It’s been a while, so let’s get caught up on the Twitter sh*tshow

Even here in Indonesia (I’m here on vacation), word of Elon Musk’s batshit crazy antics are being discussed. You can’t get away from this dumpster fire. Here are a few of the latest highlights lowlights.

Anti-vaxxers LOVE the new Twitter

No misinformation policy? Brilliant! They’re now free to spread their lies.

Elon banning the wrong people.

Some left-leaning sites have had their Twitter accounts suspended. So much for “free speech,” huh, Elon? Yet at the same time, an infamous neo-Nazi has had been un-banned. Wut? At least Kanye has been banned for his swastika post.

Twitter is now “less safe,” says one former top official.

Ya think? Elon must of thought that running a social network would be easy. Turns out it’s not rocket science; it’s harder.

So the fight with Apple is over?

Apparently. But for how long?

Finally, did I ever post Elon’s tweet of his bedside table?

I can’t remember. But just in case I didn’t, here we go. The memes have been fantastic.
