This shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise given the amount of posting I have been doing over the past few years but this will be the last blog post for Cynical-C. It has been an amazing run but I have really just lost the passion for it. I am going to take the site off of my webhosting plan since the costs have been rising as of late.
I want to thank everybody who has commented and participated over the years. You helped this site become a community and I will miss you all.
Twitter said it will no longer enforce its longstanding Covid misinformation policy, yet another sign of how Elon Musk plans to transform the social media company he bought a month ago https://t.co/bYl1Ua1Hte
I’m deleting my twitter account within the next day or two. It won’t be much of a loss for Musk. My twitter account basically only reposted anything that gets posted to this blog. I did use it to keep in touch with some friends though and also use it to follow several on Twitter. But, after seeing how Musk has been treating the employees of Twitter, and witnessing how he is not only choosing to run the company, but use it as his own personal 4chan, I have had enough and choose to just get rid of my account. Having a raging impulsive narcissist run the country for four years has soured me on these privileged attention-at-all-cost seekers. And I really don’t want to play in his sandbox any more.
An important detail here: If you already have a blue checkmark, Twitter is currently planning to remove it from your profile after 90 days if you don’t subscribe to the more expensive Blue subscription after it launches.
