A couple of hundred karens left for mastadon in the last week and 1.6 million new users signed up.  :rofl:

Interesting comment by Musk about twitter and youtube. I wonder if twitter might turn into a new youtube for people like demonetized youtube gun guys. I recently learned through personal experience that youtube is actually one of, if not the, biggest stealth censors of comments in the whole wide world.

I don't know if twitter will replace youtube or other outfits until they get more independent and Google/Apple can't hold them hostage with the app stores.  That is something I hope Elon can work on.

As far as youtube alternatives, I am hearing people say that Rumble has been doing a great deal to set up their own independent infrastructure to support their site.  A number of people I watch are getting good view numbers over there and they are starting to pay out ad revenue.  IMO, they still have some user interface issues to work out, but I hope they do well.  Youtube has a big head start so it isn't something happening soon.

As a viewer (I don't upload content), I think Rumble's interface works well. I just haven't found much content there. They have a few big names, but not enough depth or variety to be able to replace YT for me.

I know he is a left libertarian commie something but screw it. Elon for(let's change the rules) President. His trolling alone is the only platform I need.

Elon Musk has promised to fully disclose what led to Twitter's decision to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story, 20 months after DailyMail.com authenticated its contents with top experts. 

Billionaire Musk responded to a user who demanded the social media giant get to the bottom of why the laptop was blacklisted from the site - which occurred before he bought Twitter. 

In an act of 'politically motivated censorship', Twitter deliberately prevented users from sharing a link to a front-page newspaper article about Hunter Biden's private life and his controversial business ties to Ukraine in the run-up to the 2020 Presidential Election between Biden's father and Donald Trump.

Now I'm really, really hoping that Apple and Google ban the Twitter app. I would buy an ElonPhone in a heartbeat. I'm certain it would be the least intrusive stock phone on the market. People who want privacy but who don't want to deal with the tech aspects of modified Android installs, etc. would jump on it. Not to mention, a dual band cell tower / Starlink phone would be off the hook.
