    I haven’t really noticed much difference other than not as many tweets but I have no idea who is actually sweeting less. I follow so many it’s hard to tell. Musk should have reached a settlement with twitter instead of wasting $40B.

    I spent 2 minutes trying to figure how to close my account, got bored with it and just deleted the app. Meh. How many others out there like me are there, adding to the abandonment rate?

    I notice that in the past when I blocked someone I would receive a message saying Twitter would note the content I was blocking and use that information to improve the algorithm. Now I just get a message asking if I want to unblock them. Um...no. I just blocked them. I don't want to unblock them.

    I honestly thought it was higher...

    The amount of spam dms I get now is like triple what it was before. But I thought Elon was getting rid of the bots!

    Did you know Apple puts a secret 30% tax on everything you buy through their App Store?

    Musk the Internet Clown thinks this cost is a secret? So, he's a fucking moron then cause even I knew that. He marks the tweet as a spoiler alert. Fucking idiot.

    The coyote just looked down. And still wants to fight gravity.

    Even funnier because he is cursing Apple and swearing he will never use their products...while tweeting from an iPhone.

    Saw people saying a lot of them have lost followers and a debate ensued over whether it was Elon deleting bots or people deactivating their accounts. My experience is that it's the latter. My own follower count has remained steady because, while a couple dozen people who were following me have deactivated I've been followed by even more ladies from OnlyFans (hey, great job going after those spammers and scammers, Elon!). Meanwhile the main list I created and follow has dropped from over 300 accounts to 266. These weren't bots. These were people I either know personally or are celebrities/brands that are quite real. I have also noticed a major slowdown in traffic on said list. A few weeks ago chatter was lively with hundreds of tweets every hour. It was impossible to keep up with at times. Now there are times where there might be a couple dozen tweets in an hour, mostly from the politically active in the UK. Unless there is a live sporting event the list is fairly quiet. I've also noticed Twitter loads very slowly on my laptop, when it loads at all. Not a good sign.

    And as has been pointed out, Elon is in for a rude awakening when Google and Apple come for their cut of the $8 Twitter Blue subscriptions.

    I saw Ted Cruz on Twitter was whining that all companies who were bailing on Twitter Advertising were against free speech. He went to Harvard. He has a law degree. He hasn't actually read The Constitution of the United States apparently.

    Harvard is where all the rich stupid go to get degrees.

    He’s on a roll. Going after Vindmann, tweeting pic of a gun near his Diet Coke cans, using Pepe the frog meme, and teeeting with “88” to speak nazi

    he’s also supposedly calling execs of companies who have stopped advertising to berate them.

    Also has a similar Diet Coke fetish too. (Caffeine free to boot.)
