Twitter's new 2500-word limit...

WTF?!

2500 freakin' words?

Ok, maybe I should post a little more from the article, maybe it's been posted already.

But I don't do the Twitter so I had no idea this happened and no interest in further edification.

2500 words!


[appleinsider.com]






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Slow down, amigo.

(Emphasis is mine)
”Introducing: Notes
We’re testing a way to write longer on Twitter.”


And…
A small group of writers are helping us test Notes.“






National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
As of July 16, 2022, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is now available by simply dialing 988. The previous number, 1-800-273-8255, will remain active.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

:whew:

Ok, it feels like a tiny bit of ballast has been tossed out of the descending Handbasket to Hell.

LOL, you might be correct if I had posted this on The Other Side.

I need Twitter to brief me about how I should feel about this.

BS! You do not. I have a tweet you made in 1961 saying you don’t need Twitter to brief you. It’s the one where you were giving Hugh Hefner a kelp scalp massage. EVERYBODY remembers it apparently, but you.







(I don’t know. Is that more “Gab”ish that Twitter? I referenced something earlier than 2017, so I think I avoided getting any Reddit in it, and there’s no mention of a Kardashian, so no TikTok or Buzzfeed overlap…)
