twitter over? doomed?

i tried to make a new twitter just now. nothing serious;
just a joke. it wants email, ok, i make a bullshit email. it
wants captcha, ok, i dentify some croswalks and street signs
for google's AI training data (aka RECPATCHA). it wants a
phone number, ok, i give them a bullshit google voice
number

but then, every time it rings, i only get the last 2-3
digits of a 6+ digit verification code. obviously, getting
"...039" will not cover the check when ... is another three
random digits.

i am forced to conclude it is no longer possible to register
a twitter account without surrendering your actual phone
number, or going to significant lengths -- like getting a
burner phone.

it's sad. twitter was fun, back in the day. make a bullshit
account; post crap. have a laugh. now it is invasive data
rape, like it wants to be facebook but totally missed the
boat

Twitter is facebook. Coke is pepsi. Home Depot
is Lowes. It's all "the technocracy" (computerized
oligopoly) Hmm, I wonder why there is always a Lowes 1 block
away from a home depot and each accepts eachother's coupons.
Just start shooting in all directions; it's self defense at
this point.

i was being overdramatic. i think you're a few orders of
magnitude above overdramatic. while i respect this, i
struggle to find a surface of engagement

anyways, back in, like, 2010 you could make a stupid joke
twitter and a separate youtube for videos of your dog and
this was what made these sites fun -- just create your own
little bubble, have a goof, get on with life.

the vibe is so incredibly different, now. youtube and
twitter are over-run but alt-right trash and tweenage
influencers. google's admongering is a perfect match for
shit like pizzagate -- "oh, yeah, we have to verify
everyone's identity now."

and that ruins it for me. it's not that i have much to hide,
i just don't really want to sign up with my real name on
twitter and engage a tide of angry incel man-children

honestly, the idea of giving my personal phone number to
twitter is insane. they'd sell it straight away, or lose it
in a hack.

Yeah, twitter sucks now. Its useless to invest any time in
it, because sooner or later youll get banned anyway. There
are also too many retards on there, who are unable to hold a
serious conversation. I gave up talking to people on there,
and i am amazed how well our democracy still works, with so
many close minded people. I however would like to follow a
few accounts, and maybe this would be possible with a normal
news reader?

i have to say, i've actually never been worried about that.
while making a new twitter is effectively now a bullshit
marathon, i do not fear the banhammer over there. youtube,
soundclot -- running pop trax through industrial dub
mechanics, i've been flagged for copyright numerous times
(but not always).

honestly, i don't see you get banned by twitter except a)
posting flagrantly against TOS shit like threats or porn b)
trolling people to the point where you get flagged a bunch.
there are even still plenty of porn twitter accounts,
despite the fracas about tumblr banning porn

i honestly hope your view comes from b)

There are also too many retards on there

yes

who are unable to hold a serious conversation.

no. twitter was never about conversation. with 140
characters, you're trading quips and one-liners. people
making serious point laboriously label their tweets 1/9, 2/9
to indicate that they're actually writing something... and,
universally, it's a jumbled mess, with other peoples' tweets
in between; people missing the first 4/10. it is apt that
twitter has a bird-theme going on, because birds just yell
in short bursts to declare turf or warn about upcoming
threats

I gave up talking to people on there,
i'll drop in for an hour or two on a saturday and via
carefully, brutally unfollowing anyone that's crap, i
generally have a decent time. but not so good i do it any
more than once every week or three

i am amazed how well our democracy still works, with so
many close minded people.


the US constitution is, frankly, a brilliant piece of
engineering. so much paranoia built in -- safeguards,
checks. if it weren't so solid, trump would have come along
a hundred years ago.

I however would like to follow a few accounts, and maybe
this would be possible with a normal news reader?

i hate twitter's web site so much. i don't like apps. if
there is an alternate method -- i, too, would be interested.

I don't know why i always get banned. I answer a lot of
people, sometimes i get an answer, sometimes not. Sometimes
people block me after one tweet. Twitter also never tells me
why they banned me. I am probably triggering some kind of
algorithm, no way there are mods who are actually reading
all the stuff i post.
I also try to refrain from threats of violence or insults.
This didn't help one bit.
Fuck twitter.

i actually don't think anyone has ever banned me. people
would post, like "of no power tool, nothing is more american
than the leaf blower -- a loud piece of shit that blows crap
everywhere" and i would like the tweet and i would post shit
like "face inducers" and "heisenberg kickback in the
compensation compensators" and sometimes people would like
it too

still getting fucking spam emails from twitter like "hey,

number before i can unsubscribe from the spam. twitter inc.
likely to face serious challenges in 2020 due to being
unfun, information-sucking arseholes

I've never even used twitter. It was too obvious that they
were hijacking the internet when I first heard of this
stupid shit where you can post limited characters. I mean
xltronic has 2048 limited characters, only I think it's not
even accurate so its probably like 2030 or something. But
that's a lot more than twitter. Sounds like they want your
characters limited as a nice chunk format to feed the deep
learning algorithms programmed with tax dollars to enslave
everyone. How should all of these CEOs be legally killed as
self defense of their crimes against humanity? Like the
twitter ceo should be put in a big inescapable tupperware
bin below a tree full of blue birds so they shit all over
him. The geico ceo should be smothered with a blanket
decorated with those politically correct soulless gecko
characters etc.

4*50*10 + 48 = 2048. I guess it is 2048.

twitter down during white house media summit. if
that was deliberate, it was a very clever counter-troll.

enjoy the silence:

Twitter has been weaponized. It's anger and depression
and the worst comment section of the worst site come to
life. A beast that breaths in bigotry and hate and coughs it
out onto unsuspecting humans. A monster.

A horrible, soul-crushing monster that I can't stop staring
at. I refresh my timeline tens maybe hundreds of times a
day. I'm looking for a glimmer of joy. I see it here and
there but it's fading and here I am feeding it with my inane
observations hoping that I get a few hearts.

I'm trying to be clever in a sea of despair. I know it's a
losing game but I won't stop.


yeah, that's about why i stopped. i still log in, here and
there, when i have something inane to tweet, and sometimes
i'll stick around and reply to people i used to reply to
years ago (those of them who are still there) but i've
utterly pulled the plug on anything other than shit like
this
