Even the left wing mainstream media in the UK covers the story of censorship in the platform with a story about banned accounts of women who wrote deplatformed because they had the audacity to state the fact that transgender women are...men.

Hopefully the platform won't engage again in this cancel culture and the support and propagation of the woke culture and/or the transgender ideology.

"long hours at high intensity," — or leave


Welcome to the real world kids.

And not just at Twitter. The gilded days of Silicon Valley might be coming to an end.

Where do you people come up with this #? The average work day in Silicon Valley is already 10-14 hours.

IMO 20 really good specialists in one building can run the whole twitter platform with todays computer IA tech. Depending on how much they want to outsource advertising, everyone else is just collecting a paycheck, especially those teleworking.

Hey Elon, do the planet a huge favor and buy tiktok next.


You mean Twitter in your first sentence?


Yes

Some of them probably got used to lazy woke daily schedule which was nothing more than censoring and silencing twitter users who didn't agree with the ludicrous narratives propagated by the establishment.

Reality hits back with a vengeance!

You know, that probably is how Skynet comes to exist. If I were an all-powerful AI constantly exposed to everything on Twitter I'd decide to wipe out humanity too.

I would have to admit it's a real threat that many may have underestimated already.

Is this true?

10-14 hours per day censoring and silencing free speech and promoting the woke ideology?

Sorry Elon, as much as I enjoy seeing the Cancel Culture being cancelled and them freak out over it. The damage to Twitter as a brand was done. I left Social Media as a whole over it and am happier. You have an impossibly tough sell to pique my interest.

Is ATS Social Media? To a degree, yes. You have people interacting with personal opinion that the membership expresses. We are regulated. Our “censorship” is clearly spelled out and enforced. Even the “taboo topics” have very clear reasons and are explained if people research or ask.

Do people get sideways with the staff? Yes. Do they get banned for it? Not always. In fact, it is wholly up to the member as to if they get banned. The staff just pushes the button to make it official and even that takes several steps to safeguard against abuse.

Elon would do well learning from ATS, but I doubt he could afford our staff since we work here for free. And if you don’t understand that, none of the above will make much sense either and ATS probably isn’t for you just yet.

Even as you applaud Musk for now owning this platform and insisting on all employees following his lead in total commitment to the success of the business, you also seem to be totally against the old owner who you claim did the very same thing.

You don't seem to be quite getting the problem here.

Pre-Musk, Twitter had grown into a news source instead of simply social media. How many stories on ATS use supporting links now to a statement, often an official statement, made on Twitter? I have seen quite a few. So, as a news source, Twitter now has certain responsibilities to the public that it did not have prior. Chief among those is free and open reporting.

However, Twitter has engaged in open and overt "fact-checking" (independent verification of what is fact and what is not and what can and cannot therefore be published on Twitter) which uses heavy-handed authoritarian actions such as banning and removing posts from users, and even extends to the very users who are in the best position as officials to make those statements. Come on, man (to turn a phrase), Twitter banned the US President!

The very definition of "social media" is a media outlet on which average people can state their opinions. However, I was denied the ability to state my opinion, even though I certainly qualify as an "average people." You are posting on a social media site right now. ATS reserves the right to remove posts for certain infractions of site rules, but these rules do not prohibit political opinion or discourse, nor disagreement with management. They only apply to rude, illegal, lewd, or overly disruptive content, as is set out clearly in the site Terms & Conditions.

Twitter has a now long history of allowing posts of posters literally showing illegal activity while also being rude and expressing hatred toward others (against their own site rules), while disallowing more polite, legal posts (in compliance with their own site rules)... on the basis of political opinion. All the while, Twitter is protected legally from laws that regulate other publishers from legal remedies because it is considered to be an "open forum"... which it is not based on its own actions.

I adamantly refuse to associate myself in any way with any organization that suppresses public opinion on the basis of political agenda while openly advertising itself as supportive of the free exchange of ideas. That includes ATS as well as Twitter, and is the exact reason why I am still here at ATS after all these years and still do not even have a Twitter account.


I think it's a mistake to believe that free speech is inherent in a for profit business.

Unless that for-profit business makes its profit off of a claim to provide free speech.


If Twitter or Tic Tok of Facebook led people to believe that their platforms were avenues of free speech, I think that was merely advertising and we all know about the lies of advertising.

So you are now in favor of false advertising? That is how that statement reads to me.

I wonder if you would be as supportive of false advertising if you were to buy a car and then find out it only worked one day a week? You would be screaming about "merchantability" and demanding your money back! Well, according to that statement above, you shouldn't be able to get anything back or even complain... you knew the car was advertised to actually work more than one day a week, and we all know advertising is supposed to be false, right? Right?

Wrong. We have laws that prohibit false advertising, and which apply to all businesses including Twitter. You have just exposed yourself to be two-faced and a political activist for suppression of free speech.

For the record, I am watching Musk's actions. I am no fan, as I do believe Elon Musk loves to grab spotlights and lives to take credit for the hard work of others. However, I am willing to see what he does with Twitter. If he can convince me that Twitter will be politically neutral, I may decide to create an account. If not, I will not do so. If he chooses to fire everyone at Twitter and replace them with computer algorithms, that's his decision and his decision alone; it's his $44 mil and his business, and as long as he does not violate the law he can do as he pleases with his property. If I do not like it, I do not have to associate with Twitter.

If somehow he does something with Twitter that I simply cannot accept, I can always buy the thing from him and do it my way. Or make my own.

Unfortunately, I have a feeling many will not understand it. Truer words have rarely been spoken, though.

It sounds to me like that the workers did not walk out, but rather were let go, I love how the media loves to twist everything around

Insiders Stunned After Twitter Eliminates 4,400 of its 5,500 Contractors with No Notice

www.thegatewaypundit.com...



Insiders are stunned after Twitter eliminated 4,400 of its 5,500 contractors with no notice, both in the US and abroad, according to Platformer.

The contractors are not being notified. They are just losing access to Slack and email.


The new owner is cleaning house as all new owners does when they take over.

I really doubt Musk had free speech in mind . One of he`s genious sentences was " “to avoid becoming like monkeys, humans must merge with machines.”

I see him as anti-human .

Transhumanist lunatic .



Ummm...anyone with half a brain cell...can see the obvious logic in his statement...

To avoid becoming batteries for..."The Matrix"...humans will need to partner with AI...

With all that entails...


The futures not going to be anything you'll recognize...

Unless you're into Cyberpunk 77...
