I think I'll apply to Twitter for a job now.
Michael Berry@MichaelBerrySho17hInstead of wasting $44 billion buying Twitter, Elon Musk could have spent it on the Clinton Global Initiative to eradicate poverty throughout the Clinton family.Apr 26, 2022 · 11:29 PM UTC
rwmalonemd@rwmalonemd·6hFurther regarding DJT sr getting deplatformed from Twitter. I think it was an early sign of the coming over reach by a political group (Uniparty collectivist-globalists) that thought it had won the final battle. They did it because they could. There are plenty of mean tweeting people on Twitter. This was really about defenestration of a political opponent.We should call it what it is.Posted on 3:05 AM · Apr 27th, 2022
rwmalonemd@rwmalonemd·7hLet's look back for a moment. Why was Trump deplatformed from Twitter? What specific thing? Because he was mean to people? It was way before January 06, so that is not the reason. Was there an official offense? "Glorification of violence policy"? Because he would not go to the inauguration? Pretty contrived.https://techcrunch.com/2021/01/08/why-...In my case it was posting the video of the Canadian COVID care alliance regarding the Pfizer clinical trials of the mRNA vaccine. https://www.canadiancovidcarealliance.org/media-resources...All of which was demonstrably true, and is now further validated by the court-ordered disclosure of the FDA documents.

And get rid of the kiosks. Ever since they were installed, McD's has gotten much slower. No human cashier = no accountability. Just a number on a screen, no face to order. So the cashier never turns to the supervisor and says "That guy has been waiting 10 minutes." "Oh, no, I see the problem. Harry, get the fries on."Instead the minutes just go by as you wait . I waited 20-30 minutes North of Orlando and waited an hour in Brevard. It was so bad the Uber drivers got cancellations and people left without food. And yes, I go once a week for my kid to get a cheeseburger. Even the turnpike one was slower than shit. I never remember fast food being this slow - and never remember Dunkies closing at 5PM, drive-thru only, or not having anything after 1PM. Frankly, I think corporate America stopped giving a fuck, and it reminds me to buy from real people and small business.
And you now get machines that will refuse you the option to to talk to a representative and even purposefully hang up on you. lol

This event has given me another example of why Trump fails. He is a Pompus showboat blowhard, that wants all of the credit and all of the glory for "Make America Great Again". Every time someone comes along with a MAGA or America first gesture, and wish to combine forces with Trump. He trashes them, and kicks it down, and tries to distance himself as far away from it as possible. Now one could ponder the reason being he's wary of sabatures sent to engraciate himself only to crap on him and undermine his efforts. That would be a valid point, except he accepts every vile disgusting Snake Viper, Wolf in Sheep's clothing, and Mule Skinner that was sent his way to fill a government spot, when he was President. The only person he picked that didn't stab him in the back was Ben Carson. But yet he refuses to shake any America First hand that is extended to him. He smites them down, and talks shit. The Truth is Truth Social isn't going to go anywhere. It's doomed to fail...
Self serve kiosks are slower because most people are morons
straight, white, men!
Dunkies closing at 5PM, drive-thru only
Stephen Miller@StephenMApr 27I, for one, am enraged by the sinister @elonmusk plot to allow ordinary citizens—many without PHDs, let alone NYT subscriptions—to freely express themselves & question the unblemished wisdom of politicians, gov’t experts, even CEOs. This is the dark & dangerous road to democracy.Apr 27, 2022 · 1:54 PM UTC
Isn’t it obvious by now that pervasive dishonesty is the foremost crisis of many crises in Western Civ generally and American life in particular? All our authorities have made themselves false, lying their way into the broad collapse of confidence that drives the nation toward some culminating horror show of strife and loss.The go-to lever of concerted mind-fuckery has been the term-of-art misinformation, applied especially to things and propositions that are truthful — thereby confounding the public’s ability to discern truth in anything, or to discover how they are being misled in matters of life and death. We’ve allowed the worst in human nature to disgrace ourselves. Satan, Father of Lies, is Western Civ’s paragon of disgrace, and so American life appears more and more Satanic and disgraceful.All this was epitomized in the operation of Twitter, the cheerful little bluebird of social messaging which evolved in a very few years into an instrument of coercion, punishment, deception, and lying, until it became clear that Twitter’s misinformation was misinformation itself. Half the nation doesn’t believe anything it is told by those in authority and the other half revels in its reckless abuse of authority.And so, it’s refreshing to see one Elon Musk act to seize control of this Satanic vector of disgrace. Mr. Musk appears motivated to defeat the culture of lying by restoring open debate in the ubiquitous online public arena. It’s a heroic deed. But, you see, it’s not merely Twitter’s management or its biggest shareholders that Mr. Musk is messing with, but malign forces in the US government, which have surreptitiously taken control of Twitter and other social media to work its will on events. If you don’t know that Twitter, Facebook, and Google are proxies serving the US Intel Community, then you have not been paying attention.Using Twitter to impose that culture of pervasive dishonesty in public chatter is what gave permission for all others to follow the script. Medicine has succeeded completely in disgracing and destroying itself by lying about everything connected to Covid-19, from its origins, to the insanely outlawed treatments for it, to the harmful actions of the vaccines, to the hidden data that might tell us the results of all that lying. Twitter set the tone for that with its censorship policies. Anyone who suggested that lockdowns, masking, remdesivir protocols, and vaccine mandates violated common decency was tossed out of the arena, often with added punishment of losing a career, a professional license, a livelihood, and having to endure the betrayal of colleagues cowed into silence.Twitter also enabled the suicide of higher education, which has succumbed to a plague of Jacobin craziness that would embarrass the inmates of an old-time locked ward. The failure of authority on campus is cosmic. Can you name a single college president who has raised a voice against such manifest idiocy as men competing in women’s sports, the invention of ersatz fields of study, the re-segregation of dormitories and graduation ceremonies, the shouting down of invited lecturers, the persecution of free-thinking faculty, the kangaroo courts for sex disputes, and a hundred other violations of intellect and decency?All this coerced insanity has been nurtured by social media’s sly mechanisms for bending narrative into propaganda: their beloved algorithms, all fine-tuned to destroy anything that touches on truth. The result is a country so marinated in falsehood that it can’t construct a coherent consensus of reality, and can’t take coherent actions to avert its own collapse.Mighty forces are marshalling to prevent Elon Musk from buying up Twitter stock and taking the company private. BlackRock, Vanguard, the prince regent of Saudi Arabia are all principal stockholders in Twitter, with gazillions in capital to theoretically match and overcome Mr. Musk’s moves. Meanwhile, the Tesla boss maintains a prankish self-confidence in this exploit, offering cryptically comic gibes to a news media that is openly vested in opposing him. You have to suppose that he’s gamed out the gamble. He’s looking like someone who has dealt out a hand of cards aiming to shoot-the-moon.The prospect of an open public arena for ideas is exhilarating all of a sudden, considering how the information-stream got hijacked in service to the wicked. It’s fun to see their tortured casuistry as they plead for “content moderation” — the phrase du jour for censorship, as if it were a good thing rather than the opposite of anything good. This feels like the beginning of something positive after a long siege of political degeneracy. Let the sunshine in to disinfect the arena. Cast the Demons back into darkness. You go, Elon!
"It does not surprise me to see that some interest groups are planning on throwing the kitchen sink at this transaction in an effort to derail it," Carr added in a statement to FOX Business. "Of course, the FCC has no authority to block this transaction. And while I am not in a position to speak for the DOJ or the FTC -- the other agencies that were identified in that Open Markets Institute release -- I am not aware of any basis upon which any federal agency can block it," he said. "But I defer to those agencies to speak to the scope of their authorities." "Suffice [it] to say, it is far from clear that the groups objecting to this transaction are going to do so because they're interested in the neutral application of competition and antitrust laws -- these efforts look like a move motivated by a desire to prevent the free exchange of political views on Twitter," Carr concluded.

zzyzzx saysSelf serve kiosks are slower because most people are moronsThis. My first W-2 job was a bagger at a grocery store when I was 14. I like the self serve to be honest, because I know how to use it and be quick about it. Even with full service I'll still put my frozen foods next to each other, cold stuff like cheese together, boxes together, etc. to make it quicker for them to bag it. And living in the country I need to keep the cold stuff with cold stuff for a 20-30 minute drive. I'm polite, but if I see them fucking up bagging I do say something. McDonalds it makes no sense to automate it. Though I rarely go. Last time I dealt with it I just walked away and let the wife handle it. No patience on my end. It's so much easier to say I want a #4 or whatever with large fry and Coke to a person that uses the system daily. Groceries are different if you've had to scan them an...
Instead he puts out a definitive statement that he will no doubt have to back track if it does take off and freedom is restored. Hell
But I suspect hell go back to twitter in time (after TS flounders)
But, at least theres a chance, assuming the e2e is done well, that they cannot read past DMs,

Hircus saysBut, at least theres a chance, assuming the e2e is done well, that they cannot read past DMs,The only reason to have a centralized server is to intercept communication today. I'm working with NAT traversal right now which allows your machine to DIRECTLY communicate with my machine (through multiple servers of course, but not a centralized one - just switches). This is frustratingly hard as shit to figure out how it works, but once you understand it, it's amazingly simple.Skype was E2E P2P originally. Making P2P is entirely undocumented (I'LL FIX THAT GOD DAMN IT) but one you get past that point, E2E is truly possible.The whole internet today is based on the idea that these two things are "hard to do" - and they aren't.
