also EIGENTLICH sollte man #Musk ja dankbar sein - durch #TwitterBlue sieht man direkt auf Anhieb, ob man es mit einem Schwurbler, rechten Deppen oder ähnlichen, unnötigen Menschen zu tun hat.

Und das Beste: Die Deppen BEZAHLEN auch noch, um sich selbst als so ein Idiot hinzustellen und sich selbst zu entlarven. Andere Leute haben viel Arbeit reingesteckt, um solche Netzwerke zu enthüllen - und die machen das da einfach SELBST!

Das hat schon was von 4D-Schach.

So naturally, just like most servives started to copy the #TwitterBlue subscription model, for stupid paid verifications, which failed in similar fashions, i.e., the recent #Gmail fiasco #Reddit has now decided to increase their #API costs and also basically block third-party apps for their services. Just like Twitter.

If only we had a service. Which was free. With API access. Various verification methods. Always-on and free API practices. Multiple apps for many different users and their needs.

Join the blackout on 12th to 14th June on Reddit by rather hanging around here.

Damn.

On Twitter I keep myself busy blocking blue checks. There was a tweet of extinction rebellion with a bunch of ridiculous blue replies, so I got to block a whole lot. However, one reply just went "anarchists!" and I was like "uhm yeah. Correct." So I didn't block him. Lol. I don't think he realises I agree with him.

#SocialMedia #Twitter #TwitterBlue #Subscriptions: "Twitter Blue's struggles since its launch nearly six months ago are more severe than previously revealed, new data suggests.

Since Musk's version of the subscription service launched last November, Twitter has only been able to convert around 640,000 Twitter users into paying Twitter Blue subscribers as of the end of April, as Mashable reported earlier this week.

While those numbers are lackluster, an even more telling detail about Twitter Blue is just how many of its earliest subscribers have canceled their subscriptions.

Out of about 150,000 early subscribers to Twitter Blue, just around 68,157 have stuck around and maintained a paid subscription as of April 30. Subscriptions are $8 per month – $11 on mobile."

I found an account on #Twitter which is subscribed to #TwitterBlue and with the ability to post hour-long videos at a time, this person has chosen to share movies in a few tweets. I have a scrolled back to March and have seen fewer than 5 videos taken down due #DMCA claims. The movies include Oscar winners, blockbusters, and even #JamesBond and #Marvel movies. Makes me think understaffing may be an issue over there…

Oh. Did you all hear about this? Because Cringelord Musk never fails at being an absolute, unequivocal clown, apparently Twitter Blue status cyberbullying is now being equated to the same magnitude as bigotry.

But what are the damages? Have these celebrities’ reputations been damaged?

Of course they have, but how much? $100? $10,000? $1,000,000?

I’d say about $420 each. Seems fair — that’s 4+ years of Twitter Blue

This is an extremely misguided analysis of #TwitterBlue

Sure, Blue gives more distribution. But what about the reputational damage that now comes with a blue badge?

If you're a #newsletter writer, your personal brand is a major selling point. In my opinion, tainting this brand to gain a little bit of extra distribution is a clear no brainer.
