Twitter has left the building

September 12, 2023

Social media limps along. My idea that Big Tech would swoop in & somehow fix Mastodon was, let's say, completely & totally wrong. It didn't happen.

Twitter broke into a bunch of squabbling successor states, bringing to mind the ever vaguely racist Churchill's quote that "When the war of the giants is over the war of the pygmies will begin." I thought too of the Beatles breaking up, but couldn't make that work, even Ringo doesn't deserve to be compared to "X". Then I thought of a man at war with himself, so likening it to different eras of the King Of Rock & Roll we currently have:

Combined they were Twitter. Apart they are so much less.
