Can you explain more fully please. I am contemplating registering on Twitter.


Twatter, as I recall needs your phone number to register. Once they link that to your account, it's absolutely permanent. I never will link my phone to anything on the net. It's a pain in the butt sometimes, but there's no phone # linked here for example. I could have 70 accounts here, and YOU wouldn't know, but Patrick would.

Part of the problem is you don't want trolls and PR assholes on your platform (or you want AUTHORIZED ones) - I think I have a concept (that MAY lead to group stupidity) but will allow people to identify bad actors - i.e. propagandists and trolls, and just eliminate them.

But no way to keep anon on Twitter?

There are some public addresses where they have anonymous SMS - like www.mailinator.com.
Personally, I think email as it is now has to be done away with, and phone numbers as well. I've given this example before, but this is my TOX Id for https://tox.chat/?source=patrick.net

2779E73EE1BE4E85A52DDA1E0E0DE8006905250171725CD64BE0ED1C29DACC4C03491A64CDA5

That is (mostly) an ECC key. It's unique in the world, it's unique to my machine, and my account running it. I can generate 100's of thousands of those and they will all be unique, even if everybody generated 100's of thousands of them, no two are likely to match.

You can not randomly connect to anybody by GUESSING their ID - there's too many possible numbers. If that's your ID, there's no way to get spam is there? Why do we only have 10 billion phone numbers? Dial a random number and you're likely to hit somebody. It should be Trillions of Trillions of Trillons of possible numbers. You'd guess numbers randomly for a lifetime, and never hit a person.

Anonymity has its problems, but they can be identified over time. I used to be a big film buff and IMDB was great, it would recognize you liked movies A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H, and I and it would then find that somebody else liked A,B,C,D,J,K,L,M, and N. And it would make honest suggestions that because you liked certain films, the other person would probably have the same taste and vice-versa. I don't think such a thing should be limited to just films. The problem is offloading it to a personal server instead of a centralized one and a server today, it's $100. Your phone is a fucking server today.

We have to distribute communication, no head to the beast to cut off.

Ive seen some sites that will sell or rent you a phone number's SMS access for a few bucks. I tried some free ones once, but all the phone numbers were already registered w/ twitter and instagram, and you cant register the same # twice, so it wont work. It makes me wonder if I would have the same issue even with a paid phone number.

An alternative is to buy a burner prepaid phone for 20-30 bucks, and youll prob get a phone number with it. You can then use prepaid MVNOs to get new phone numbers by buying a new sim card (many MVNOs will sell you a sim card + 1 mo of airtime for $10-25, allowing you to get a new phone number). You could actually just do that with your current phone, but they (phone company) will be able to link the phone IMEI number and link your accounts, so buying a new phone gets you a new IMEI that isnt linked to your phone. You may not care about the phone company being able to link, and just want a new phone number so that twitter doesnt know who you are, in which case, just get a new sim.

Kinda expensive for a twitter account tho...

Not a real Musk fan but you can clearly see by his past behavior that he takes risks to his businesses and life instead of toeing the woke line. All his tweets investigated by the SEC, his feud with gates, his move to TX etc. I'm def hopeful that it will be much better than the current twatter govt arm of censorship. We'll see

It's fine to be hopeful, but Clinton had "a feud" with George H. Bush, Clinton had "a feud" with George the Lessor, and Obozo had "a feud" with George the Lessor.

I have no trust in these mother fuckers. The fact that Musk didn't face prosecution for misleading statements to the SEC, the fact that his bullshit car company is worth more than GE, Ford, and Honda combined, I don't trust this mother fucker one bit. He didn't create Tesla either, he took it over.

Just like we had hope that Mr. Hope and Change was going to reverse the disastrous policies of Duh, and he didn't, I expect Musk to be the same fucking thing.

But hopefully I'm wrong, but I'm not often wrong about these things. I was wrong about Trump, and I was goddamned happy to be wrong about him. At least I think I was wrong about him. Time will tell.

Doxing is just one concern. Speaking freely could end up costing you everything, this whole woke shit and cancel culture isn’t over just because some billionaire owns a platform.

And what if it is the Trojan horse towards implementing a platform for payment, and social credit scoring just like in China? We know Musk is into human microchip implantation, digital “currencies”, Internet service provider and now social media, what if he combines that all into a mark of the best type system that becomes “you can’t buy or sell unless you take the microchip implant? Not likely, but just asking what if here. I have no reason to trust Musk.

You are spot on. I am from the same 3rd world. In my observation,
Most of their parents either directly work for or do business with commie corrupt gov to get easy money. Their children are shield from real world problems. Once they move here, they join dems and thinking being right is "racist". Other category is already slaves in their minds and looking for next masters and chains themself up and ignore what this country offers.

This jives with a few of my indian/chinese immigrant tech coworker friends. They all seem to view "the right is racist" as fact, and view dems as fighting for minority immigrants like them, dismantling whyte privilege and supremacy so they an have a more fair shot in america. Im not surprised they took on such views, as its what the dem platform is designed to do, and seeing past it IMO usually requires paying close attention, and many people just dont care much about politics, and so dont deep dive and think deeply about some of this stuff. I think most live in quite the liberal media echo chamber.

That vid is an instruction meant to be downloaded into NPCs via antenna.



Since theyre losing control of twitter, and wont be able to stop the truth now, they turn to the next best thing aside from censoring the speech - convincing NPCs the they should block and ignore. Basically, since they cannot stop the broadcast of speech, they will try to stop the reception of it.

If theyre smart, they will start a new campaign where wokes are encouraged to virtue signal by posting screenshots of how many raycist trumpers theyve blocked on twitter, making it into a competition to ignore as much "hate speech" as possible. Not posting screenshots = closet trumper.

That Leslie Berland (Twitter CMO) is a total loon: "Musk has questionable ethics". And sounds like a "Strong Woman" which is now what they call that rhymes with "Switch"

Further 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.

Let'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.

It looks like he has waited for all the Starlink stuff to get up there before going to town. Some were upset he offered Starlink to Ukraine to keep their comms and internet going, but that was kind of like DARPA offering the people a 'free' spy app called Facebook. I wonder who was getting all that Starlink communication traffic?

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.

Agreed. Most of the automation has gone horribly wrong. Even the automated barista you see at a few airports and downtowns only.

Goes without saying that corporate America has used the scamdemic to drastically cut back on any and all customer service. 24/7 service is so 2018, it's now monday to friday 8 to 3 ET or fuck you. 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

Yep, had this experience just yesterday with the Power Company. Took over my ex-wife's bill (I try not to give her money but rather pay bills, which have a record and I know things are paid), paid the past few months, all of a sudden there's an extra month's charge and a bigass late fee. Took me 30 minutes of calling to get somebody in India... and the phone system kept sending copies of my bill to my email like 5 times until I figured out how to get a fucking person since I knew what the amount was, I was disputing it. Any case, they lifted the late fees but I got stuck with an extra power bill, dammit. Turns out she didn't pay the month before she had me start paying, but because of COVID or something it never showed up until now.
