Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Meta.
Elon Musk has pissed some people off. Granted, that doesn’t sound terribly newsworthy. But this time he hasn’t only pissed off the people who, for reason of politics or personality, are naturally predisposed to dislike him. This time he’s pissed off his own user base on Twitter. The platform introduced temporary read limits this week designed to address “extreme levels of data scraping” and “system manipulation”, restricting the number of daily Tweets free to view to 6,000 for verified users, 600 for unverified, and 300 for new unverified accounts. And people are profoundly displeased about this. Because you can re-platform all the Nazis you want, but don’t you dare get in the way of our crippling addiction to social media (that’s the consensus of Twitter users, not us). And, funnily enough, Meta chose this of all weeks to release their own version of Twitter called ‘Threads’ – a rather appropriate name given all the wicked webs currently being woven by these two maniacs. And, not for nothing, Threads logged five million sign-ups in its first four hours of operation. Squeaky bum time for Elon. Outstanding shithousery from Zuck. But I wish these two would just hurry up and fight or kiss or whatever already. The flirting is unbearable.Read Original Story
