media platform.

Elon Musk, the billionaire owner of Twitter, has amped up his anti-transgender campaign and has rejected the use of specific terms on the platform that are important to transgender people.

Musk has a tendency to make announcements about Twitter’s policies based on personal whims, but it’s unclear whether this is an official policy that will be upheld. “Cisgender” as a term is an important part of many transgender peoples’ vocabulary because it refers to people who identify with the sex they were assigned at birth.

Musk has a transgender daughter who legally filed to change her name in 2022 because of her “gender identity” and “the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape, or form.”

Musk later commented on a Twitter poll asking if “cis” is a slur in which 78 percent of respondents voted “yes.” “People overwhelmingly reject this obvious slur that bigots are trying to impose,” Musk tweeted..

TWITTER: Social Media Site Now Only Valued At 1/3 Of What Elon Musk Paid For It.

TWITTER: Social Media Site Now Only Valued At 1/3 Of What Elon Musk Paid For It.

Seems that hate speech doesn’t pay. Eh, Elon?

According to Fidelity: Twitter is now worth just one-third of what Elon Musk paid for the social-media platform.

Twitter is now worth just one-third of what Elon Musk paid for the social-media platform, according to Fidelity, which recently marked down the value of its equity stake in the company.

Musk has acknowledged he overpaid for Twitter, which he bought for $44 billion, including $33.5 billion in equity. More recently, he said Twitter is worth less than half what he paid for it.

It’s unclear how Fidelity arrived at its new, lower valuation or whether it receives any non-public information from the company. Fidelity first reduced the value of its Twitter stake in November, to 44% of the purchase price. That was followed by further markdowns in December and February.


Twitter in reality was never “worth” $40 billion. Elon Musk grossly overpaid for a company that had no long-term strategy for making a profit except to allow hate speech and the expectation of millions of former right-wing hate mongers to return.

SOME came back. But only enough to make the social media site a dangerous place and forced more to leave than return.

USC STUDY: Hate Speech On Twitter DOUBLES Since Elon Musk Takeover.

Elon Musk Drops Twitter Policy Ban On Trans Misgendering

Via The AP:

Twitter has quietly removed a policy against the “targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals,” raising concerns that the Elon Musk-owned platform is becoming less safe for marginalized groups.
Twitter enacted the policy against deadnaming, or using a transgender person’s name before they transitioned, as well as purposefully using the wrong gender for someone as a form of harassment, in 2018.
On Monday, Twitter also said it will only put warning labels on some tweets that are “potentially” in violation of its rules against hateful conduct. Previously, the tweets were removed.

Twitter is rapidly becoming the online equivalent of Florida.

Since the Elon Musk take over of Twitter’s the social media giant now has a work force of less than 2,000, down from 7,500 which also might have something to do with it.

PBS Joins NPR Leaving Twitter After Being Labeled "Government Funded Media" by Elon Musk

PBS Joins NPR Leaving Twitter After Being Labeled “Government Funded Media” by Elon Musk

A reminder to the world and Elon Musk: We survived without twitter before, we can do it again

Via Axios:

PBS has not tweeted from its main Twitter handle since April 8, following Elon Musk’s decision to label the outlet “government-funded news.” PBS joins NPR, another major editorially independent outlet that receives some government funding, in halting its Twitter activity in light of the new label. Twitter added a “government-funded” label to PBS’ main Twitter account last weekend, a spokesperson confirmed. “We did stop tweeting at that point as soon as we discovered it,” a PBS spokesperson confirmed. “We have no plans to resume tweeting.”

Now that PBS has stated they won’t tweet, Elon Musk and Marjorie Taylor Greene has called for a halt to all their Federal funding.

Which begs to call into question why Elon Musk’s companies have received billions in government subsidies over the last two decades?

That’s the Nazi Republican way for you.

Today in the “Elon Musk Twitter Files”

Hey turnabout is fair play. And as you can see these tweets just prove what we all know. Elon Mush is a sophomoric, greedy, lying, anti-lgbt idiot who probably has a borderline personality and should be heavily medicated.

TITTER indeed.

TWITTER Accused of Limiting Views of LGBT Tweets and Targeting Accounts.

TWITTER Accused of Limiting Views of LGBT Tweets and Targeting Accounts.

Twitter has an “Adult Behavior” TOS rule. Who knew?

The UK-based research collective has claimed that words such as “trans,” “gay,” “lesbian,” “queer,” and “bisexual” are being de-boosted on the social media website.

While the tweets containing these words themselves are not banned on the platform, the company’s approach to selecting which tweets can appear with a preview pane in direct messages might be a new content moderation approach according to the  Trans Safety Network .

Musk, who has never been a supporter of the LGBT community and his company have also been accused of targeting accounts with LGBT accounts over anything that can be slightly “abusive’ or “offensive” using its new, never announced and selectively enforced “Adult Nudity” rule. Many gay-centric porn sites have recently disappeared or been banned outright while STR8 porn flourishes.

As for targeting for imagined slights. Those against the GOP are immediately banned but But Twitter has no problem with MAGA and the GOP expounding hate and in some cases violence against our community. (Libs of TikTok anyone?)

But I received a 7 day ban for the following tweet for “Abusive Behavior”:

A 7 day ban for a turn of of phrase. All because it was against Jim Jordan.

In the 12 hours after Elon Musk closed the deal, instances of homophobic and racial slurs on the platform also shot up by 500%, according to an organization that studies social media activity.

Combating homophobia and abuse was a problem when Jack Dorsey owned the site. Since Musk’s takeover homophobia thrives and in some cases is encouraged and there is definitive targeting by the platform itself against LGBT users.

It’s time for Twitter and Elon Musk to go.

But since they won’t maybe we should.

‘Trans Day of Vengeance’ Protest in DC Canceled Over ‘Credible threat to life’.

TWITTER Removes All Tweets About “Trans Day of Vengeance” Protest in DC

Twitter says it has removed 5000 tweets showing a poster promoting a “Trans Day of Vengeance” protest in support of transgender rights in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

“We do not support tweets that incite violence irrespective of who posts them. “Vengeance” does not imply peaceful protest. Organizing or support for peaceful protests is ok,” Irwin wrote in the tweet.

Twitter used automated processes to do it quickly at a large scale, without considering what context the tweets were shared in. Because of this, both tweets that were critical of and those that supported the protests were removed. This angered not only trans activist and supporters but also angered many conservative Twitter users who said the rules were unfairly applied to them because they were posting the image of the protest flyer to speak out against it.

Many of the tweets Twitter removed were from conservative users sharing an image of the flyer in an attempt to connect the planned protests with the recent school shooting in Nashville, Tennessee. 

One of those “conservatives” Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account was restricted. for seven days after she repeatedly posted an image of a poster about a rally called “Trans Day of Vengeance. Greene initially deleted her tweet and then posted it again voicing frustration about the action from Twitter — along with sharing the poster again, she called on the Department of Justice to investigate. Twitter again deleted the tweet — prompting yet another tweet and repost from Greene. “The people need to know about the threats they face from Antifa & trans-terrorism!!!” Greene said.

On its website, the group organizing Saturday’s protest said it does not condone violence. In a statement posted on the site, the Trans Radical Activist Network and other organizers also strongly rejected any connection between the school shooting in Nashville and Saturday’s protest, which organizers said was planned before the shooting took place.

“Vengeance means fighting back with vehemence,” the protest’s organizers wrote on their website. “We are fighting against false narratives, criminalization, and eradication of our existence.”

While I have never been opposed to a good protest I am adverse to a bad planned one. Promoting this protest as a “Day of Vengeance” in this current political climate just dares the other side to show up and fight.

What was the trans community thinking? Do they ever think and plan or only lash out and go off half cocked?

Whatever the reason trans-activist need to pull their shit together. Get some leaders, start some trans organizations, and for Goddesses sake. Get a PR person already. At this point it could only help.

Please be peaceful and aware of those around you if you join the protest on Saturday.

Keep safe.

Want To See Just How Bad TWITTER Has Gotten For LGBT’s?

Posted by Stew Peters @realstewpeters an extreme  far-right online “personality” and bounty hunter.] He is known for promoting COVID-19 misinformation and conspiracy theories.

Peters is a total extremist propaganda goon. Both of these dangerous tweets have been reported THOUSANDS of times and Elon Musk and Twitter has not removed them.

THIS is how bad and dangerous Twitter has gotten.

PLEASE be careful when using TWITTER. These people are insane and unstable.
