I don’t use twitter anymore and it wouldn’t bother me if it went away.
Twitter is full of strange people. lol.
I often think it’s a place where people get into fights and waste nothing but time.
Twitter has no concept of categories or threads, and there is no cooldown to close a thread at 1000.
I think it’s one of the sites where fights are constant because of the way it works and the way it mixes up different opinions.
I do think this is partly a problem with my style, which is to not block strange people when they get involved, and to hit them back when they hit me.
With this style, twitter was really a site that only consumed my time and had nothing useful to offer.
I realized that it was a waste of time, so I decided to quit twitter.
I think twitter is a useful tool if you use it only as a promotional tool for one-sided transmission of your opinions or for following famous people.
I don’t think twitter will disappear right now because someone as rich as Elon Musk can at least bring in a replacement.
I think he probably doesn’t need his current employees.
And if he did need them, he wouldn’t be tightening up the way they are treated, which would rapidly deteriorate their compensation.
If he really needs to cut costs, he can hand out stock options.
So they can benefit when they recover their performance and go public again.
I have not seen any reports of him doing that, so I am thinking that he does not want his current employees.
And I think he wants to get attention and cash in on it by having it in the news every day.
The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.
